Thousands of pilgrims at Makkah’s Grand Mosque were showered with rainfall as they performed Umrah during this week.
Amid an atmosphere of spirituality and prayer, pictures of the scene showed pilgrims under this weather circulating around the Kaaba in complete serenity.
The Kaaba, the cubic shaped structure that Muslims regard as the house of God, has been itself covered with rainwater.
In a tweet, the Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques has described the scene saying “An atmosphere of beauty and spirituality as rainfall hits Grand Mosque”.
It published a series of images capturing those moments:
