Hajj Pilgrimage Kicks Off In Saudi Arabia

Have you read Trendiee Today? Saudi authorities say hosting and organising the haj is a sacred duty.

While Thursday is the Arafat Day, the peak of the Hajj rite in Saudi Arabia, other Muslims across the world would observe Eid-Kabir Celebration on Friday September 1, 2017.

Mohammad Hery Saripudin, Indonesia's Consul General in Jeddah, last week said that Mariah was in good health and that she would be able to perform the rituals.

"Given the current situation, [the ministry] remains concerned and fearful for Qatari pilgrims and a repeat of the harassment of Qatari citizens in June", read the statement.

"I'm so happy to be a part of it this year", said 43-year-old Nigerian Mohammed Said, in the seamless two-piece white garment or "ihram" worn by male pilgrims.

This has also had a knock-on effect on hajj-related travel, although Riyadh announced it was relaxing certain restrictions for pilgrims. It is only upon producing the proof of vaccination that one is issued a Hajj visa.

According to officials of Pakistani ministry of Religious Affairs, the Pakistani pilgrims were satisfied with the Hajj arrangements.

The Ministry, in a statement sent here said these centres were equipped with emergency teams and medicines, as well as supported by some 300 ambulances, 30 motorbike ambulances, eight air ambulances and 113 ambulance centres.

The country said more than 1,00,000 security personnel at various spots around Makkah and Madina to protect pilgrims.

The world's largest annual gathering of Muslims has in the past seen numerous deadly stampedes, fires and riots, with authorities having only limited ability to control the masses.

Dr Yaacob, who is also Minister for Communications and Information, is leading the Singapore delegation, as a gesture of the Singapore Government's appreciation to Saudi Arabia for Singapore's revised haj quota, and as commemoration of 40 years of bilateral ties.

"The pilgrim has to run, move, and perform several stages" of the ritual.
