1,000 pilgrims arrive in Mina to perform hajj

About 1,000 pilgrims arrived on the Mina Valley outside Makkah on Wednesday to participate in this year’s hajj amid the coronavirus pandemic.

This time, the Saudi government has imposed restrictions to curb the spread of the virus which brought the global economy to its knees and force closure of businesses and places of worships across the world.

Hajj rituals begin with the Day of Tarwiyah (fetching water) and there are no major rituals, so the pilgrims will spend their time praying and reflecting until sunrise on Thursday, reports Arab News.
