1-6-31 Yahoo - Muhammad - Two Cities - Murder Jews And Non-Muslims

DanielofD Danielof... Member since: June 13, 2006 Resolved Question

Can Non Muslims visit Mecca and Medina? If not, why?

Muslims are not prohibited from visiting other religions holy sites..St Peter's, Rome, Jerusalem, and others. 6 years ago

Additional Details

Also, lets not start resorting to 'Allah, or God' decreed it. That is nonsensical. It would almost be like saying those poor French Citizens were shot in a prohibited zone because they were breaking God's law. If you believe THAT then I guess our deities are quite different. If that were the case then Non Muslims would be prohibited from visiting the 'Dome of the Rock'. 6 years ago

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker

Of course they are prohibited. It was the Prophet Mohammed himself who attempted to negate the positive image of the Jew that had been prevalent earlier. According to historian Bernard Lewis, the Prophet Mohammed's original plan had been to induce the Jews to adopt Islam; when Mohammed began his rule at Medina in AD 622 he counted few supporters, so he adopted several Jewish practices-including daily prayer facing toward Jerusalem and the fast of Yom Kippur-in the hope of wooing the Jews. But the Jewish community rejected the Prophet Mohammed's religion, preferring to adhere to its own beliefs, whereupon Mohammed subsequently substituted Mecca for Jerusalem, and dropped many of the Jewish practices.

Jews faced the danger of incurring the wrath of a Muslim, in which case the Muslim could charge, however falsely, that the Jew had cursed Islam, an accusation against which the Jew could not defend himself. Islamic religious law decreed that, although murder of one Muslim by another Muslim was punishable by death, a Muslim who murdered a non-Muslim was given not the death penalty, but only the obligation to pay "blood money" to the family of the slain infidel. Even this punishment was unlikely, however, because the law held the testimony of a Jew or a Christian invalid against a Muslim, and the penalty could only be exacted under improbable conditions--when two Muslims were willing to testify against a brother Muslim for the sake of an infidel.

    Apparently, Saudi Arabia (where Mecca and Medina are,) prohibits non-Muslims from visiting sites that are for religious faith. Although Muslims are not prohibited from visiting Christian sites, it depends on the law of the country in which the religious-or non-religious- sites are in, and they (the gov. for a specific country,) decide.
