He is suggesting that Mina be expanded!

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it possible to expand Mina, so that it will be big enough for all the pilgrims? Because many pilgrims cannot find any space in Mina.

Praise be to Allaah.

The places and times of Hajj are clearly defined by the Lawgiver and there is no room for ijtihaad. The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) did the Farewell Pilgrimage in which he said: “Learn from me your rituals of Hajj, for perhaps I may not meet you again after this year.” And he explained in it the times and places. 

The boundaries of Mina are: Waadi Muhassir as far as Jamrat al-‘Aqabah. So the person who does Hajj must look for a place that is within the boundaries of Mina; if he cannot get a spot, he may stay in the nearest place to Mina, and there is no penalty on him. 

And Allah is the source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
