June 10, 2024

MADINAH — A hive of activity has taken over Miqat Dhu Al-Hulaifah as preparations for transporting pilgrims to Makkah for Hajj reach their peak. A comprehensive system of on-site services overseen by various government entities ensures the well-being of pilgrims and facilitates their seamless journey to Makkah.

The Saudi Press Agency observed the arrival of pilgrims at Miqat Dhu Al-Hulaifah on Monday. The Madinah Region Development Authority, responsible for the Miqat mosque, is leading extensive efforts to provide awareness and guidance services in multiple languages. They distribute copies of the Holy Qur'an, offer wheelchairs to elderly pilgrims and people with disabilities, ensure ample supply of drinking water, designate ablution stations, maintain cleanliness throughout the mosque, and guide pilgrims who may be separated from their groups to designated bus locations.

Security remains a top priority, with round-the-clock personnel deployed to manage the smooth flow of buses arriving at the Miqat. Orderly parking near the mosque and efficient departures toward the fast-track Hijrah Road leading to Makkah are ensured.

The Ministry of Health and the Saudi Red Crescent Authority have also deployed field teams to provide essential primary healthcare services to pilgrims at the site.

This coordinated effort ensures that pilgrims have a safe and well-organized experience as they prepare for their sacred journey to Makkah for Hajj.
