We completed our Umrah before the afternoon prayer. The Kaaba area was not crowded and we were able to touch the stone where the door parted for the prophet's mother in every round. After we completed Umrah and afternoon prayer we stood in line to kiss the black rock. The line moved at a decent speed. The guards made sure that no one stayed at the rock too long. Plus they moved both the mens and womens line. Just towards the end there were 3 women who cut line.
Overall the religious police was not very agressive. Although they did decide where you sat around the kabba.
Sadly due to the women men seperation, women do not get to pray in the main area around the Kaaba. We are moved into the haram area built around the Kaaba.
