Over 171,000 Pakistani Hujjaj from out of a total of 200,000 have so far returned home after performing the sacred religious obligation of Hajj.

A spokesman of the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony said in a statement that over 99,000 government and 72,000 private scheme Hujjaj have arrived in the country after performing Hajj.

He said over 67,500 Hujjaj have already reached Madina Munawwara for leaving home after eight days stay there.

While 23,000 government scheme Hujjaj were still present at Madina Munawwara.

Moreover, as mentioned before thousands of Muslims make their way in to the Holy city of Makkah, these Muslims come in from all corners of the world to perform this obligation.

One of those countries is Pakistan which sees a very significant proportion of people make their way in to the holy city.

Moreover, this year over a total of 200, 000 people from Pakistan made it to Makkah and it is now believed that about 171,000 Pakistani Hujjaj have successfully returned home after performing the sacred religious obligation of Hajj.

The post-Hajj flight operation would continue from Jeddah and Madina Airports to 10 Pakistani airports till September 15.

Every year thousands of Muslims vet the chance to avail the opportunity to perform one of the main duties of a Muslim and hence they are chosen and given a chance to get completely sin free in this world.

A very important and religious duty of a Muslim is to at least once in his life, if he has the wealth and the will, then he or she has to perform the Hajj.

This is a sign shown to Allah of the complete submission of one’s self in the way of Allah and to in turn be grateful to Allah for all the blessing he has provided to that person.
