I am grieved to know about the tragic (crane) accident which occured in the Masjid al Haram and resulted in the martyrdom/injuries of many pilgrims. May Allah accept the death of the pilgrims as martyrdom and may give speedy recovery and reward to the injured ones and also help their families to be patient and may Allah bless them all.
I wish to share a hadith relating to death during Hajj:
Whilst a man was standing at ‘Arafah during the Hajj with the Messenger of Allaah , he fell from his mount and broke his neck. The man was in the state of Ihraam, thereupon the Prophet , told his Companions to bury him in his two garments and neither perfume him nor cover his head.
He , said: “He will be resurrected on the Day of Judgment proclaiming Talbiyah.”
(Bukhaari and Muslim)
I request the visitors of this blog to understand that the cirumstances (windstorm, lightening etc.) in which the accident occured are beyond human control therefore do not believe in the conspiracies. The authorities of Masjid al Haram do there best to serve the pilgrims and try to take all the possible safety measures.
(About this blog: This is not an official site of the Masjid Al Haram. I am an ordinary resident who lived in Makkah for more than three years and often used to visit the holy Masjid and update the this blog. Currenty, I am living in Madina al Munawara therefore the blog has not been updated for around one year. )
ربنا افرغ علینا صبرا وتوفنا مسلمین، آمین
