     TAWAF IN HOVERBOARD: OPINION

 

I have seen some children in mecca using a hoverboard.And although I have picked this video from social media,it is not surprising to me as I have witnessed many unusual things during tawaf.The above video is  of an unidentified man doing tawaf in a hoverboard,it is a common sight these days to see people walking with a selfie stick and may be in few years it will be a common sight to see people doing tawaf in a hoverboard.

While wheelchairs and other transport methods are allowed during tawaf for those who have a disability or are unable to walk, it is unclear whether hoverboards are permitted. The unusual means of travel has divided public opinion, with some claiming it was inappropriate to use the board at the sacred site.(Read that in the guardian)

Maybe the person had a legitimate reason or may be he just wanted to increase the number of his tawaf,no body knows.It is advised by muslim scholars not to judge this man on the Segway, but in no way could Islamic jurisprudence be used to justify this as normative practice. Indeed, it is very difficult to imagine a case where a person is able to mount and balance on a Segway but cannot walk.

Walking around k’aaba is a type of meditation,a concentration and a connection to Allah.Focussing on keeping balanced in a hoverboard,may take away a major part of concentration.

Although It really doesn’t matter to me  if the other person is doing tawaf in a hoverboard or a cycle.We present ourself in the house of Allah to seek his forgiveness and not to judge others.This video is going viral in social media and some people fear if it is going to be a trend in the next generation.After no one checked the selfie sticks,if we don’t check the segway,I fear if ka’aba may be flooded by whirring Segways.

Do you think the hoverboard is a good use of modern-day technology?  Or is it just taking the easy way out? Tell us in the comment box..

What to do in the best 10 days of Dhul Hijja – A checklist for Non-Hujjaj

Why is the first "10 days of Dhul Hijja "the Best Days of Islamic year Allaah has preferred the first 10 days of dhul hijja over all the other days of the year.This is evident from the following Hadeeths. Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him and his father) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allaah than these ten days." The people asked, "Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah?" He said, "Not even jihaad for the sake of Allaah, except in the case of a man who went out to fight giving himself and his wealth up for the cause, and came back with nothing." (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 2/457). Also (Reported by al-Daarimi, 1/357; its isnaad is hasan as stated in al-Irwaa’, 3/398). Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning)"That they might witness things that ...
