In a touching scene, a young man was seen performing Umrah with his father on his shoulders around the Holy Kaaba.

The video has been doing the rounds on social media.

It is not known when the video was recorded, but it appears to be in the afternoon.

The video shows the man doing the 'Tawaf' or circumambulation of the Kaaba slowly with his feeble father on his shoulders.

Social media users have praised the man’s grit to move ahead with the rituals.

One user wrote, “This man is a true example of Islamic values.”

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia said it would permit one million Muslims from inside and outside the country to participate in this year's Hajj, a sharp increase after pandemic restrictions forced two years of drastically pared-down pilgrimages.

The move, while falling short of reinstating normal Hajj conditions, offered hopeful news for many Muslims outside the kingdom who have been barred from making the trip since 2019.  

One of the five pillars of Islam, the Hajj must be undertaken by all Muslims who have the means at least once in their lives. Usually one of the world's largest religious gatherings, about 2.5 million people took part in 2019.
