The posting of this article does not mean the author of this web site agrees with everything written.
Samir Ahmad and his wife Shadia Ahmad arrived at Jeddah international airport after very long trip from Canada to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The first thing that caught their attention was the masses of passengers. Over two million Muslims from all over the word arrive every year in Saudi Arabia to perform the Hajj rituals. It was impossible for the person to move one step in that crowded arrival hall without touching or being touched by a stranger. Even as a woman Shadia could not prevent the male passengers from touching her body and violating her privacy. Many times, she felt the hands of male passengers purposely touching her chest, backside, and the area around her privates. The only thing she could do was to keep pushing away those male hands and protect her body as much as she could. Sometimes, she felt a male pushing himself on her backside until she could feel his male organ rubbing itself on her body. To stop herself from being touched in that improper manner she requested her husband to protect her back. However, whenever her husband walked behind her she exposed her body from front and male hands would keep touching and feeling her breasts. Finally, she concluded that she could do nothing to stop those evil men from forcing themselves on her body. It took them a couple of hours to emerge out of that sea of passengers and climb into a crowded bus. Fortunately, in the bus Shadia found a seat and sat between two women. As soon as she sat she felt her cloths from behind became wet. She put her hand and felt the liquid that was smearing her hajab. She was shocked when she found a man’s semen on her cloths.
The bus took them to the place where the rituals of the Islamic Hajj would begin on the same day of their arrival. As soon as they emerged out of the bus they found themselves in more crowded place than the arrival hall at the airport. They could hardly move one step without pushing and forcing themselves through the masses of the pilgrims. There were no separated places for men and women. Males and females were mixing freely and there were no restrictions for their movements. Even the washrooms were meant for both sexes. Every woman was wearing hajab and her face and hands were exposed. In fact women were not allowed to do the Hajj rituals while their faces were covered by niqabs. Men were hardly covering their bodies. Their upper parts were exposed and they were wearing white clothes known as Ihrams. The male pilgrims were not allowed to wear any underwear. Shadia was shocked when she saw men were dressed up in those semi-naked garments.
Once again Shadia found herself facing those annoying sexual harassments by the male pilgrims. However, this time the harassments were more serious than before. Shadia regretted that she came to that country. While she was in Canada she heard many things about the segregation of males and fameless in Saudi Arabia. However, her first day in the holy land of the Muslims refuted those claims. While she was studying about the Hajj she learned that it was a pagan religious practice and the Arab pagans practiced it hundreds of years before the coming of Islam. It had nothing to do with Judaism and Christianity. It was called Hak (rubbing of the body). Pagan women used to rub their bodies on the Ka’bah and apply their menses blood on the Black Stone to increase their fertility. Men used to do the rituals while they were bare-naked. Islam incorporated the pagan rituals of the Hajj with slight changes. However, the Hajj was a kind of temple prostitution. Women offered themselves to men as part of their pagan worship of their many idols – male gods and female goddesses. The Black Stone was considered the corner stone of that immoral temple’s prostitutes. Although, Islam removed the idols from the pagan temple still the Black Stone was spared and the immoral mixing between men and women remained the same.
An Egyptian scholar said that the Black Stone was in a shape of a woman’s vagina. In those days the pagans worshipped the private parts of the female and that why women used to apply the blood of their menses on the vagina-like stone. Today a Muslim female might not be able to reach the stone due to the crowd but she was required to point her right hand from far towards it. However, the Muslim man had to kiss the Black Stone at least once during his seven circling around the Ka’bah. The kissing of the stone had no spiritual significance but Muslim men do it because the prophet Muhammad used to kiss it whenever he performed his Hajj. The second caliph Umar Ibn Al-Khattab said while he was kissing the Black Stone, “I know you are just stone and can do no good or bad to me but I am kissing you because I saw the messenger of Allah kissing you”. Umar might not know why the prophet Muhammad had kissed the stone but for the pagans the kissing of the Black Stone was a form of worshiping the woman’s vagina. Muslim men today are continuing that pagan worship of the female private organ. The Hajj rituals began with the Ka’bah but continued in other places. Each pilgrim male/female walks counter-clockwise seven times about the Ka’bah, the cube-shaped building which acts as the Muslim direction of prayer, runs back and forth between the hills of Al-Safa and Al-Marwah, drinks from the Zamzam Well, goes to the plains of Mount Arafat to stand in vigil, and throws stones in a ritual Stoning of the Devil, symbolizing stoning Satan. Those rituals had to be completed in five days – starting on the 8th and ending on the 12th day of the lunar month of Dhul- Hijjah (i.e. The Month of Hajj).
