    UNholy people with UNholy intentions going to an equally UNholy place and committed an UNholy crime.
    Should face an UNholy consequences.

    That‘s what you get when somebody is being sponsored with stolen money by the Govt to go on a baseless pilgrimage.

    Usless wasters of our hard earned economic facilities.

      You seems to hate Muslims with passion. In every religion there are good and bad people and this kind of thing cloud happen in any religion. Pls stop the hate lets spread love we can only win people(souls) through love and not through force and hate.

    “Innocent Until Proven Guilty”.

    I know nothing about picking stuff up n the ground in Makkah to be considered theft. But it sound funny to me that someone bends down to pick something is considered stealing?. Looks like this story is incomplete.

    What i do know according to islamic Law, is that, once you put on “Haram” (physically known as white cloth) and ready for hajj rituals, you not supposed to do anything haram(forbidden). You not supposed to kill even a fly even if it bites you. You know supposed to kill snake or anything. If you do, you must fast for a number of prescribed days. If you are unable to fast you must feed the poor or slaughter a sheep. The process is called “fidya”.

    That said, it is haram to steal whether during hajj or not. But this alleged criminal should be given excuses until accurate info is found. He might be picking up something that dropped from him. He might be picking up his/her cell phone. If there seems to be rule regarding not picking up anything from the floor, he/she should have known that bcus prospective Al-haj and Alhaja are tutored before embarking on this spiritual journey.

      Hmmmm, so when you kill a fly, you should slaughter a sleep to appease Allah. Meaning killing another, or is it that the fly’s life is more important than the sheep’s. I take a stroll
