Riyadh: The Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah says that women pilgrims will not be able to perform Hajj with a Muharram who has performed Hajj during the last 5 years.

The clarification from the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah came after a question from several people asking whether a woman wishing to perform Hajj could include a Muharram who has performed Hajj before.

According to a statement issued by the ministry, women pilgrims will not be able to perform Hajj with a Muharram who has performed Hajj during the last five years.

It may be recalled that the Saudi government has fixed June 3-11 as the date for submission of applications for Hajj pilgrims this year. According to the officials, in order to give equal opportunity to all the people, the lucky ones will be announced through lottery this year.
