Bachtan

Bachtan in the mythology of the Arabs, is the stone on which Hagar is said to have been delivered of Ishmael, the son of Abraham, and to which Abraham tied his camel when he went to offer Isaac. The Arabians, who consider themselves direct descendants of Abraham through Ishmael; worship this stone as the same with that in the Kaaba at Mecca.
