The Makkah region governorate spokesperson Sultan Al Dosari said that on Friday evening a car hit one of the entrance gate at the Grand Mosque.
Visitors from abroad will be permitted from November 1, when capacity will be raised to 20,000 pilgrims, with 60,000 people allowed into the mosque.
The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah, in cooperation with the concerned authorities, received after midnight, the first vanguard of Umrah performers from inside the Kingdom.
The card is used to serve pilgrims throughout their journey.
The Hajj is an annual Islamic pilgrimage to Makkah, Saudi Arabia. Hajj is a mandatory religious duty for Muslims that must be carried out at least once in their lifetime as this year around 60,000 coronavirus vaccinated residents perform Hajj under the government’s directions for COVID-19 precautions.
The kind and humane deed won the hearts of millions of people around the world, who showered blessings upon the young volunteer.
The religious rites will begin on Sunday. Only 60,000 fully vaccinated Saudi citizens and residents from more than 558,000 applicants have been chosen for the downsized pilgrimage.
Saudi Arabia will enforce a 24-hour curfew across the kingdom during a 5-day holiday to celebrate Eid Al Fitr which marks the end of the Holy Month of Ramadan, the interior ministry said in a statement on Tuesday, to stem the spread of coronavirus.
Thanks to her smartphone, and the 5G towers that loom over the Holy City, the Indonesian housewife is sharing every step of the pilgrimage with her husband and three daughters back home in the Saudi coastal city of Khobar.
