Will there be a Hajj this year? 2022

Written By Sanjir Habib On Mar-11th, 2022
Officially no word from Saudi Arabia as of today. March-the 11th.

But I see a Hajj unlikely. As preparation for a full fledged Hajj should start 10 months before Hajj. And right now we are just 3 months away from the date.

What about next year? 2023?

If I had been a Saudi official I would be hesitant to confirm a hajj 1 year beforehand.
Who knows if the pandemic will revive in the meantime or not.

The hajj process is a large engine. Stopping it might have been easy, but restarting it will take years.

My take.
