Millions on Mount Arafat to fulfill Hajj Pilgrimage

MECCA (SD) -Today, over two million Muslims are standing on Mount Arafat in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, having traveled from distant countries across the Islamic world to fulfill the Hajj pilgrimage this year.

Hajj, one of the five pillars of Islam, takes place annually in the holy cities of Saudi Arabia, such as Mecca, Medina, and others. Saudi Arabian authorities have reported a significant decrease in deaths due to crowding and other issues this year, thanks to the expansion and renovations made to the areas where most incidents used to occur.

Every year, Saudi Arabia spends billions of dollars to ensure that the large number of pilgrims can perform their religious duties in the best possible conditions. They provide transportation, accommodation, mobile hospitals to treat pilgrims with urgent health issues, and other services.

Thousands of security personnel have been deployed to the pilgrimage sites to maintain order and safety.
