If you are in the Kingdom, visiting the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah in the Hijaz region is a given. In fact, thousands of people from all over the world make the all-important Umrah pilgrimage during the holy month. That, however, may not be possible this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
For local Saudis and residents though, visiting the Two Holy Mosques may be easier this year, thanks to the efficient applications of Eatmarna, Tawakkalna and Tabaud.
Here are more reasons for you to visit the unique region of Hijaz this Ramadan. But before that, wear your mask and maintain social distancing!
1-The Two Holy Mosques and the Clock Tower: The first and foremost reason to visit this part of the Kingdom is undoubtedly to pray and seek closeness to Allah SWT in Makkah and Madinah. It is indeed a blessing to be able to visit Masjid Al-Haram and the Prophet’s Mosque. Moreover, the majestic Clock Tower is an added attraction for visitors, who can take a tour of the giant structure.
