In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Any believer who verbally declares the shahaadah and professes belief in Allah Subhanah and His Last Messenger (saws) will be allowed to visit and enter the Sacred House of Allah Subhanah in Makkah al-Mukarramah.
The authorities and custodians who govern the entry to the
Sacred House do not and will not ask every visitor to the Holy Sanctuary to
give an account of their prayers before they are permitted to enter the holy
Respected brother in Islam, if the Shaytaan has inspired one who has professed beleif to neglect the offering of their obligatory prayers.it is possible that if one visits the Sacred House and performs the pilgrimage there, their heart would inspire them towards taubah and repentance unto their Lord, amend their conduct, and follow the Straight Path, Insha Allah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
