    miles with many thousands of little hills which are very near to
    one another.  They are all stony-rock, and blackish, and pretty
    near of a bigness, appearing at a distance like cocks of hay,
    but all pointing towards Mecca.”

[6] Burton says the black stone is volcanic, but is thought by some
    to be a meteorite or aerolite.  Burckhardt thought it composed of
    lava.  Of its appearance Ali Bey says:  “It is a block of volcanic
    basalt, whose circumference is sprinkled with little crystals,
    with rhombs of tile-red feldspath on a dark background like
    velvet or charcoal.”

[7] By the latest statistics the number of Mohammedans now scattered
    throughout Asia, Africa, and the south-eastern part of Europe
    amounts to some 176,834,372.

[8] Moslems assert that upon this night Mohammed was carried through
    the seven heavens of which El Islam tells.

    and is symbolic of the origin of creation.

[10] Burton gives seven hundred.
