Prophets are the greatest men that ever lived. Prophets received Revelation from Allah and conveyed it to the people. The prophets received the Revelations and conveyed them exactly in the language Allah ordered. The language of the scriptures is created, but Allah’s speech is not. A messenger is a prophet who comes with abrogating some of the laws brought by the previous messenger or receives a new set of laws. Prophets were intelligent, trustworthy, truthful, did not commit major sins and never left their Religion. Many prophets have lived in the past. Muhammad, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, who lived some 1400 years ago, was the last and greatest prophet.
Other prophets before him include: Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Ishmael, Jacob, Joseph (son of Jacob), David, Solomon, Moses, and Jesus, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon all of them.
The true scriptures were Revelations received by prophets. Moses and Jesus both received scriptures, but what are now called the Torah and the Bible have been tampered with by man and are not the true Revelations received by the great messengers Moses and Jesus. The only scripture which is unchanged and will never be changed is the Qur’an, which is the scripture Allah gave Muhammad, His last prophet, in clear and eloquent Arabic. Allah has promised to protect the Qur’an from any changes by man, and it has remained unchanged since it was received some 1400 years ago. Unlike the prophets before him who were sent to a particular people, Muhammad was sent to all people who lived at his time and all people who live after him until the Day of Judgment when the earth will be destroyed.
Allah knows best.
“(On that Day when the Trumpet shall be sounded) All faces shall be humbled before the Ever-Living, the Self-Subsisting Lord, and he who bears the burden of iniquity will have failed.
But whosoever does righteous works, being a believer, shall have no fear of suffering wrong or loss.” [20:111-112]

Hajar al-Aswad (The Black Stone), which is set in the eastern corner of the Ka’bah. Tawaf is started and ended by facing this sacred stone. Throughout the ages, innumerable people including many of the Prophets (alaihi al-salam), Prophet Muhammed (Salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam) Himself, Sahabah’s (radi Allah anho), Pious personalities and millions of Muslims whom have performed Hajj and Umrah have placed their blessed lips on it.
1) Special consideration must be taken when one intends to kiss the Hajar al-Aswad. One should neither push others nor harm anyone and must remember even though it is Sunnah to kiss Hajar al-Aswad it is also forbidden (haram) to cause harm or be hurtful towards others. When the area is crowded, it will suffice to merely point towards the Hajar al-Aswad with ones hand or a stick while reciting the Takbeer and then to kiss the hand or stick. Although the Prophet (Salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam) kissed the Hajar al-Aswad directly, He (Salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam) also pointed towards it when the area was crowded, it is therefore clear that both kissing it and pointing towards it are Sunnah.
It is in Hadith – Narrated by Naafi’: I saw Ibn Umar touch the Stone with his hand then he kissed his hand. He (Ibn Umar) said, I have never ceased to do this since I saw the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon Him) do it. (Sahih Bukhari & Muslim).
2) The Hajar al-Aswad was brought from Jannah and presented to Ibrahim (alaihi al-salam) to be placed on the corner of the Ka’bah. Ibn ‘Abbas (aradi Allah anho) narrated that the Prophet (Salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The Black Stone came down from Paradise. [Tirmidhi]
3) Du’as are accepted at the Hajar al-Aswad.
