SAUDI HAJJ AUTHORITIES AGAINST NIGERIA MAHRAMLESS FEMALE HAJJ PILGRIMS; LOOK CLOSER, THINK DEEPER
SAUDI HAJJ AUTHORITIES AGAINST NIGERIA MAHRAMLESS FEMALE HAJJ PILGRIMS; LOOK CLOSER, THINK DEEPER :)
The case of the Nigerian intending female Hajj 2012 returnees is a very important lesson for us all, most especially for those who are endowed with the ability to deeply reflect.
They went to perform hajj, one of the 5 Pillars of Islam, but were ill-prepared as they were found lacking in some vital requirements for entry to the land where the religious rites are performed and so were returned to their country to make amends and possibly return at another date. A second chance is clearly given. 'Hayatad dunya...', right? What graciousness on the part of Allaah SWT.
Can any one please imagine if these young women had been transported to Barzakh (the intermediate realm between this life and the Hereafter), with the usual One Way Ticket (No Return) via Deathview Airline Flight 101 piloted by Captain Azrafil (Angel of Death). Do you think these poor souls would be allowed to return and make good their requirements and then fly back for a second chance? NEVER!
Thus Allaah SWT Makes His Case against mankind via similitudes, but only those who are wise and posses the ability to reflect can see beyond the earthly example and it's attending consequences.
A Saudi Hajj Authority against Nigerian Female (Non-Mahram) Pilgrims, that's all there is to it, most of us might think. But, look closer and think further and deeper..... There's more to it than meets our bruised ego.
May we be among those who will prepare well for that one way trip (death) and get to successfully make it through the first time (Jannah), and not among those who will forget their one chance opportunity (this life) to prepare their entry, only to find tbemselves in an unfortunate situation where there will be no second chance to come back, that Nigerian 'mahram'less female hajj pilgrims have had, in this situation and are feeling disgraced about.
