One of the objectives of Hajj is to maintain the spirit of brotherhood, mercy, and unity among pilgrims. Harming pilgrims—in any way—is not justified under any pretext. Pilgrims should avoid pushing and harming others when doing Tawaf, or any other rite of Hajj, so that Almighty Allah would accept their Hajj.

Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and an Islamic scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, states: My advice to those who are cherishing the intention of performing Hajj is that they should not do so unless they are mentally and spiritually ready to perform it, for by engaging in acts such as the ones you mentioned, they are invalidating their Hajj. It is necessary that we refrain from all forms of wrangling, quarrelling, obscenities, lewdness and frivolities during Hajj.

Therefore, anyone who is thinking of performing Hajj must attend courses conducted by trained scholars. Such courses will enlighten them about the rites of Hajj as well as its moral and spiritual aspects, while educating them about the appropriate behavior and manners they must have while performing this noble rite.
