Saudi Arabia Put Selfie Ban in Masjid Al Haram and Masjid Al Nabawiby Ady Grewal Content writer
You will have noticed that people, who go to Saudi Arabia for performing Hajj and Umrah, focus more on selfies rather than on the purpose for which they have gone there. Every second that you will be spending on that holy place will be very precious for you. Just remember that you will be better than many Muslims who never get a chance to visit those places. Hence, it is better not to waste that time in such useless things but you should focus on The Pilgrimage and on the supplications.
For your information, Saudi Arabia has put a ban on selfies in Masjid Al Nabawi and Masjid Al Haram. People are no more allowed to take selfies in these two Holy sites of Saudi Arabia.
Reasons for selfie ban:
People were very curious you know why Saudi Arabia has put this ban! It seems to be a very common thing but there were certain reasons behind it. Let's have a look at the reasons for the ban on selfie in Masjid Al Nabawi and Masjid Al Haram:
Selfie of Ben Tzion:
Russian Born Jew, named, Ben Tzion that holy place and he had taken a selfie in front of the Holy Kaaba. He was a non-Muslim and according to the Saudi Arab government, non-Muslims are not allowed to enter those holy places. This selfie was creating a lot of controversies and it was raising questions on Saudi government that how a non-Muslim can enter those holy places! It was actually raising questions on the security of Saudi Arabia. That's why the Saudi government decided to put a ban on the selfies in Masjid Al Nabawi and Masjid Al Haram.
Selfies cause disturbance:
Another important reason for the ban is that selfies cause a big disturbance for the fellow worshippers. In the background of people, if most of them would get busy taking selfies then definitely there will be a lot of disturbance. Moreover, making snap chats in taking selfies in those holy places was losing the real essence of Hajj and Umrah.
Because of these two important reasons, the selfie in those holy places of Muslims has now been banned. I am also in favor that it should not be allowed. You can see every part of those holy places over the internet then why there is a need for spending the time taking photos! Besides this restriction, there are many Muslims who still don't follow the rule and they take selfies and snapshots in masjid e Nabvi, masjid al-haram, and even other religious places but it is illegal to do something against the rules decided by the Government of Saudia.
