Two Saudi men were seen giving out slippers to Hajj pilgrims on Friday who were in need. Many walk barefoot in the hot weather while performing their Hajj rituals in Mecca, and don't have the means to buy much needed footwear.
A video of the two men taking out brand new slippers from plastic bags and placing them on pilgrims’ feet circulated across social media, and prompted several positive responses about the kind, positive spirit surrounding the Muslim occasion.
Many said that these young Saudis come to Mecca from across the country to carry out these acts of kindness in Mecca.
