Weather of Arabia - Congratulations continue to Saudi Arabia on the success of the 2024 Hajj season, at a time when pilgrims began to leave the holy sites after completing their rituals.

With tears of joy and reverence, the pilgrims bid farewell to Mecca after performing the Farewell Tawaf, expressing their thanks to Saudi Arabia and its leadership for their services to the guests of the Most Merciful and facilitating the performance of rituals. They prayed to God that their Hajj would be justified and their sins forgiven, hoping that this would not be their last visit to the Sacred House of God.

The Farewell Tawaf is the last of the Hajj duties and rituals, after completing the stoning of the Jamarat on the second day of Tashreeq (12 Dhul-Hijjah) for those in a hurry, or the last day of Tashreeq (13 Dhul-Hijjah) for those who are not in a hurry.

Saudi Minister of Health Fahd Al-Jalajel announced the success of the health system’s plans for the Hajj season 1445 AH and that it was free of any outbreaks or threats to public health.

 

The success of the 2024 Hajj season

The Hajj season achieved success on various religious, security and health levels, as confirmed by the language of numbers and the new services and technologies provided to facilitate pilgrims.

The Saudi Ministry of Transport employed 32 technologies during the 2024 Hajj season to facilitate the Hajj for about 1,833,000 pilgrims from 200 countries, including 17 new technologies.

The most prominent of these technologies are the “flying taxi,” “rubber asphalt,” and “inspection glasses,” in addition to the expansion of previous technologies such as refrigerated roads, the use of drones, and the Hajj service without a bag. The project of translating the Arafa sermon also achieved a new record by reaching... 621 million beneficiaries and listeners, which is the largest in the history of the Presidency of Religious Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques.

Regarding the security of pilgrims, the Public Prosecution used the “Tarjuman” device for the first time this year to translate the accused’s statements simultaneously with complete accuracy.

While the Saudi leadership was congratulated by a number of leaders of Arab and Islamic countries on the success of the Hajj season, including Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Meshaal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, and King of Bahrain, King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.
