MAKKAH (92 News) - Amidst strict health measures, sixty thousand pilgrims are converging at Maidan-e-Arafat today (Monday) to perform the main ritual of Hajj "Waqoof-e-Arafat".

They will listen to the sermon to be delivered from Masjid-e-Nimra and perform Dhuhr and Asr prayers together.

After sunset, they will perform the Maghrib and Isha prayers together and will leave for Muzdalifah where they will stay for a night.

They will also collect pebbles from Muzdalifah to perform the ritual of Rammi, the stoning of devil.

After offering Fajr Prayer at Muzdalfa, they will leave for Mina for remaining Hajj rituals.   

Earlier today, the "Ghilaf-e-Kaaba" has been changed in the annual ceremony held in early morning in Saudi Arabia, where Muslims have gathered to perform the Hajj.

According to the details, the new cover has been prepared with estimated 120kg pure gold, 100kg silver and 670kg silk fiber. Approximately more than seven million riyals have been spent on the preparation of the Ghilaf-e-Kaaba.

The covering cloth of the Kaaba, known as Kiswa, is changed on 9th Zilhaj every year after Fajr prayer on the day of Arafat that is main pillar of the Hajj.
