There's a whole history behind that, WTA. There was once a time when Muslims and non-Muslims lived side by side in Makkah. There was a reason non-Muslims were forbidden to enter the city.

Regardless, however, the city can't even handle and accommodate the Muslims who do come. That's with even restrictions on the amount of how many people a country can send to Saudi Arabia. Not all those who want to come can come. The city just can't handle 10 million people at once. Not enough hotels, or transportation, or capacity for prayer, or restaurants, etc..

That's why we're seeing so many projects taking place. The expansion, Abraj Al-Bait, the public transportation for Hajj, the railway system, the Jamarat Bridge, the large amount of hotels being built close to the mosque, etc..

And non-Muslims would come with not so spiritual purposes. They would come to take pictures, use the place as a tourist hot spot, etc.. It would hinder the ability of worshipers to worship comfortably, and it would diminish from the spiritual feel and atmosphere the place has.

And I would walk around eating a pork chop biscuit while taking in the sights.

But that's just how I roll, no offence.

Quite correct, and smart but can y'all imagine the uproar in The Good ole US of A if ANY race or religion tried the same thing ?
