Who should Administer the Affairs of Hajj?

Editor

Dhu al-Hijjah 02, 14432022-07-01

After two years of restrictions, Muslims were looking forward to performing Hajj but the Saudis have imposed new restrictions especially for pilgrims from North America, Europe and Australia. We have long argued that Hajj administration should be taken out of Saudi control. They are not the owners of Hajj and unfit to run its affairs.

Saudis Impose New Restrictions on Hajj

Zafar Bangash

Dhu al-Hijjah 02, 14432022-07-01

While only a million pilgrims will be allowed to perform Hajj this year—an improvement on the last two years—the Saudis have sourced out the system to a Hindu fascist outfit. It will be a “lottery” system, akin to gambling. This is forbidden in Islam. Saudi policies clearly show they are unfit to administer the affairs of Hajj.

Saudi Regime’s Arbitrary Restrictions on Hajj and Umrah

Zafar Bangash

Rabi' al-Thani 26, 14432021-12-01

Every Saudi policy relating to Hajj or Umrah is not only against the tenets of Islam but also a disaster for the Muslim Ummah. The Saudis’ latest restrictions allowing pilgrims of only 18-60 years age to perform Umrah is completely idiotic.

Hajj under Quarantine

The pandemic has imposed severe restrictions on travel. Hajj, the annual pilgrimage, has also been badly affected. The Saudi occupiers of Arabia have imposed arbitrary restrictions on pilgrims from outside the kingdom while allowing Western concerts and song and dance programs to take place.

Hajj Amid the Pandemic

Editor

Dhu al-Qa'dah 10, 14412020-07-01

The Saudi regime will allow about 1000 people from the kingdom to perform Hajj this year but not Muslims from outside because of the pandemic. Muslims must work to end Bani Saud’s illegal occupation of Makkah and Madinah and challenge their distortion of Hajj rites to please their mushrik masters.

Hajj Affairs

Muharram 02, 14412019-09-01

Calls to boycott Hajj have grown louder in recent years, primarily due to the Saudis’ mismanagement of Hajj and their using the billions of dollars made from exorbitant pilgrimage fees (in contravention of divine and prophetic commands) to kill fellow Muslims — more than 70,000 innocent people in Yemen.

Calls to Boycott Hajj

Editor

Dhu al-Qa'dah 29, 14402019-08-01

Calls to boycott Hajj are getting louder and more widespread. These have to do with the Saudis’ belligerent policies such as in Yemen killing innocent people as well as the Saudis’ terrible conduct at home.

Bani Saud’s control and administration of the Haramayn has raised questions among many thoughtful Muslims. There is growing awareness that the Bani Saud clan is unfit to administer the holy places.

Hajj distortions

Abul Fazal Shaykh

Dhu al-Hijjah 21, 14392018-09-01

Bani Saud are guilty of openly violating Allah’s commands pertaining to Hajj. From imposing visas to charging exorbitant prices and limiting Hajj to a matter of a few days, all these are contrary to Qur’anic teachings and the prophetic Sunnah.

Mahmoud Ali Khan

Dhu al-Hijjah 21, 14392018-09-01

The Saudi officials were rude; there was too much waste of food, especially in hotels where pilgrims from North America and Europe stayed. The Saudis have imposed different tiers of Hajj: five star to basic.

Hajj and crude Bedouin politics

Zafar Bangash

Dhu al-Hijjah 10, 14382017-09-01

When committed Muslims call for implementing the Qur’anic obligation of declaring bara’ah min al mushrikeen (Al-Qur’an - 9:03) at the time of Hajj, the Bani Saud allege this is ‘politicizing’ Hajj. Isn’t preventing hujjaj from countries that the Saudis have conflict with, politicizing Hajj?

Zafar Bangash

Dhu al-Hijjah 10, 14382017-09-01

Hajj is an obligation ordained by Allah (swt) for all Muslims. By imposing visas, quotas and other restrictions, the Bani Saud have usurped Allah’s authority. This is shirk.
