    When Oxymoron was defined it was just for you

I really didn't imagine this was an issue for the Hajj, in fact I recall an interview somewhere with a couple of white American converted Muslim women who attended unaccompanied, wish I could remember the docos name, I'd post a link, hopefully it will come to me or someone else has similar anecdotes?  I find it hard to believe this was always the case in the past in regards to Islam - am I wrong?

I really wonder about the evolution of mankind in this kind of increasingly polarized and discriminatory environment.

If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

ahh humanity at it's finest.
We're *******s deep down aren't we?

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

Let's see here, 1,000 devout Muslim women and none of the Clerics present would offer to "accompany" them? Yet, many will say that Islam treats women well. How ironic.

Another reason why I would stay well away from religion...I could never lower myself to get treated like that by anyone..

No unrelated cleric may act as a 'mahram' for these women :" an unmarriageable kin". Only father, grandfather, father in law, brother, son, nephew, husband....may act as mahram. For strict Wahhabis like SA, women may not travel anywhere, not just for Haj, without a guardian; in other words they are minors, everywhere and permanently!

Thank goodness I am not a Muslim woman. They treat their camels better than their women.

you don't understand .. it's not the " accompany them " is the problem
the women who attend to haj should have male companion whom's is forbidden from her " in sexual way "
a brother,father,uncle, son , nephew . etc
like meryt said .. some people are more strict than others and would not have women traveling anywhere
but to most muslims that's the case in haj only

"why should we not rely on Allah when he guided us our path . we shall certainly bear with patience all the hurt you may cause us. for those who want to put their trust in someone should put their trust in Allah.
