Touching pictures have shown pilgrims taking care of their elderly mother on Monday.
The pictures, shared by the Saudi Press Agency, show one of the sons wiping his mother’s face with a wet towel, due to temperatures reaching up to more than 40 degrees Celcius in Saudi Arabia during this year’s Hajj season.
The mother, named Um Fateh, as written on her wheelchair, has a little umbrella fixed on her chair to protect her head from the burning sun.
