Does Kissing of Black stone of Kaba have any link with Shaktism of the hindus?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Shaktism

Shaktism (SanskritŚāktaṃ, शाक्तं; lit., ‘doctrine of power’ or ‘doctrine of the Goddess’) is a denomination of Hinduism that focuses worship upon Shakti or Devi – the Hindu Divine Mother – as the absolute, ultimate Godhead.

example:

The Devi Mahatmyam or Devi Mahatmya (Sanskritdevīmāhātmyam, देवीमाहात्म्यम्), or “Glory of the Goddess“) is aHindu religious text describing the victory of the goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasura.

Lalita Sahasranama (IAST: lalitāsahasranāma) is a text from Brahmanda Purana. It is a sacred text to the Hinduworshippers of the Goddess Lalita Devi, i.e. the Divine Mother, in the form, Shakti.

Lajja Gauri is a goddess associated with abundance and fertility, and she has been euphemistically described as Lajja(that is, modesty). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lajja_Gauri

Kamakhya (Assamese: কামাখ্যা)) is an important Tantric goddess that evolved in the Himalayan hills. She is closely identified with Kali and Maha Tripura Sundari. According to the Tantric texts (Kalika PuranaYogini Tantra) that are the basis for her worship at the Kamakhya temple, a 16th-century temple in the Kamrup district of Assam. The temple is primary amongst the 51 Shakti Peethas related to the cult of Sati, and remains one of the most important Shakta temples and Hindu pilgrimage sites in the world. According to various myths and traditions, there are 51 pieces of Sati’s body scattered across the Indian subcontinent. These places are called shakti peethas and are dedicated to various powerful goddesses. Kamarupa (“form of desire”) is the region in which theyoni (“vulva,” “womb,” or “source”) is said to have fallen to earth, and the Kamakhya temple was said to have been constructed on this spot.

Hence basically it is a yoni worship . 

Yoni (Sanskrit: योनि yoni) is a Sanskrit word with different meanings, most basically “vagina” or “womb”.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoni

Why did the people worship it ?

They thought it will help them get children. It was a fertility cult.

…………………………………………………………….

Did we have yoni worship outside India?

In Roman mythologyDiana (lt. “heavenly” or “divine”) was the goddess of the hunt, the moon and birthing, being associated with wild animals and woodland, and having the power to talk to and control animals. She was equated with the Greek goddess Artemis,[1] though she had an independent origin in Italy. Diana was worshipped in ancient Roman religion and is revered in Roman Neopaganism and StregheriaDianic Wicca, a largely feminist form of the practice, is named for her. Diana was known to be the virgin goddess of childbirth and women.

In the classical period of Greek mythology, Artemis (Ancient Greek: Ἄρτεμις) was often described as the daughter ofZeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. She was the Hellenic goddess of the huntwild animalswilderness,childbirthvirginity and protector of young girls, bringing and relieving disease in women; she often was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows.[6]

At Ephesus in Ionia, Turkey, her temple became one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It was probably the best known center of her worship except for Delos. There the Lady whom the Ionians associated with Artemis throughinterpretatio graeca was worshiped primarily as a mother goddess, akin to the Phrygian goddess Cybele, in an ancient sanctuary where her cult image depicted the “Lady of Ephesus” adorned with multiple rounded breast like protuberances on her chest.

Eileithyia or Ilithyia (/ɪlɨˈθ.ə/;[1] Ancient Greek: Εἰλείθυια) was the Greek goddess of childbirth.[2]

BIBLE.

The Riot in Ephesus Acts 19:35
34But when they recognized that he was a Jew, a single outcry arose from them all as they shouted for about two hours, “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!” 35After quieting the crowd, the town clerk said, “Men of Ephesus, what man is there after all who does not know that the city of the Ephesians is guardian of the temple of the great Artemis and of the image which fell down from heaven [which means a meteorite!36“So, since these are undeniable facts, you ought to keep calm and to do nothing rash.…

http://biblehub.com/acts/19-35.htm

The first shrine to the Goddess Artemis was probably built around 800 B.C. on a marshy strip near the river at Ephesus…..That earliest temple contained a sacred stone, probably a meteorite, that had “fallen from Jupiter.”

http://www.unmuseum.org/ephesus.htm

Western Scientists have confirmed that the black stone, which resides near the Kaaba in the Holy City of Mecca, is an outside METEORITE OBJECT!

http://www.answering-christianity.com/black_stone.htm

The Black Stone was venerated in pre-Islamic times, and is now the focal point of the Kaaba. There is speculation over whether the stone is made of agate, basalt lava, stony meteorite, glass or pumice.[19]

According to a saying attributed to Muhammad, the Black Stone had “descended from Paradise whiter than milk but the sins of the sons of Adam had made it black”.[32]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaaba

