A Bride was denied entry to Masjid al-Haram

A woman of Arab descent was stopped by the security forces to enter Masjid al-Haram in Makkah for wearing a wedding dress.

The security forces then proceeded to explain to the newly married couple that Muslim women were not allowed into the Grand Mosque in a wedding dress as it is a highly spiritual place and its sanctity must be respected always under any circumstances.

The bride was then provided with an appropriate veil that covered her from head to toe. Once she had worn that, the bride and groom were allowed to enter Masjid al-Haram.

Several people commented that everybody including the newly married couple should be respectful of any rules, regulations, and dress codes that have been put in place to uphold the sanctity of the Grand Mosque and the Holy Kaaba, the center point of the entire Islamic world.

Though this might seem surprising and shocking to most of the readers, this is oddly not the first time that the security personnel and guards at the Grand Mosque had to deal with people. Recommended: A cyclist was stopped from Entering Masjid al-Haram
