    Haj pilgrims in high spirit for Wuquf

    Four hundred and fifty three local Haj pilgrims are gearing up for the climax of Haj, Wuquf, in the day of Arafah this Friday that promises multiple rewards, followed by the subsequent journey to Muzdalifah for the collection of pebbles and stoning in Mina.

    One million vaccinated pilgrims, including 850,000 from abroad under the age of 65 are allowed at this year’s Haj – the fifth pillar of Islam that all able-bodied Muslims are required to perform at least once – after two years of drastically curtailed numbers due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Worshippers in their ihram (white robes) from across the world have packed the streets of Makkah as Islam’s holiest city prepares to host the biggest Haj pilgrimage since the coronavirus pandemic.
