  1. There are numerous stories of non Muslims visiting Mecca in the past, including the Kaaba, such as Sri Guru Nanak. Another famous incident of a non-Muslim visiting Mecca was the visit by the British explorer Sir Richard Burton in 1853.

    Non Muslims are not allowed only in Mecca, Medina even if they hold valid Visa Or residency permit.

    Quran says: “Oh you who believe! Truly the idolaters are unclean; so let them not, after this year, approach the Sacred Mosque….” (Quran – 9:28) Mosques or holy places in other religions as well as places reserved for meditation usually have basic requirements for entry – cleanliness and purity. Prayer is a form of meditation and meditation requires cleanliness.

    Mecca and Madinah are cities of great importance in Islamic tradition – centers of pilgrimage and prayer, sacred places where Muslims are free from the distractions of daily life. Restricting access to these holy cities is intended to provide a place of peace and refuge for Muslim believers and preserve the sanctity of the holy cities. At this time, millions of Muslims visit the cities each year, and additional tourist traffic would simply add to the congestion and detract from the spirituality of the pilgrimage visit.

    Non-Muslims found in either of the two holy cities definitely get in trouble. They can be deported; they can be put in jail for a while