During those five days Shadia went through so many sexual harassments. She was touched and fondled by at least hundred men. She could not believe that those Muslim men came over there to perform a religious obligation. Young women were not so many over the place and hence she became a target of physical harassment everywhere she went. She and her husband quarrelled many times with those evil males who made her the object of their sexual fantasy. Those who could not reach her physically kept staring at her as if she was walking bare naked in that crowded place. Therefore, Shadia had to endure a lot during those five days of performing those satanic rituals. Unfortunately, what she came to see and study she was not able to find or learn. She came to see how Saudi women were treated in that male dominated country. However, what she saw and experienced was more than what a person could expect to see in a bar or nightclub.
While the pilgrims were encircling the Ka’bah Shadia and her husband felt great heaviness in their chests and almost suffocated from the demonic presence of the unseeing evil forces. No one could convince them that that heaviness was not due to the satanic forces that controlling the hearts and minds of those pilgrims. Every place they went and during every ritual they witnessed that heaviness continued in their hearts. When the pilgrims went to stone the devil Shadia had unbearable headache. She was compelled to ask her husband to lay his hand on her head and pray for her relief from that heavy panging inside her head. On that day Shadia thought the devil would kill her for daring to step in his territory. Sami too fell sick and began to experience nausea. It was nothing short of a miracle when those five days passed without any of the couple being suffocated to death during those unholy and satanic rituals of the pagan Hajj.     
In spite of the uncountable problems that Shadia experienced during those five hellish days still she was able to talk to so many Muslim women from various countries. She pretended that she was a new convert to Islam and she was working on an academic research in which she wanted to answer the critique of non-Muslims in the West. She prepared a set of questions that she asked to every Muslim woman she talked to. To her amazement almost all the Muslim women she interviewed gave similar answers to her questions. All of them denied that they were abused by their fathers when they were living under their authorities or by their husbands after they got married to them and that Islam honoured the women. Inass discussed with them some anti-feminine practices such as polygamy, child-marriage, female genital mutilation, liability of the wife to be divorced and her inability to divorce her husband, custody of children after divorce goes to the father, inability of some women to study or work, and wife-beating. The women collectively told Inaas that they do not see anything wrong with those practices as long as they are justified by the Qur’an and the Sunna of the prophet Muhammad.
Not every place in Saudi Arabia is considered to be the Muslim holy land. Makkah, Medina, and other same towns are called Arad al-Hijaz (i.e. the land of Hajj). Non-Muslim foreigners were allowed to visit any city in the kingdom except that land of Hajj. If a non-Muslim is caught in that forbidden area he would be executed by the authority. Muslims believed that if non-Muslim known as infidel pretends to be a Muslim and goes inside that holy land he would be exposed by Allah. There were stories told by Muslims all over the Muslim countries of infidels who pretended to be Muslims and went near the house of Allah (i.e. Ka’bah). As soon as they stepped inside that holy ground they began to shake, scream, and fell down on the ground and rolled around like epileptic people. Then, those people were arrested and interrogated. They admitted that they were not Muslims but pretenders. Shortly, after their confessions some of them got stoned to death and others beheaded. Another story attached to the house of Allah was that the first man who landed on the moon heard the call for prayer that shouted five times in the day from the mosque of the Ka’bah. Millions of Muslims believed such a false claim of the Muezzin’s voice being heard in the moon
As this testimony is a very specific testimony which I would be unable to take further, any questions in this respect should be posted to the author of the article Dr Thomas Ahmad at http://muslimsliberationmovement.webs.com/contactme.htm or
