The Association of British Hujjaj (Pilgrims) UK (ABH), a National Hajj & Umrah specific organisation working for the welfare and well-being of pilgrims has condemned in the strongest words the growing culture of disregard for the sanctity of the House of Allah and the Rawda Al Sharifa of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) by some naive pilgrims. It is immensely disturbing that these pilgrims, in Al-Haramain Al-Shareefain, are busy with their cameras flashing lights while taking or posing for photographs as well as in making videos and using their mobile phones rather than concentrating on their prayers. They are showing total disrespect to the Haram-e-Makkah and Medina of the Prophet (Peace be upon him).
This nuisance specifically in the vicinity of the House of Allah and the Rawda Al Sharifa of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) has taken away the peace and serenity of Al-Haramain Al-Shareefain and the essence of the pilgrimage and is causing extreme discomfort and disturbance to other pilgrims.
Association of British Hujjaj (Pilgrims) UK strongly urges the relevant authorities in Saudi Arabia that naïve pilgrims must not be allowed to violate the sanctity of Harmain Al Sharifain in order to ensure that the other pilgrims perform their prayers in peace and tranquillity.
