    Dubai: Saudi Arabia announces that Haj will be held this year but with a very limited number of pilgrims and in compliance with precautionary measures including a ban on older pilgrims and additional health checks.

    Only Saudis and expatriate residents from various nationalities are allowed to perform the Hajj rituals this year, as a precautionary measure to avoid crowds and stem the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

    Saudi authorities said the decision is in line with the keenness of Kingdom’s leadership to ensure the public safety amid the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus.

    The pilgrimage, which is scheduled for late July this year, is one of the largest religious gatherings in the world, with more than 2.5 million pilgrims visit the holiest sites of Islam in Mecca and Medina for the week-long Haj, a once-in-a-lifetime duty for every able-bodied Muslim who can afford it.

    Saudi Arabia asked Muslims in March to put their Haj plans on hold and suspended Umrah until further notice.

    Hajj can never be suspended. Even if only the people of Makkah perform it still it should go ahead.

    May Allah have mercy on us, It does seem like the end is near.Since according to medical specialists we might have to learn living with this new pandemic,untill a vaccine is developed, countries and organisation will have to work hard to find a way out, the new normal might be easier and better for us than we might think, Also if it can not be cured completely , death rate is low and recovery rate is high ,we must avoid fear mongering.
