Hajj 2022: Masjid Al Kheyf reopened for pilgrims after two years

Masjid Al Kheyf, which had been closed for two years, has been reopened for Hajj pilgrims from around the world as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia prepares to welcome them.

COVID-19-related regulations kept the mosque shuttered for two years.

The Saudi Ministry of Islamic Affairs has completed the necessary preparations to welcome pilgrims to Al Kheyf.

“After closure of two years due to pandemic, the ministry of Islamic affairs completes the preparations to receive hujjaj in Masjid Al Kheyf, Mina,” read a statement issued on the official Twitter handle for the publication of news related to the two holy mosques in Saudi Arabia.

The pilgrims will be able to pray on the 8th, 10th, 11th, 12th, and 13th Zil Hajj, the holy month of Hajj, according to the ministry.

Al Khyef is a sacred location in Makkah that is located in the centre of Mina. It is particularly significant during Hajj since it is also known as the Mosque of Prophets, as it is stated that several prophets, including Prophet Musa, worshipped there (AS).

Every year, millions of Muslims visit the holy city of Makkah to undertake Hajj, one of Islam’s five pillars. Hajj is set to begin on the evening of Thursday, July 7 and conclude on the evening of Tuesday, July 12 this year.
