Annual Hajj is observed in Holy Kaaba with proper social distancing!
The annual Hajj pilgrimage is observed and has brought 2 million Muslims to Mecca. However, this year’s Hajj is strictly being performed under the COVID-19 pandemic, with proper social distancing measures in place.
This year the Saudi government has allowed fewer people to perform Hajj that just consists of 1,000 pilgrims and only Saudi Arabia residents were given the clearance. No international visitor was allowed. This year’s Hajj was been observed under strict health care guidance and proper social distancing to keep the pilgrims safe and protected.
Zam Zam water will be consumed from a single used bottle and even face masks are mandatory to wear continuously. No walking closely while circling the Kaaba and the distance between person to person should be at least 1.5 meters of space.
Moreover, the pebbles to throw at the devil were also being sterilized for the pilgrim’s safety. Looking at the amazing arrangements that are being made keeping in mind the COVID-19 pandemic, people are in awe and Hajj 2020 is surely different from its previous years but it gives us the same message to be strong and stay calm in these testing times that have enveloped the whole world.
