Thousands of worshipers approach the Black Stone from the beginning of the tawaaf. A private guard, known as the Black Stone Guard, stands in a high place at the Kaaba to be able to organise the two Taifs around the Kaaba and helps pilgrims to kiss the stone and survey it. The Black Stone guards rotate a number of private security forces to the mosque’s security 24 hours a day. The guard is changed every hour to maintain his level of performance and focus on the site
The Guard Duties includes:
- Safeguarding, security and safety of the two Taifis
- Guide them to the right way to kiss the stone
- Provide access to others and assist them as they arrive in that area
- Communicate to colleagues in the event of fainting, falling or fatigue
