Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health emphasized on Friday the importance of using sun umbrellas to prevent sunstroke during the Hajj, warning of the high temperatures expected in Makkah this year.

The ministry has been sending awareness and guidance messages to pilgrims, stressing the significance of umbrellas for protection from sunstroke, particularly during the peak temperatures between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

The National Center of Meteorology has issued warnings about the anticipated high temperatures, which can lead to sunstroke and thermal shocks.

Given the weather conditions, pilgrims are also advised to stay indoors during peak hours, drink plenty of water, and rest to avoid heat exhaustion, especially for worshippers in Arafat.
