Statement from the International Quranic Center (IQC): Until When Would the Killing of Pilgrims in God's Holy House in Mecca?

Was published in Arabic in September 24, 2015

Translated by Ahmed Fathy

 

Firstly:

1- Ten days ago, this month, a crane fell in the holy shrine in Mecca, causing the death of hundreds and other hundreds of injured victims. News broke about other hundreds of deaths and injured people in a stampede during the so-called rite of throwing stones. News broke about the  reason of this stampede; the closing of one path leading to the stone-throwing place by Saudi security guards due to the fact that a Saudi prince of the royal family came unannounced to perform this rite. Thousands of pilgrims had to move through other paths that have been overcrowded in their turn. Thus, the inevitable catastrophe occurred. The same happened before in 2005; the stampede at the time occurred due to the presence of a prince with his cortege of several people to perform this rite, leading to one of the worst stampedes ever.     Thus within the same current month, September 2015, thousands of people got killed and injured in Mecca.

2- It became regular and usual; the fall of thousands of victims in the KSA. This catastrophe will reoccur as long as the KSA royal family continues its invasion and occupation of the holy shrine in Mecca, claiming that Mecca is a personal property of the Saudi royal family. They consider pilgrims as preys; once their money enters into coffers of the KSA, their lives no longer count after paying the exorbitant fees of pilgrimage.

3- We have written so many times before calling for the liberation of the holy shrine in Mecca from the Saudi occupation. Mecca should be supervised by an international neutral body to regulate pilgrimage and to protect the holy shrine, the Kaabah, and to ensure it remains open to all peaceful people in accordance with the divine sharia in the Quran: the holy shrine ought to be safe for all people alike.

4- Wahabism has a black bloody history concerning the four holy four months of peace during which pilgrimage can be performed. Bloodshed in these holy months is forbidden; yet, the Wahabi KSA is at war with Yemen, killing so many victims from the innocent peaceful people. This terrible aggression continues in the holy months, as the Wahabi KSA does not acknowledge the sanctity of these holy months. Wahabi terrorist groups outside the KSA, e.g. MB, Salafists, and ISIS, do not acknowledge the sanctity of these holy months; victims of their terrorism continues to fall all year round.

5- Wahabism has a black and bloody history concerning the holy shrine in Mecca. Long painful stories are narrated in this issue. What happened this month is the manifestation of such bloody history. The series of mass killing would continue as the Saudi royal family insists on two lies: 5.1: pilgrimage is one week. This is the first lie; the Quran says that the pilgrimage can be performed during the period of four lunar holy months: Zu Al-Hijja, Muharram, Saffar, and Rabei Awwal. The very first week of Zu Al-Hijja is just the beginning of the pilgrimage season: any peaceful person from anywhere in the world can perform pilgrimage during any day of these fur lunar months of the Islamic calendar. The Quran says: "TheHajj is during specific months. Whoever decides to perform the Hajj-there shall be no sexual relations, nor misconduct, nor quarrelling during the Hajj…."(2:197). We have written a detailed research on that subject of pilgrimage rites. If the pilgrimage would be allowed during the four months as per the Quranic verse, no stampedes of thousands of people would occur again. Confining the pilgrimage to one week is the first lie to be refuted. 5.2: the second lie to be refuted, or rather another myth to be debunked, is the devilish rite of throwing stones. This strange rite is not among the rites of pilgrimage. We have detailed our refutation of this diabolical rite in our book on pilgrimage. This cursed rite is behind the usual annual stampedes and over-crowdedness of pilgrims. 

6- It is quite impossible for the KSA royal family to refute/forsake these two lies; both myths are central part of the Sunnite/Wahabi bunch of lies attributed by false imams to Islam. It is impossible for the Wahabi clergy manipulated by the KSA royal family to forsake these two lies as they are inherited from their forefathers. These two lies cannot be debunked unless we get rid of the terrorist KSA royal family: the axis of evil and terrorism.

7- If no remedy procured, more victims will fall annually: any pilgrim should know s/he might not return home; s/he is just an unknown number among victims as long as the holy shrine in mecca is still occupied by Wahabis. This violates the Quranic verse about the divine command of making the shrine a safe place for all people. As long as the KSA royal family with its Wahabism controls the pilgrimage rites, this family will act as if the shrine were private property of their own.

8- Wahabism causes the mass killing of people in the holy lunar months and all over the world. Bloodshed goes on. Until when would it continue? It ought to be stopped.

Lastly:

1- We still call for the convening of an international Islamic conference to discuss the liberation of the holy shrine in mecca from the Saudi occupation.

2- We call all those who can cooperate with us but they overlook us: the blood of the victims is your responsibility on the same degree as the responsibility of the KSA royal family.
