Masjidil Haram – The Sanctuary

It is a place where God has promised everyone peace and equality. The only distinction between men and women is his or her taqwa.

It was pleasing to see the space and freedom of movement that women enjoy in this temple of God. Perhaps this is THE place where women are treated most equally in the context of the Muslim practice of male dominance. Women have their designated area during the obligatory prayers but beyond that the mingling of men and women were unrestricted, orderly and civil.

The perfect place to do Iktikaf, in the company of men, women, jin and angels.
