Saudi Arabia has removed the restrictions on the number and age of pilgrims for this year’s Hajj after they had been imposed by COVID-19 for three years in a row.
As a result, pilgrims have returned to their pre-pandemic levels, marking a significant milestone. In order to receive a certificate of completion, pilgrims can conveniently download the Nusuk app and choose their preferred design, following the instructions provided by the ministry.
This digital certificate allows pilgrims to commemorate their participation in the annual Hajj pilgrimage.
According to Saudi officials, around 1.8 million individuals, including 1.6 million foreigners, participated in this year’s Hajj pilgrimage in and around the sacred city of Mecca.
After completing the Hajj rituals, numerous overseas pilgrims also visit Medina to offer prayers at the Prophet’s Mosque, which is Islam’s second holiest site, and to explore other significant Islamic landmarks. This period is often referred to as the second Hajj season, emphasizing the congregation of pilgrims in these revered locations.
