Can a non-Muslim visit Mecca?



In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful




Imam an-Nasafi explains that the view of the Hanafi jurists is that non-Muslims are not allowed to perform hajj and umrah, however, it is allowed for them to enter Makkah Mukarramah and the Masjid al-Haram. 1
