The cleaner was again seen and this time he was busy cleaning the floor when asked about why he did not kill the insect he replied that there are two types of insects seen at the Masjid Al-Haram, one which is harmful to Human Beings like the snakes, scorpions, and centipede.

The cleaners are instructed to kill them as they might harm the pilgrims. There are another set of Insects which do not harm the Human Beings, The one who is wearing Ihram is not allowed to kill insects as it is haram for them to do so.

As per the scholars, one should not kill the insects that do not harm others. The cleaner said that though they are not wearing Ihram they do not kill insects to respect the place.

As per the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) (P.B.U.H), some snakes are Jinns. And they don’t want to kill any insect which is not an insect. He further says that Masjid Al-Haram is a place of worship for everyone, it is not limited to only Human Beings.

 All the creatures are created by Allah and we cannot kill any creature that was a guest of Allah and one cannot know the reason why these creatures come here.

The person who questioned the cleaner was really impressed by the way the cleaner is performing his duties. In the outer world, people are killed as insects but here these creatures are protected. People must learn from these workers.
