The Saudi Arabia authorities have concluded arrangements to close Umrah tonight in preparations for #Hajj 2021 until 13 Dhul Hijjah
According to Haramain, the closure will be effected by midnight today.
A few days ago, the Kaabah was draped with the new kiswah signalling the beginning of hajj 2021.
Only 60,000 pilgrims who are residents in the kingdom were given permission to perform hajj due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It was also gathered that 1,600 buses have been prepared to transport the 60,000 pilgrims during this year’s Hajj season, with precautionary covid-19 measures..
