Biggest Hajj in history begins

Online Desk: The ritual of the holy Hajj began with the sound of Labbaik Allahumma Labbaik and circumambulation of the Kaaba. Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has said that this time (in 2023) in history, the Kaaba will be visited by the most pilgrims.

Millions of pilgrims from 160 countries around the world circumambulated the Kaaba on Sunday (June 25). “This year, we will witness the biggest Hajj in history,” said a ministry official about the biggest Hajj in history.

After the corona pandemic of 2020, all health restrictions have been lifted for the first time. It is estimated that more than 25 lakh people will perform Hajj together this time.

However, the Saudi Embassy in Washington, USA said that 31 lakh 61 thousand 573 pilgrims performed Hajj in 2012. Which was the biggest Hajj in history. This number is expected to be crossed this time.

Due to the corona epidemic, only 10 thousand people had the opportunity to perform Hajj in 2020; 59 thousand in 2021. And last year this number was 10 lakh.

Local time on Sunday evening will go to Hajira Mina. Which is located 8 km away from Kaaba. Then they will go to Arafat Maidan. The last Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) gave his last speech at this Arafat Maidan.

The Saudi government has taken all measures so that the pilgrims can perform all the rituals of Hajj without any problems. Meals have been arranged for the convenience of Hajids in Mina. Apart from this, law enforcement personnel have been deployed for their security.

Meanwhile, this season of Hajj has fallen in intense heat. It is known that the Hajj must complete the Hajj rituals in a temperature of about 45 degrees Celsius. 32,000 health workers and enough ambulances have been arranged to provide medical care if anyone falls ill this summer.
This year, the main ceremony of Hajj will begin tomorrow, June 26. Which will continue till July 1. And this year, Eid-ul-Azha will be celebrated in Saudi Arabia on June 28.
