Saudi Arabia confirmed on Sunday evening that the highly anticipated annual Hajj pilgrimage would commence on June 26, with Eid Al Adha following two days later. This confirmation came following the sighting of the crescent moon, which marks the beginning of Dhul Hijjah, the 12th and final month in the Islamic calendar. Consequently, Dhul Hijjah began on Monday, enabling the determination of the starting dates for Hajj (the eighth day of the month) and Eid Al Adha (the 10th day).

Hajj will officially commence on Monday, June 26, with Arafat Day taking place on Tuesday. Eid Al Adha celebrations will then commence on Wednesday, June 28. Each year, millions of Muslims embark on the journey to Makkah to fulfill their Hajj obligations, with many also making their way to the city of Madinah. This pilgrimage, along with the other pillars of Islam, holds immense significance in the lives of Muslims.

The annual Hajj pilgrimage takes place during Dhu Al Hijja, the final month of the Islamic calendar, spanning a duration of approximately four to six days. This year, more than two million Muslims are expected to partake, signifying a return to pre-pandemic participation levels. Eid Al Adha, known as the "festival of the sacrifice," coincides with the Hajj pilgrimage to Makkah.

The significance of this occasion lies in the commemoration of a pivotal event described in the Quran. The story recounts how Prophet Ibrahim received a divine dream in which he was instructed by God to sacrifice his son, Ismail, as a test of his unwavering faith.
