Hajj Instructions 1433 Hijri - corresponding to 2012 G.

We hope that all Tour Operators organizing Hajj comply with the following instructions:

  1. The pilgrims must abide by the dates of grouping of the Jamarat Bridge, in order to avoid congestion in the face of rising temperatures.
  2. Arrange the pilgrims and not to rush until the arrival of the buses which carry them to their destination, adhere to remain in their homes and stay away from sun exposure.
  3. The Hajj missions and Tourist Operators should make contracts with caliber experienced contractors to provide catering services in order to ensure the safety of food from poison which occur by high temperatures, delay of food distributions or bad storage.
