Good News ! for Women Pilgrims

If You remember my post on Black Stone ,I wrote about its history and its significance in the life of Muslims. Touching the black stone is a Part of Hajj and Umrah ritual . But sadly because of the huge rush many women miss the chance to touch Hajr e Aswad . The area is mostly flogged by men and women prefer to kiss it by waving her hand in order to avoid the  push of Men  because of the huge crowd.

Thankfully the Shaura Council is thinking over this matter.The Committee for Islamic Affairs in Saudi Arabia’s Shoura council is currently studying a proposal presented by one of its members for allocating specific women-only timings for kissing the Black Stone ritual during Hajj and Umrah proceedings.

The proposal put forth by Modhi Aldeghaither includes setting three specific times during the day for a period of two hours each to allow women a chance to kiss the Black Stone during rounding of the Kaaba.

The proposal is expected to undergo a vote within the committee in prior to further discussions among the Shoura Council, according to Saudi daily newspaper Okaz.

We pray that this Proposal gets accepted  and Women get a space to be near to Hajre Aswad and touch it eventually!
