Saudi police held pilgrims involved in Makkah fight

Saudi police have held 2 pilgrims for investigation who were involved in a fight in Masjid al-Haram, Makkah.

A video clip has been viral on social media where 2 people can be seen fighting while wearing Ihram in the area between Safa and Marwa mountain.

By the grace of Allah, no injuries were reported and legal action has been taken against the pilgrims who were involved in the fight.

It is important to note that when we enter the state of Ihram, we cannot even pluck our own hair let alone fight with another Muslim. If the fight had resulted in an injury, they would have been required to slaughter a goat in Makkah as compensation.

Is the act justified?

It is our duty to respect the sanctity of the House of Allah. People come to Masjid al-Haram from all over the world to find peace of mind and soul. Exhibiting this kind of behavior cannot be justified whatever the situation is.
