For how long will this violation to God’s Sharee’a last?
By Arab Muslim Ahmed Mansour of Ahl al Qur'an
For how long will the Sacred Mosque and the obligatory pilgrimage be held hostage to the Saudis?

In every pilgrimage season, hundreds of cases of death occur due to congestions of millions of pilgrims for one week to perform the pilgrimage (Hajj) ritual. I have written an article confirming what Allah (Glory be to Him) have attested to in Chapter 2 in the Quran –(002.197) (The pilgrimage is (performed in) the well-known months; so whoever determines the performance of the pilgrimage therein, there shall be no intercourse nor fornication nor quarrelling amongst one another; and whatever good you do, Allah knows it; and make provision, for surely the provision is the guarding of oneself, and be careful (of your duty) to Me, O men of understanding
I started that article by saying: You can perform Hajj during 4 months. From the beginning of Zul-Hijja to the end of Rebee’ Al-Awwal (names of lunar months)
Following is the link for the article in Arabic
Before that, an article in English dealing with the same topic
Although this divine Quranic facilitation when performing Hajj, is in most need these days, yet it is impossible for the Saudi state to implement it, by allowing the Hajj to last for 4 months, because Wahhabism is founded on strictness and complication, contrary to Islam founded on facilitation, easiness, moderation and alleviation of constrictions, and because Salafi Wahhabism sanctifies “what our forefathers were doing” and what the ancestors agreed upon. And as long as the forefathers chose to gather all the pilgrims to start the season, in order to protect them from the marauding Nejdees (Inhabitants of Nejd region south of Iraq and Syria) and others, then the status quo should remain. Consequently, if those Nejdi tribes, who used to attack pilgrims’ caravans and commit highway robberies, and kill innocent people, were responsible for hording pilgrims in unified caravans for protection purposes and creating the new title Emir Al-hajj, then the Wahhabi Nejdees of today, are responsible for ripping off millions of pilgrims annually by imposing those high fees under the guise of protection and better accommodations, at the same time they pack millions in one week ,many of whom die suffocating, others trampled under the feet. All that contradicts Islam.
This is not the only violation committed by Wahhabi Saudi Arabia when it comes to Al-hajj.
During the 90’s, I wrote that Al-Hajj is an obligatory ritual open for mankind to perform, and that the Holy Mosque is, like the Holy Months (mentioned in the Quran), for mankind.
