In Pictures: Pilgrims Converge on Arafat

Muslim pilgrims ascended Mount Arafat, east of the holy city of Makkah, on Thursday, July 30, in the climax of a very different hajj due to coronavirus.

Following the lead of the Prophet’s Sunnah, the pilgrims performed noon and afternoon prayer “Dhuhr and Asr” combined and shortened at the Namera Mosque.

Later on, they moved to `Arafat, also known as “Mount of Mercy” before moving to Muzdalifah.
