"Circumambulation of the Ka'bah (tawaaf), going between as-Safa and al-Marwah (sa'i), and stoning the Jamaraat have only been ordained to establish the remembrance of Allah."The one who circumambulates the kabah, does so whilst feeling awe of Allah in his heart. Thus he is in a state of remembrance of Allah and all his movements – walking, kissing or touching the Black Stone and the Yemeni Corner, or pointing to the Black Stone – all come under the heading of remembering Allah, because they are all acts of worship, and all acts of worship are remembrance of Allah, in general terms.
I know you are a stone and have no power to harm or benefit; were it not that I saw the Prophet (saw) kissing you, I would not have kissed you.With regard to what some think, that the purpose behind that is to seek blessing (barakah) from it, there is no basis for that, so it is invalid.
