May there be a world in which wisdom and knowledge is widespread and ignorance and unawareness is eradicated. The Hajj, is one of the most important rituals of Muslims. However, the Quran, Muslim’s holy book, has mentioned some conditions for performing it. If any of those conditions is not satisfied, the Hajj is not mandatory and the Muslims person shouldn’t perform the Hajj.

 

717 people died and 863 were injured in a stampede near the holy city of Mecca on Thursday.

One of these pre-conditions of Hajj is: The person should be in a good financial condition meaning that no one in his family or neighborhood should be in financial need. If anyone in the Muslim’s person family or neighborhood is in financial need, he is prohibited to go to Hajj.

Unfortunately, wrong and deceitful mis-advertisings has changed this ritual and has made it an illegal source of income for Saudi Arabia by fooling poor people. This religious abuse has reached to an extent that, the Saudi Arabian government, doesn’t believe that their government is in charge of pilgrims’ security and welfare. Because they’ve understood that even if there is thousands of dead people in the land of revelation of Quran, no one will stop performing the Hajj in their country. We protest against the Saudi Arabian government and religious leaders because of current disasters in the world and ask Muslims around the world to strike against this religious abuse and boycott performing of the non-mandatory Hajj. So we can alleviate ignorance and unawareness in a global movement.
