Mohammed dedicates the black stone of Mecca from a 14th century Moslem painting. The black stone, a meteor, had been worshipped before Islam as the seat of many gods. He was kept in the Kaaba and the holiest relic of the Muslims, believing he was a fallen angel in sin, whom God had turned into a stone; on the day of the Last Judgment he will regain his angelic form. A 1315 illustration from the Jami al-Tawarikh, inspired by the Sirah Rasul Allah story of Muhammad.
