Noor-e-Mujassam, Habeebullah, Huzur Pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam declares that, “La’anat (curses) of ALLAH PAK and of all Malaaika ‘Alaihimus Salam and of all men on that individual who introduces some ‘bid’at’ or anti-Islamic acts in the sacred Herem Shareef; even none of his Far’d or Nawfl Ibadah shall be granted. After fixing thousands of CCTV cameras in the two sacred Masjids on the plea of ‘security’, now even some more number of cameras being installed on the plea of ‘crowd control’. On no grounds like ‘security’, ‘crowd control’ or any other issue, installation of cameras would be permissible in Islam because the very basics of CCTV camera is photos. And photography (Making picture of living beings) is totally harwaam in Shari’ah. The Saudi government is ruining the Hajj of all the Haji of the world by taking pictures by CCTV cameras. It could be mentioned that Saudi government has not been conferred upon any authority of making the harwaam pictures as halal. Therefore, it is Far’d-Wajib for the Saudi government to immediately dismantle all those cameras.
It is true that problems would come up in the course of time but solutions must be taken based on Shari’ah systems. Hajj is a Far’d ‘Ibadah. In performing this Far’d Ibadah, if any harwaam method is adopted, hajj shall not be accepted but will be rejected.”
In Islam, Making picture of living beings is harwaam. There are numerous Hadee’s Shareef in this regard and this is well-known to the so called Saudi mufti. But Saudi wahabi government is nullifying the Hajj by taking pictures of thousands of Muslims through installing harwaam camera systems and engaging the Hajis in harwaam activities. Abandoning these harwaam methods, The Saudi wahabi government must go for the Shari’ah methods.”
