Saudi Gazette Report
Mina – Almost half of the approximately 900,000 pilgrims who returned to Mina on Monday night to perform stoning rituals for four consecutive days threw pebbles at three Jamarats on Tuesday afternoon.
They then left Mina for Macca, where they performed a Tawafurwida (a farewell round), marking the end of the annual pilgrimage with sound and joy notes.
Pilgrims are first Jamarat al-Sugra, then Jamarat al-Usta, and finally Jamarat al-Aqaba, security forces, health workers, and volunteers.
Many pilgrims who did not complete the Prophet’s visit to the mosque departed for Medina after playing Tawaf Alwida on Monday and Tuesday, and then departed for various parts of the kingdom and abroad. ..
The Directorate General of Passports (Jawazat) has confirmed that it is ready to facilitate the departure process for pilgrims via the Kingdom’s airports, ports and land entrances. Javazat said it has mobilized all human and technical resources and capabilities to complete the departure process easily and comfortably.
Hajj formally concluded on Tuesday, the third day of Tashlique, but pilgrims were rushed to complete it the day before. Half of the pilgrims in Mecca this year used concessions to depart one day before Monday, in line with the pilgrim grouping plan developed by the Saudi authorities.
Saudi authorities have won praise not only within the kingdom, but also from the Arab and Islamic worlds, for their great efforts to make this year’s Mecca pilgrimage a hassle-free success. Many Arab and Islamic countries and organizations have welcomed Saudi leaders and people for their great efforts leading to the success of the Mecca pilgrimage.
