In view of the upcoming summer season, the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has released updated guidelines for pilgrims performing Umrah. According to the statement, all pilgrims are now required to obtain an Umrah permit before arriving at the revered Masjid al-Haram, ensuring compliance with Saudi laws.
To acquire the Umrah permit, pilgrims can use the Nask and Tokalna apps as per the Ministry’s instructions. Additionally, the Ministry has outlined three essential guidelines for undertaking Umrah during the summer.
Firstly, pilgrims are advised to consult with a physician before embarking on the spiritual journey to ensure their well-being in the hot weather. Secondly, it is crucial to select an appropriate time for performing Umrah, considering the summer temperatures. Opting for moderate climate hours is strongly recommended.
Lastly, upon reaching the Masjid al-Haram, pilgrims are encouraged to take ample rest before commencing their Umrah rituals. This precautionary measure ensures that pilgrims can fully embrace the sacred experience while safeguarding their health
By adhering to these guidelines, the Saudi Ministry aims to facilitate a safe and spiritually enriching Umrah experience for all pilgrims during the summer months.
