My dear salman you are, as I wrote before, either ignorant of what Islam is all about or you are intellectualy dishonest. And in this case you seem to be either unaware that Muslim pilgilrms have to kiss the black stone at al-Ka3bba, and this is an example of your ignorance about Islam and pagansim, or you already know that pilgrims in Mecca have to kiss the black stone and was hoping that I do not know and in this case I call this intellectual dishonesty! So which one is it? The worst possibility is that you know that this kissing of the balck stone is nothing but kissing an idol and you are only in denial.

Now this is what the ritual of the Hajj is in the first five days is all baout and I challenge you to prove me wrong:

1. The hajj after arriving in mecca, and having the simple hajj's dressing and perfoming the ablutions and prayers the hajj moves on to stage two

2. Now the pilgirim arrives in the precincts of Mecca.

3. Next the hajj is not supposed to kill animals, tear up plants, indulge in violence and no oh i forgot no sex please.

4. Then the hajj performs more ablutions and prayers at al-Masjid al-Haram.

5. Then the hajj kisses the black stone

This is pagansim period. But the poor theologians your allah and his rasul had no clue that this is nothing but paganism.

I will not bore you with the rest of this childish ritual called al-Hajj.

Now feel free to prove me wrong...
