The Bible’s holy stones. They even get anointed with oil. Let us look at the Bible’s sacred black stones

Genesis 28:18

When Jacob got up early the next morning, he took the rock that he had used for a pillow and stood it up for a place of worship. Then he poured olive oil on the rock to dedicate it to God.

So here we clearly see that the rock that Jacob, peace be upon him, used for sleeping and resting became a holy object of worship that needed to be anointed by having oil being poured on it.

We further read from the Bible about holy stones that GOD Almighty supposedly forbade the believers from even edging or trimming:

Exodus 20:25

25 If you ever build an altar for me out of stones, do not use any tools to chisel the stones, because that would make the altar unfit.

Isaiah 29:12 mentions the first Quran-Revelation upon Prophet Muhammad in Cave Hira by the name. The Quran’s first revelation upon Prophet Muhammad inside cave Hira.

Black stone and Qibla is in the Bible too

Jacob set a stone (black stone) and called it HOUSE OF GOD. (Genesis 28:10-22).

God reminded Jacob about the black stone he set to be God’s house (Genesis 35:1-3)

Jesus confirmed the Black stone in the book of Matthew 21:42-43

.

We Muslims are gifted with 5 times Salaat=Prayer to touch our heads down i.e., 92 Sajdahs every day.

Gen.28:22 And this ” Stone ” which I have set for a pillar, shall be ” God’s House “

Genesis 28:18

When Jacob got up early the next morning, he took the rock that he had used for a pillow and stood it up for a place of worship. Then he poured olive oil on the rock to dedicate it to God,
