View Full Version : The Mosque of Prohibition

We notice in the Holy Qu'ran that Allah calls the great mosque of Makkah "Masjid-il-Haram," the Mosque of prohibition".
Also the dress worn by the pilgrims in the enclosure of this mosque is called "Ihraam" which means "the forbidden" and that the one who is in the state of ihraam is thus called the "Muhrim" which means "the one who is under prohibition"
The reasons for all these similar names which are derived from the same significance are very simple regarding the great mosque of Makkah Shareef; before the arrival of islam on this ground the place was infested by idols, everywhere and the idolators were in total perdition compared to the unicity of Allah Ta'ala. Islam came to cut down the idolatry thus cleaning the sacred mosque.
As for the dress, those who bear it during pilgrimage are under total interdiction of sin, even about actions which in normal time would be allowed to him such as for example making a cajolery with one's wife or husband, under the state of Ihraam, the muhrim stay under prohibition.
