-"First of all, thank to Allah for giving us this opportunity. Our circumstances did not allow us to perform the Hajj by natural means, so we thank the leadership of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for this recognition, and we thank the people of Saudi Arabia for standing with the Palestinian people", said an emotional Al Zanati.

- This year Hajj will be with full capacity of previous level, first time after a gap of 2 years, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, where the number of pilgrims was limited as part of earlier precautionary measures during the corona pandemic.

- From the 60,000 and 10,000 pilgrims in the seasons of 2021 and 2020, respectively, this was a huge increase. In 2019, Saudi Arabia welcomed 2.5 million pilgrims before the epidemic.

- Last year, the number of pilgrims was only 899,353, of them 779,919 were from outside the Kingdom. But this year, it is expected the pilgrims will be over 25 lakhs or 2.5 million. Recommend : Mid day work ban for all private companies from 15th June 2023 in Saudi Arabia
