Will Hajj go ahead this year?

The relevant authorities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have not yet made any official statement with regards to Hajj 1441/2020. The preparation to receive and serve pilgrims this year is still progressing within the Ministry of Hajj & Umrah and other relevant authorities.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office travel advice remains against all but essential travel, though this is expected to change as part of the UK government plan to ease lockdown measures.

Our advice is that since you have made your intention to perform Hajj this year, continue your preparations. The most important preparation for now is to:

  1. Collect, learn & practice making Duaa and Supplication;
  2. Read up on the rituals of Umrah and Hajj;
  3. Physical preparation, where you should aim to be able to comfortably walk 1-2 hours daily.
