In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Minaa Needs Upgrade for Pilgrims
By Irshad Mahmood – Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre

Time to time we see stampede at Minaa during Hajj, which is an alarm for all of us and if anyone has better suggestion need to come forward and present and forward to Saudi Government to save lives.

Remember: Hajj is fard only ONCE in our lifetime for those who are physically fit (NOT Disabled) as well as financially healthy, and no one should be allowed to go for more than one Hajj, unless he is helping his MAHRAM women to reduce overcrowdings/overloading. One must know his/her Medical/Physical Fitness before going for Hajj to avoid being burden on others. Also they must start daily practice of FAST walking for 5 Kilo Meters for two months immediately after Ramadan before going for Hajj. Many of us might not be able to get another chance to perform it again.

At Hajj you may have to face many challenges, and that could be a test of patience for you, so be patience at all times, (Ref. Al_Quraan_005:002, 094). Remember: Hajj is NOT a Five Star PICNIC.

Ministry of Hajj, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia must re-organize Hajj using modern technologies to give equal opportunity to all Pilgrims (Hajees), since in front of Allah all Pilgrims (Hajees) are equal except those who are better in Taqwa NOT Money. Allah knows their Taqwa from their heart, which you cannot.

There must be allocated time for all Pilgrims to perform Tawaaf of the Kabaa, Saee at Al-Safa & Al-Marwah, and Ramee at the Jamarat etc., to avoid any bad incidents due to overcrowdings/overloading, keeping in mind there will be sick and old people including women and we need to take care of all as much as possible.

Every Pilgrim to Makkah for Hajj MUST have guaranteed equal opportunity to offer at least five times of Salaat with Jamaat behind Imaam Kabaa inside Haram in Makkah.

Every Pilgrim to Makkah for Hajj MUST get guaranteed equal opportunity to stay near Kabaa to offer five times of Salaat with Jamaat behind Imaam Kabaa inside Haram in Makkah first and then move far away from Kabaa to give opportunity to others to have little less rush during this time. Otherwise those who go to Kabaa and sit there for a long time and of course for doing Ibadah but prevents other Pilgrims (Hajees) from doing their Ibadah or making extreme hardship on others, because of occupying all the spaces whenever they want during whole day and night.

In Minaa as well, every Pilgrim to Makkah for Hajj & Umrah MUST have guaranteed equal opportunity to have one common standard of tents for all. No Five Star Tents etc. Number of washrooms must be increased so that people don’t have to lineups for hours. Special cares need to be taken to clean garbage DAILY otherwise there are chances to spread epidemic/pandemic deceases like SARS, BIRD FLUE, EBOLA. Already vast majority of Pilgrims are getting sick every year, which could be due to Great Mess of Garbage piles up at Mina. No one should be allowed to wash cloths there except for emergency. Cloths should be washed later when they go back to their hotels/accommodations etc. Hajj is for Ibadah only, not to waste time and create problems for others. All Pilgrims MUST be well prepared for these days.

All transportations must be provided on equal opportunities to all Pilgrims (Hajees) and it must follow a balanced good standard.

Minaa needs upgrade using modern technologies as one unified accommodation for all Pilgrims for Hajj as well as Umrah, instead of Five Star Hotels & Five Star Picnics. Modern Tents can be of solid bricks for ongoing reusability to reduce pollutions.
