Saudi Arabia: Hajj pilgrims to perform downsized pilgrimage amid COVID19

Marking the beginning of a five-day pilgrimage, Hajj pilgrims converged at Mina on Wednesday. After offering pre-dawn prayers, they will proceed to the plains of Arafat on Thursday for the main ritual of Hajj -reciting prayers. They will  spend the day there praying and asking for God’s forgiveness.

The pilgrims will listen to the Khutba-e-Hajj or Hajj Sermon at Nimra mosque and offer mid-day and afternoon prayers together before leaving for Muzdalifah in the evening on Thursday. The pilgrims will return to Mina Friday morning for the ritual of animal sacrifice and symbolic stoning of the devil. Around 2.5 million pilgrims including record two lakh from India performed Hajj last year.
