In sha ALLAH, GOD willing I will be performing my small haj (umrah) next week.

The new Saudi ambassador to Malaysia has laid down a new ruling with regards to ladies below 45.  A new restriction. Unmarried or married must be accompanied by their mahram and must be from the father’s side,  Some of these travel agents, dont want to lose their commission, go to great lengths to FORGE the marriage cert etc to submit for the visa approval.  OMG , you are going to a holy place and lie and cheat to get your clients documents be approved for the visit. And they want to take the embassy for a ride!! Lo an behold, they require that the ORIGINAL be submitted.  These tactics are causing the genuine jemaah to lose out because the visas are suspended due to a few greedy sheks.  Im lost for words at the things people ( so called alim) do , does the end justifies the means??
The travel agent also lose out because delays in approval of the visas causes flights postphoned, seats in the airplane chartered would be wasted, re-booking of flights etc etc.
Well I just hope and pray mine will go on smoothly as planned. in sha allah..
