With the current year’s Muslim journey restricted to 60,000 inoculated residents and occupants of Saudi Arabia, Al Jazeera gathers together the Muslim yearly journey.
The Muslim yearly journey known as the Hajj will begin on July 18 with Eid al-Adha being commended on July 20, as per Saudi Arabia’s Supreme Court.
The Hajj is one of the five mainstays of Islam and a unique obligation for all physically fit Muslims to perform in the event that they can manage the cost of it. Before the pandemic, some 2.5 million pioneers would slip on Mecca for the five-day long Hajj.
Due to the Covid pandemic, no unfamiliar travelers will be permitted to play out the Hajj indeed this year after Saudi Arabia limited the yearly journey to a limit of 60,000 inoculated residents and occupants between the ages of 18 and 65. In 2020, simply up to 10,000 Saudi residents and inhabitants were allowed to play out the yearly journey.
Hajj begins on July 18
Hajj falls on the eighth of Dhul al-Hijjah, the twelfth and last month in the Islamic lunar schedule which shifts 10-12 days sooner every year. This implies that the in the future Hajj will begin after July 18 will be in the year 2054 – a long time from now.
Mecca is known for its warm desert environment with temperatures consistently surpassing 42C (107F) in the mid year months. It will be basically an additional 10 years until the normal high temperatures will be beneath 38C (100F).
Eid starts July 20
Eid al-Adha or the Feast of Sacrifice, is commended on the third day of Hajj and goes on for three days. This year Muslims worldwide will observe Eid on 20-22 July. Eid al-Adha is the second significant Muslim celebration after Eid al-Fitr, which denotes the finish of Ramadan, the long stretch of fasting.How is Hajj performed?
For Muslims, the Hajj re-institutes the activities of the Prophet Muhammad in his “goodbye journey” in 632 AD which follows the strides of the prophets Abraham and Ishmael through the Arabian desert. It is a focal mainstay of the Islamic confidence intended to purify adherents of wrongdoing and carry them nearer to God.
