Saudi Arabia turns back 1000 Female Pilgrims

8 posts in this topic

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.

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
