Comment expliquer la hausse du prix du #hajj, décriée partout dans le monde?
- forte hausse du prix des prestations saoudiennes (en gros Mina-Arafat, tentes, nourriture, etc.)
- ↗️ prix billet d’avions
- ↗️ TVA saoudienne: 5 % -> 15 %
- taux de change défavorable
- ↗️ prix hôtel
L’Arabie saoudite veut reprendre la main sur le #hajj, dans une sorte de nationalisation. A terme, plus aucune agence de voyages dans le monde n’organisera le hajj. Tout sera organisé par les Saoudiens. Centralisation qui touchera aussi les entreprises saoudiennes.
Le marché du #hajj tel qu’on le connaît va disparaître.
En France, il représente 50 à 60 % du chiffre d’affaires des agences les plus anciennes dans le domaine. 100 % pour certaines, plus récentes.
Ça va être un carnage, économiquement parlant.

#Hajj les agences de voyage sont toujours dans le flou. Toujours pas de go de l'Arabie saoudite. Si dans une semaine, pas de nouvelles, le hajj ne pourra pas être organisé. "Impossible", m'indique un professionnel, qui n'écarte pas l'annulation pure et simple du pèlerinage
Il est capital, ajoute ledit professionnel, que les prétendants au #hajj soient extrêmement vigilants : « il faut être hyper attentif à qui proposent de vous emmener au hajj et comment. On ne sait toujours pas aujourd’hui ce qui va se passer. »
Le silence des autorités saoudiennes sème désarroi, colère et inquiétudes aussi au Royaume-Uni.
👇🏽 Mise en garde de @appghajjumrah pour éviter les (très) mauvaises surprises.

🕋 Demain, aura lieu la meilleure journée de toute l'année, la journée de '#Arafat (correspondant au 2ème jour du #Hajj) inchaAllah.

Ce jour est d'une importance telle qu'un minimum de préparation est à prévoir, tel que le jeûne et un maximum d'adorations ⬇️

➖ Demain est l'occasion d'implorer Allah comme nous ne l'avons encore jamais imploré,
L'invoquer, comme jamais encore nous ne l'avons invoqué.⬇️
➡Multiplions les actions de dhikr, la lecture du Qur'ân, les invocations, l'istighfar (demande de pardon) etc.⬇️

Why did the #Mughal Emperors not perform the #Hajj? The simple answer is that the duty of protecting the boundaries of the state, preserving law, order, public safety & rights (Hukukullah) was an absolute obligation (fardh al-ain), hence the Emperors were excused from the Hajj.
“Hajj is not incumbent upon the Sultans; they would rather sit on the throne & perform justice, lest an instigation should arise”.

17th century Fatwa by Ottoman Shaikh ul islam, Es’ad Effendi.
To make up, the Emperors would annually sponsor Hajj voyages & appoint a representative (Amir ul Hajj) to lead the pilgrims, ensure their safety, distribute gifts & charity across the holy cities, & to perform the Hajj on the emperors behalf.

The mini #Hajj 2021 begins today - only 60,000 (Saudi based) pilgrims instead of the normal global gathering. Here's a thread of papers by @HaniNabulsi which examine the crowd psychology of the Hajj in normal times.
1/4
The negative effect of crowd density on reported safety was moderated by social identification with the crowd. Mediation analysis suggested that a reason for these moderation effects was the perception that other crowd members were supportive.

2/4
Shared social identity with the crowd explained more of the variance in cooperation than both location & density. The link between shared social identity & giving support was stronger in the plaza than in the Mosque, with @DrAnneTempleton

Destabilization by #Israel+#SaudiArabia+#UAE in the Middle East is equal to the destabilization by #Iran. Is it?

I listened to @PeterBeinart on @FareedZakaria's show. He used this contrast to justify rejecting the idea of a #JCPOA rethink to include Iran's malign activities. /1
Are #Israel #KSA #UAE destabilizing the Middle East equally to or more than #Iran? This juxtaposition is used by Iran govt and sympathizers who suggest Tehran's wide network of proxies & operations in the region is not unique. Rather, it's normal. /2
Keeping #JCPOA intact is a legitimate goal but not on the basis of a fallacy. Moral and political equivalency that @PeterBeinart suggested [b/w #KSA/#Israel/#UAE and #Iran] is worth discussing. In short bursts, just key points, for the sake of informing. /3

#SaudiArabia #Mecca #Coronavirus #Umrah

Saudi Arabia wants to gradually allow the Muslim Umrah pilgrimage again under strict conditions after a seven-month Corona break.
The second largest pilgrimage after the so-called #Hajj was banned at the end of February due to concerns about the spread of the corona virus. As of Sunday, the small pilgrimage should initially be feasible again for believers who are in the country,
said the Saudi Interior Ministry, as the state news agency SPA reported. The small pilgrimage to the city of Mecca, which is holy for Muslims, is recommended for devout Muslims. In contrast to the great pilgrimage (Hajj), the Umrah can be performed at any time.

Some of the African ancestors of the Gullah Geechees were Muslim. The “ring shout”—a form of religious dance where worshipers turn counterclockwise while singing, clapping, and shuffling their feet—was directly inherited from enslaved Muslim slaves brought to the Sea Islands. Image
Research done by Lorenzo Dow Turner, the father of #Gullah studies, shows the worshipers recreated the circumambulation (the act of moving around a sacred object) or tawaf of #Muslim pilgrims around the Ka ́bah in Mecca. This brings to mind the #hajj, which just ended last week.
