As COVID-19 cases keep on developing internationally while the dangers of Coronavirus increase in public spaces and to nations despite everything exist, Hajj 1441H is chosen to occur this year with a restricted number of pilgrims from all nationalities living in in Saudi Arabia only, who are ready to perform Hajj.

The kingdom has revealed more than 160,000 and in excess of 1,300 deaths from the COVID-19.

The ministry said that the choice to hold the limited pilgrimage was taken to guarantee that the Hajj was securely achieved, while focusing on every single preventative measure to ensure Muslims and stick carefully to the lessons of Islam in protecting our wellbeing and protection.

The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques’ administration is praised to serve a huge number of Hajj and Umrah travelers every year.

Prior, it was announced that the nation was thinking about to drop Hajj because of expanding of coronavirus cases. “The issue has been cautiously reviewed and various situations are being sum up. An official choice will be made in one week,” a senior authority from Saudi Arabia’s Hajj and Umrah service told the Financial Times.

The kingdom had stated that Muslims in March put Hajj preparations on pause and excluded Umrah until further notification.

Saudi Arabia has effectively sorted out Hajj during past waves of viral diseases, for example, Ebola and MERS. Although, the effect of the coronavirus outbreak represents a serious problem to beat.
