    Does anyone find the original symbol of the devil interesting?

    The saud's later covered the Obelisk and made it more of a wall, potentially for safety reasons. It looks like this now.

    But I really find the original tradition of stoning Obelisks fascinating...

    this is part of the process of hajj.

    mainly because at the time of abraham, the devil tried to stray him from the path.

    abraham was then ordered by gabriel to pelt stones at the devil, to drive him away and hence.

    it's about time they built safety walls around it, most muslims aiming was shit and ended up hitting other muslims on the other side.

    there are a couple of muslim practises im not really convinced about..but I guess they are all of symbolic nature, like slaughtering a cow, stoning a wall, praying towards mecca..imo they re not really all that important..

    yeah, i always questioned the slaughtering/sacrifice of an animal.

    in turkey, before the eid, there were many sheep that jumped off a cliff in fear.

    facing mecca makes sense, it unites all who are praying to face the same direction.
