We're back Video highlights return of Hajj to full capacity after COVID-19
Makkah: The video highlights the organization of Hajj for pilgrims from all over the world this year, after being limited to local pilgrims only during the past two years, due to the pandemic, enabling this year the largest number of Muslims around the world to perform Hajj and Umrah, and visiting the Prophet's Mosque in an atmosphere of spirituality and tranquility.
The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah had announced earlier that the number of pilgrims from inside and outside the Kingdom for this year's Hajj season has been increased to 1 million, in accordance with quotas allocated to different countries.
In the video, viewers will see scenes from the previous Hajj seasons comprising a large number of pilgrims assembled at the Grand Mosque, with their hearts full of piety, standing in front of their Lord, and praying in humility, raising their hands to seek forgiveness and mercy of Allah SWT.
The video also showcases the majestic scenes of God’s guests at Jabal Al-Rahma (Mount of Mercy) at Arafat, where their tongues are busy in praising and thanking Allah SWT.
The video also highlights the return of communication between pilgrims, who, coming from different countries have all gathered in one place, as one of the objectives of the pilgrimage is to get to know each other and enhance the bonds of communication and brotherhood among themselves. Such a massive, diverse gathering is unique to Hajj alone and does not take place in any other part of the world.
The video concludes by congratulating the pilgrims on the successful completion of their Hajj and on the occasion of Eid Al-Adha. Having being able to make the journey to the holiest places and performing one of the mandatory five pillars of Islam prescribed by Allah SWT, is an opportunity for them to thank the Almighty for choosing them for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
