Hajj Stampede: Things You Need To Know by reloboy(m): 5:50pm On Sep 24, 2015
CNN)The Hajj, the annual Muslim pilgrimage, has been beset by disasters since the 1980s, leaving thousands dead and more injured.

This year has been particularly deadly, despite attempts by the government of Saudi Arabia to make the pilgrimage safer for the more than 3 million people who make the journey each year

A stampede at one of the last rituals of the season -- known as the "stoning of Jamarat," which symbolizes "stoning the devil," -- killed more than 700 people and injured hundreds more Thursday
So why incidents like this keep happening at the Hajj?
Here are some things you need to know.


Performing the Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam, and every Muslim who is physically and financially able is required to make the journey to the holy city of Mecca near Saudi Arabia's west coast at least once in their lives.

At 9 a.m today there was a "sudden surge in the crowd" heading toward the Jamarat, resulting in overcrowding, a spokesman for the Saudi civil defense agency said in a statement from the Saudi Press Agency.

"A large number fell," the statement said.

Journalist Khaled Al-Maeena told CNN over the phone from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, that pilgrims rushing to finish could have been the main reason for the stampede: "People like to do the first stoning in the morning," he said.

He added: "People must have fainted because it was very hot and humid down there ... and also there have been many cases of dehydration since yesterday."

The BBC has described it as the riskiest ritual of the Hajj because of the way worshipers jostle, which can knock weaker pilgrims over. The deadliest Hajj stampede killed 1,426 people and the Saudis have spent $1.2 billion on a bridge for pilgrims Although
Losing one's life during the Hajj season is considered by many devout Muslims as an entry to heaven.

I thought they will ask me to say yes to one thing I don't know.

But seriously Nairaland mods are partial. Why would they restrict access to only one group?

Any way, RIP to the dead. But they should make sure they get to paradise if not, you all know that the stoning will not be reversed.

Stoning the devil is a part of the rituals of Hajj, Most people do the stoning with great anger because they see it as the opportunity to get back at the devil. Any opportunity to get back at the devil that. has been mitigating against our progress should be done with everything we have got.

the devil is a liar and a deceit

however occasionally things do go wrong there!!!

History of Satan

Satan was an arch angel
He rebelled against God and he was cast down
Angels are spirits
They don't have a physical body
They are spiritual beings
The devil is an angel and hence a spirit

Therefore you can't stone a spirit with a physical stone


May Allah help us

May the almighty Allah rest those dead in jannatul firdaus


According to Iran they will sue the Saudi monarch as the stampede was caused because the one of the roads was blocked for a royal convoy thereby causing overcrowding.

I have been to Hajj in 2011 the population was higher than this years because the Haram renovation did not start then however not a single casualty or dead at Jamraat, so why will there be a stampede when there is fewer number, obviously there is some error on the part of the organizers.
