Ministry of Health Warns Pilgrims about the Risk of Sun Exposure in Arafat from 11 am to 4 pm


Arafat: Concerned for the pilgrims’ well-being, the Ministry of Health has warned them about the risks associated with sun exposure in Arafat, particularly during peak hours from 11 am to 4 pm.

The ministry stressed the need to exercise caution, due to the prevailing high temperatures at the holy sites. During this year’s Hajj season temperatures at the holy sites are high, posing significant challenges for pilgrims.

Pilgrims are strongly advised to take all the necessary precautions to protect their health and safety. This includes using umbrellas to avoid direct sun exposure, staying hydrated by drinking water regularly (even if not feeling thirsty), following all health instructions and advice, and avoiding unnecessary exposure to sun or contact with hot surfaces.
