scary stuff..sound like sheeple going to the slaughter house..

you would think if alah was so good he would have saved all those sheeples from being trampled..

or you would think all the sheeples doing the trampling, would help their fellow worshipers. but no worshiping is more important than saving a few fellow sheeples.

it's a plague spreading over earth.

There is one interesting construction project taking place at this site. Here's a link. To see a rendering look at post #3465. It's a massive building called Abraj Al Bait that is well under way that will be 1,950 feet tall:
It's a very impressive looking building. It's being built right next to the holy site.

what do you said it Back for many reasons

Pilgrims irregular ......

Not this concept .......3 million pilgrims gather in one place

self-evident ...In any place where these massive crowd


but This year 2009 There were successful strategies to reduce congestion in the Hajj


This year there are no such problems ...

Succeeded pilgrims to perform Hajj and returned safely to their country


Praise be to God ....
