Hajj 2020 has concluded peacefully after one thousand pilgrims performed different rituals for two days before Eid ul Adha.
Only around one thousand pilgrims performed Hajj this year due to crowd control restrictions put in place by Saudi Arabia in the wake of Covid-19 pandemic. Normally, over two million people perform Hajj.
For the first time in decades, international travelers were barred from the Hajj due to Coronavirus pandemic. Some seventy percent of the worshippers this year were foreign residents of Saudi Arabia, with the rest being Saudi Arabian nationals. All of those selected to take part were aged between 20 and 50.
