Abeer Mishkhas is very angry about the possible new prayer arrangements for women at the Grand Mosque in Makkah, and I think she has every right to be angry. I was going to put some parts of her column here, but the whole thing is worth reading, so check it out. Hatoon Al-Fassi has written about this, too.

  1. i’m reading this too. i don’t know what to say, coz i don’t understand it quite fully. still, i hope Allah will make easy for women to perform the prayers as men. if easier, alhamdulillah.

    i haven’t made hajj yet. i have the money, still my quota is years away. it’s kinda sad for me to wait,but maybe it’s Allah’s Will. :)

    & maybe the authosities can take into account of Asian women. i’m small compared to Arabs or Caucasians. older women would be more fragile. add with the new environment, visitors might need more help. will we all be affected?

    i hope it’s not too hard. thanks.

  2. Men and women are equal in the eyes of God, no?

    There are more Muslim women than men.

    Reason, therefore, would suggest given men a smaller space in which to perform their prayers and rituals in the Two Holy Places.

    Or maybe it’s just a cultural artifact getting in the way of reason?
