Today Muslim pilgrims are performing one of the central rites of the Hajj — standing on Mount Arafat. For the second year now, Muslims have been forced to stick to coronavirus restrictions. Only 60 thousand people went to the Hajj — all of them are residents of the kingdom who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus. Previously, the number of pilgrims reached 2.5 million. One of the main rules is a ban on touching the Black Stone.
