The Saudi Authorities do a thorough check of your Iqamas and Passport and If you are a Non Muslim,You will b stopped at the Checkpoints.Are you wondering why are Non Muslim not at all Welcomed to Mecca ?Following points will serve to elucidate the possible reasoning behind such a restriction.

All citizens are not permitted in the cantonment area I am a citizen of India. Yet, I am not permitted to enter certain restricted areas like the cantonment. In every country there are certain areas where a common citizen of that country cannot enter. Only a citizen who is enrolled in the military or those who are connected with the defence of the country are allowed in the cantonment area. Similarly Islam is a Universal Religion for the entire world and for all human beings. The cantonment areas of Islam are the two holy cites of Makkah and Madinah. Here only those who believe in Islam and are involved in the defence of Islam i.e. the Muslims are allowed. It would be illogical for a common citizen to object against the restriction on entering a cantonment area. Similarly it is not appropriate for non-Muslims to object against the restriction on non-Muslims against entering Makkah and Madinah.

If Someone wants to Enter Mecca to See the House of Allah,the Only Condition is that he should Say the Sahada and Become a Muslim and there is no Point in Visiting the House of Allah as a Non Believer because If you Don’t Believe in Allah Why Would you Want to Witness Such a Divine Place?Are you Wondering What is Sahada?

Sahadah is Testimony of Faith that” There is No God but Allah and Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) is his Messenger and Prophet.”

Do You Know that sometimes even Muslims are not allowed to enter Mecca. Moroever ,there are two major events annually – Haj and Ramzan, that draw huge Muslim crowd from around the world pouring into one city of Mecca. It is also evident that the crowd grows every year and Saudi Arab administration has to pull majority of the resources from the country to manage the two events apart from the usual tourists who don’t come to take part in these two. There is even a cap on the number of Muslim visitors each year that are serviced by Saudi Arabian administration which differs from country to country. There are usual stories of mishaps happening despite so much management of the event. Apart from these two main events, there are year long visits by Muslims called as Umrah that maintain a constant flow of Muslims during the so-called ‘Off season’. The sheer magnitude of Muslims visiting resulting in the reasons mentioned above and several other reasons force the Saudi administration to prevent tourists and visitors from visiting Mecca.

Owing to the points mentioned above, it doesn’t make sense to criticize the prohibition to enter the city or giving confusing reasons like ‘Non believers not permitted’ to the question. The problem is completely logical and the solutions obvious.
