Saudi Arabia has announced that pilgrims will be permitted to utilize electric scooters throughout the Hajj season this year. This initiative is designed to enrich the pilgrims' journey by offering a lightweight, secure, and effective means of transport. Three specific routes have been allocated for electric scooter usage: the route from Muzdalifah to Mina, the pedestrian path leading to the Jamarat facility from the west, and the pedestrian path entering the Jamarat facility from the east. Each route is roughly 1.2 kilometers long and 25 meters wide, ensuring plenty of room for safe passage. The electric scooters, which have a top speed of around 15 kilometers per hour, are user-friendly and time-saving, making them a perfect choice for pilgrims. This modern, cost-effective, and comfortable transport option guarantees safety and swiftness, greatly enhancing the overall Hajj experience. Additionally, the Saudi Ministry of Health's branch in the Madinah region introduced the Smart Robot service on Saturday in the Central Area close to the Prophet's Mosque. According to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), the service is intended to disseminate educational messages, guidance, and health directives for the safety and awareness of pilgrims in more than 96 languages worldwide. Simultaneously, the volunteer and awareness teams from the Health Ministry's Madinah branch are actively engaged in field operations with 220 male and female volunteers and over 12 teams operating non-stop to assist the guests of Allah. They offer health and emergency services during the Hajj season at the Prophet's Mosque and its surrounding areas, Prince Mohammad bin Abdulaziz International Airport, and Haramain Train Station, along with the mosques of Quba, Khandaq, Sayyid Al-Shuhada, and Miqat Dhul-Hulaifah. The Hajj is set to commence on June 14, as Saudi Arabia confirmed following the sighting of the crescent moon on Thursday evening, marking the start of the month in which the annual pilgrimage takes place. The Supreme Court has declared that Dhu al-Hijjah, the 12th and final month of the Islamic calendar, will begin on Friday, as reported by the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA). The Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam and is a duty that must be performed at least once in a lifetime by every Muslim who is able to do so.
