According to Saudi Minister Dr. Tawfiq Al Rabiah, it is best to undertake Umrah in the morning between 7:30 and 10:30, and in the evening between 11:00 pm and 2:00 am.

The minister said that the best times to pray can assist reduce crowding and create a more peaceful e

nvironment for prayer when Umrah performers from all over the world gather at the Grand Mosque in Mecca.

Pakistan said that government Hajj spending will be significantly reduced by 0.1 million rupees while maintaining uncompromised services.

Notably, each pilgrim will receive a 30 kilogram luggage, and for the first time, female pilgrims will also receive abayas (scarves) with the national flag on them.

The unique smartphone app will let pilgrims find their way and connect them with the appropriate authorities at all times. The app will eventually offer a number of regional languages in addition to Urdu and English at launch.

A 20-day short Hajj package has also been established by the government in an effort to increase residents' financial accessibility to the Hajj. While the journey to New Mina presents difficulties for pilgrims, efforts are being made to guarantee that Pakistani Hujjaj are housed in tents in Old Mina.