Islamic tradition holds that the stone fell from Heaven to show Adam and Eve where to build an altar, which became the first temple on Earth.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Stone

Allāt or al-Lāt (Arabic: اللات‎) was a Pre-Islamic Arabian goddess who was one of the three chief goddesses of Mecca. Her siblings were also worshipped The shrine and temple dedicated to al-Lat in Taif was demolished by Abu Sufyan ibn Harb, on the orders of Muhammad, during the Expedition of Abu Sufyan ibn Harb, in the same year as the Battle of Tabuk[1] (which occurred in October 630 AD).[2][3]

The Greek historian Herodotus, writing in the 5th century BC, considered her the equivalent of Aphrodite:

The Assyrians call Aphrodite Mylitta, the Arabians Alilat, and the Persians Mitra. In addition that deity is associated with the Indian deity Mitra.
In the Qur’an, she is mentioned along with al-‘Uzzá and Manāt in Sura 53:19–23.
Al-lāt is also explicitly attested from early Islamic records discussing the pre-Islamic period. According to the Book of Idols (Kitāb al-ʾAṣnām) by Hishām ibn al-Kalbi, the pre-Islamic Arabs believed Al-lāt resided in the Kaʿbah and also had an idol inside the sanctuary:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allat

Aphrodite (Listeni/æfrəˈdti/ af-rə-dy-teeGreek: Ἀφροδίτη) is the Greek goddess of lovebeauty, pleasure, and procreation. Her Roman equivalent is the goddess Venus.

Hence shakti puja &/or Fertility cults existed in pre-islamic arabia.

BUKHARI:

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 667:

Narrated ‘Abis bin Rabia:  Umar came near the Black Stone and kissed it and said “NO DOUBT, I KNOW THAT YOU ARE A STONE AND CAN NEITHER BENEFIT ANYONE NOR HARM ANYONE. Had I not seen Allah’s Apostle kissing you I would not have kissed you.”  

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 675:

Narrated Zaid bin Aslam from his father who said:  “Umar bin Al-Khattab addressed the Corner (Black Stone) saying, ‘BY ALLAH! I KNOW THAT YOU ARE A STONE AND CAN NEITHER BENEFIT NOR HARM. Had I not seen the Prophet touching (and kissing) you, I would never have touched (and kissed) you.’ Then he kissed it and said, ‘There is no reason for us to do Ramal (in Tawaf) except that we wanted to show off before the pagans, and now Allah has destroyed them.’ ‘Umar added, ‘(Nevertheless), the Prophet did that and we do not want to leave it (i.e. Ramal).'”

MUSLIM:

Book 007, Number 2914:

Abdullah b. Sarjis reported:  I saw the bald one, i. e. ‘Umar b. Khattib (Allah be pleased with him). kissing the Stone and saying: BY ALLAH. I AM KISSING WITH FULL CONSCIOUSNESS OF THE FACT THAT YOU ARE A STONE AND THAT YOU CAN NEITHER DO ANY HARM NOR GOOD; and if I had not seen Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) kissing you. I would not have kissed you. The rest of the hadith is the same.

Conclusion: Can we conclude that the prophet was kissing the stone as a habit he had acquired in his pagan [idolatrous pauranik hinduism] days? After all, he was a idolator [murti-poojak] for a better part of his life! Or did he want a boy-child? How can we know the reality ! Why r the muslims repeating his ‘mistake’ if it is just a stone? Take my advice, transfer it to a store or better still, destroy it.

Note: Fertility cults, worshipping female forms, etc have no sanction in the vedas.

Also, Diana of Ephesus is staging a comeback against christianity.

  1. My dear, the Kaaba Stone is not A BLACK COLORED STONE. Rather than blindly following internet gossips, for once do some work and see how it actually looks and it certainly doesn’t look opaque black or like a meteor as people declare everywhere. Anyway, from the very starting Islam has been ridiculed to such an extent that people end up reading Koran (out of curiosity) and then most of them realize what it really means… they embrace Islam never to turn back again.
    As the LORD reminds mankind to look around and see the signs of his creation and destruction. One of them is Noah’s Arc. This boat rests on top of Mount Judi(near the Turkish, Syrian, Iraqi border) close to the city of Mosul. This boat will remain intact until the last days as one of the many signs to mankind to remember the fate of of those who refused to believe in Thee and mocked thy prophets…
    But then there have always been people who value their pride, ego and heritage above all and Lord has put a seal upon the eyes, ears and hearts of such people as it was with the people who refused to believe in true unseen lord even after witnessing the miracles of Moses, Jesus and many more.
    Western people say, Islam spreads like wild fire and it continues even today. The excuse they give is forcible conversion. If that would have been the case, people could have reverted back later or at-least, tell their children about their true belief !!! Why?

    Coordinates of Noah’s Arc-
