The Presidency of Religious Affairs, which will host the Turkish pilgrim candidates in Arafat, has completed its preparations for the pilgrim candidates to perform their prayers comfortably.
All teams, from health to guidance in Mecca, affiliated to the Presidency of Religious Affairs, which takes utmost care to ensure that the pilgrims do not have any problems in any matter, will continue their services in Arafat as well.
One of the most important studies on Arafat, which is located approximately 25 kilometers east of Mecca, is transportation. For the transfers that will begin today, the Presidency will take the pilgrim candidates from their hotels by buses and place them in tents that have been prepared in Arafat.
It is planned that the buses will make approximately 3 tours in order to avoid problems in the transfer of the pilgrim candidates.
Air-conditioned high tents
The works were also completed so that the pilgrim candidates would not have any difficulties in Arafat.
High tents cooled by industrial air conditioners were set up to prevent the pilgrims from experiencing heat-related health problems due to seasonal conditions.
Efforts were also made to meet the food and water needs.
The pilgrim candidates who came to the holy lands were informed by the leaders of the guidance teams about food, drinking, waste and environmental cleaning in the guidance programs.
In this direction, attention was paid to environmental cleanliness in Arafat as well, and garbage bins were placed in the areas where the tents are located.
Field hospital established
The health services provided to pilgrim candidates and pilgrims at the Directorate of Religious Affairs hospitals, which have been in Mecca and Medina for many years, will continue in Arafat as well. Accordingly, a field hospital was established in the Arafat region.
The irşat program can be listened to from the tents
A guidance program will be held by the guidance teams for the pilgrim candidates who will spend the night in Arafat with prayer and worship.
The program, which will also include Quran recitation and hymns, will be delivered to the tents with a central sound system.
Erbaş will pray for the foundation
The pilgrim candidates who will perform the noon and afternoon prayers on the eve of the eve, will stand for the foundation with the prayer of Ali Erbaş, the President of Religious Affairs.
President Erbaş’s prayer for the foundation will be watched live from Turkey.
After the foundation prayer, the pilgrim candidates who will move to the Muzdalifah region with the opening of the borders of Arafat will perform the evening and night prayers in Muzdalifah, and after the Muzdalifah foundation, they will move to the Jamarat region to stone the devil.
After stoning the devil, he will go to the Masjid al-Haram and perform the duty of visiting circumambulation and sa’y, shave and leave the ihram.
