    • Spiritual places outside Mecca

      by mariedgu Online Now Nov 2, 2011 at 11:12 AM

      I was adopted in Australia by a turkish Muslim family. I was 11 years old and they did not change my faith due to legal requirements, although I obviously followed their cultural and religious traditions. They have all travelled to Mecca, I would like to travel there to honor their kindness towards me and their customs and because of my own spiritual beliefs. Is there a way of being part of this incredibly important spiritual journey without being Muslim? Is there a mosque outside of Mecca that would allow respectful western women? I post this with the upmost of respect, so please forgive my ignorance.

    • Walk from Jedda to Mecca al Mukarrama, while is Ihram. Is it doable?

      by nafnaf62 Online Now Oct 18, 2011 at 1:35 AM

      Assalam alaikum,

      First of all, thank you for taking the time and reading my post. May Allah reward you.
      I have a weired desire to walk from Jedda to mecca in the state of Ihram for the sake of Allah during this year's hajj in shaa Allah. I am aware that I don't have to do this, the distance is quite far,and that it's a challenge to walk that distance anywhere let along in Saudia Arabia and in the state of Ihram.
      What I would love to know, jazakum Allah kheir, is: Do the Saudi authorities tolarate hajjis to walk to Mecca al mukarram? or if you've known or heard of people who walked to Mecca al Mukarram during Hajj.

      I would love to add that this is not about money or anything else but it's about a dream I've had for a while:)

      Again Thanks a lot for reading this post and for your answers

      Jazakum Allah kheir

      IA I will be going for Umrah this weekend. I have been informed that I have to go downtown to get a bus to Makkah. How much is the taxi fare from the airport to downtown? Can I get a bus directly from Jeddah Airport and how much will I need to have with me for the travel costs and will it take me direct to the Harem in Makkah? Also for the return journey that same evening - would I be able to take the bus directly back to the airport or to downtown and have to take a taxi to the terminal? Do the buses stop at a certain time in the evening?
