King Salman, who is also the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, said in a post on X that he prayed that God accepts the Hajj pilgrimage of all those who performed the ritual this year “and to perpetuate security and stability for our homeland and our people, and for our Islamic and Arab nations and the entire world.”

Over 1.83 million pilgrims made their way to Saudi Arabia to mark this year’s Hajj season, with masses of pilgrims on Sunday embarking on a symbolic stoning of the devil.

The ritual marked the final days of Hajj pilgrimage and the start of the Eid al-Adha celebrations for Muslims around the world.

The Hajj, one of the world’s biggest religious gatherings, is one of the five pillars of Islam and all Muslims with the means must perform it at least once.
