The Imaam said, “Brothers, there is a common mistake [present] wherever we go or stay during Hajj or ’Umrah, I see a widespread mistake made by most of the pilgrims especially the foreigners amongst them or the Bedouins who have not been given understanding or knowledge [of the religion]—they purposefully uncover their shoulder so, unfortunately, you will see them walking like that under the sun, thinking that doing so is a part of the rites of Hajj.

Now straighten your rows and get ready for the prayer …”
