Al-Madinah Al-Munawarah, Saudi Arabia, Aug. 13, 2019, SPA -- After having successfully and peacefully performed all Hajj rituals in Makkah and the sacred places on the outskirts of the holy capital, including Arafat, Muzdalifah and Mina, the first pilgrim arrivals were seen entering Al-Madinah Al-Munawarah, site of Prophet Mohammed's mosque.
Visiting Islam's second holiest city is a must for pilgrims; but timing, whether before or after performing Hajj in Makkah, is optional.
In interviews with the Saudi Press Agency, two Sudanese pilgrims: Badr Addin Al-Ameen and Mohammed Ahmed Dawood, expressed admiration of the city and lauded the world-class services provided for pilgrims by the Saudi Hajj-related government and private organizations.
