Al Haramain Watch Condemns the High Cost of Hajj and the Exploitation of Hajj Funds to Finance Wars against Islamic Countries

The International Commission to Watch Saudi Administration of Muslim places “Al Haramain Watch” condemned the high cost of Hajj and Saudi Arabia’s use of Hajj money to finance its wars against Islamic countries. In its statement, the Commission described these Saudi measures as unjust and led to the reluctance of thousands, enabling Muslims around the world to perform the fifth Islamic duty. Earlier this month, the Union of Tunisian Imams called on the Grand Mufti of the Tunisian Republic to disrupt the pilgrimage this year because of the high cost and Saudi Arabia’s exploitation of these funds in financing its wars against Islamic countries.

Al Haramain Watch added that the Saudi Arabian government does not achieve justice and equality among all Muslims. There are thousands of poor Muslims who cannot afford to pay for the high pilgrimage this year. Saudi authorities have increased the price of Hajj visas as 14% last year,with mentioning the high price all services provided to pilgrims this year, such as hotel, transport, visa, etc. The Commission said that one of the goals of Hajj is equality among all human beings, but Saudi Arabia deliberately distinguishes between rich and poor Muslim ordinary Prince and Saudi citizen and citizens of other countries.

Al Haramain Watch said that the Saudi authorities have to reconsider the high fees and taxes imposed on Hajj this year and take into account poor Muslims who are unable to cover the costs of the pilgrimage. The Commission also called for the involvement of Islamic institutions and governments in the management of Hajj because the current Saudi administration failed to manage the Islamic holy sites and achieve justice among Muslims of all nationalities, and use the pilgrimage to achieve economic gains and cover the expenses of their wars of the proceeds of the pilgrimage.
Al Haramain Watch aims to ensure that Saudi Arabia manages the two holy mosques and Islamic sites in a proper manner that preserves the past and the present image of Islam. The commission will apply this aim by advising Riyadh through an Islamic advisory board, engaging Muslim countries in managing the holy rituals, and stopping the obliteration of Islamic identity in Mecca and Medina, which is carried out by Saudi Arabia through the unlimited urban expansion that destroyed many of these sites and eliminated the Islamic presence in them. The commission will also prevent the Saudi Arabia singling out the decision over the holy rituals, which may affect the safety of pilgrims and Umrah. It also aims to prevent the unconvincing closure of rituals such as visiting dignitaries or celebrities or guests of Saudi Arabia. In addition, it will monitor any violation of Saudi Arabia to any pilgrim during his visit to the holy sites. Finally, it will ensure a fair distribution of Hajj and Umrah quotas on Muslim countries without any favouritism or mediation.
The International Commission to Watch Saudi Administration of Muslim places “Al Haramain Watch” is a global organization that monitors the ways and means of Saudi Arabia’s administration of the holy sites in Mecca and Medina, especially the Haramain, including the Islamic historical sites in the Kingdom. The Commission’s work is based on an Islamic reference, and is keen on the interests of Muslims from the ocean to the Gulf and all areas of Islamic presence.
