Umrah funny stories of pilgrims in Mecca
A slap made him throw all the pebbles at once
At the age of adolescents, boys feel very shy which make them talk less because of changes in their voice. However, It’s hard to enter adolescence and not feel shy more of the time.
So this is the story of young man who was at adolescents and was too shy even to talk.
It was the afternoon of summer of 2001, super hot weather. 1st day of throwing pebbles at Jamarat (Area where are three columns of the devil). He dashed over to the Great Devil, the largest column of the three and the only one to be stoned today. Each pilgrim casts seven pebbles at it. Usually, men don’t take females with them because of too much crowd, and it’s the right way too. (but nowadays, they made column too wide and had seven floors anyone can easily access and can throw itself, not a big deal. I call it “the devil palace”). So, he took pebbles of his family’s ladies with him and went off with his father and brothers to fulfil this responsibility.
As soon as he reached Jamarat area, he lost in the crowd and was all alone.
Everybody came safely after an hour, but this young lad didn’t come. His family was waiting for him in the car, hoping that he will come safely. As a citizen of Mecca, he knew his way back to the car. But after half an hour when he didn’t reach there his father started worrying if he is safe, and getting angry with other sons for being careless and didn’t go together.
At last, he came but was quiet and didn’t talk to anybody. Father got angry where was he, why he is that late, he didn’t say anything. They went off to their home.
In the evening, as he didn’t tell anybody, his uncle paid a visit to congratulate them for Hajj. He felt something fishy and ask him what happened to you?! Then he told his story to him.
By the time we reach in Jamarat, I lost in the huge crowd; then I thought I should start throwing pebbles one by one. I was very very far from the devil column, was thinking how my stones would reach to it. Anyhow, I said Bismillah Allah Akbar and threw 1st which of course didn’t reach to it, I then threw other 3.
When I threw 4th it hit right the at the back of the head of Indonesian pilgrim which was standing in front of me, he turned around and looked at me angrily. I felt sorry for him; then I threw 5th which also hit him, I got scared now what?! I though now, I should throw with some power so that it will go far. I did same, threw with full energy which hit his back of the head again. He turned around furiously with red eyes and slapped me with more power.
I was shocked and so embarrassed that I could not have more guts to cast rest of the pebbles. I stood there for few minutes thinking what should I do now. I could not change my place because of the rush. So I threw all the pebbles at once and came back.
You didn’t abide by the law, you are arrested
In Mecca, the citizen of Saudi takes some benefit by giving a ride illegally to pilgrims to earn some money.
Saudi Government took action against it and stopped them. They got strict, if they see any guy giving ride in his local car, they will throw him in the jail۔
The Same young man went off to Grand Mosque Al-Haram to pick his cousin who came for Umrah. Both were alone. He called him to come outside as there is no place to stop the car and wait for the car as soon as he reached there so he can sit in the car safely.
By the time, he reached there, his cousin was already outside waiting for him and sat in the car. There was police outside. They saw him. Police said to park the car at the side of the road and come out. He came out; they misunderstood that he gave a ride illegally on a local car. He denied it, but they didn’t listen to him at all and pushed him in his police jeep. His cousin saw all that and got so worried, he didn’t understand the situation he ran to the police to clear the misunderstanding, but he didn’t know Arabic, and police didn’t have time to listen to him as they were so busy controlling others. They didn’t even look at him. Now he was thinking what should he do. He came to the police jeep and opened the door of which police forgot to lock. Police saw that and got furious with him and slapped in front of everyone, and pushed him away from that “how dare you”.
Later on, the guy (which police caught) explained to his cousin address of the home told him to go in the taxi as they won’t leave him. He came the day after, spent a night in the jail.
