The explorers started showing up in Mina almost immediately Tuesday to participate in one of the last ceremonies of Hajj – the yearly journey to Mecca is a custom for each capable Muslim.

At Mina, Muslims should heave the little rocks and stones they got from Muzdalifah the prior night at a goliath divider, which addresses Satan.

Ordinarily, explorers gather the stones and rocks themselves in Muzdalifah. In any case, as a safeguard measure, they each got a pack of sanitized rocks to guarantee that they don’t come into contact with any contaminations.

Yellow markings were put on the floor encompassing the divider to guarantee that the travelers keep a two-meter separation between each other.

Hajj, which typically invites more than 2.5 million Muslims from around the world, has been pulled back for the second successive year due to the Covid pandemic.

Just 60,000 immunized residents and inhabitants of Saudi Arabia have been permitted to play out the custom.

In 2020, just 10,000 individuals living in the Kingdom were allowed to participate in Hajj.

A day sooner, the travelers advanced toward Mount Arafat for the main piece of the Hajj journey. There, they went through the day imploring on the mountain where the Prophet Muhammad is accepted to have conveyed his last lesson.
