September 12, 2016 – Hajj 2016 Pictures: 1.8 Million Muslim Pilgrims Stone The Devil In Final Hajj Ritual In Saudi Arabia

Millions of Muslims started on Monday a stone-throwing ritual as part of the annual Hajj pilgrimage just outside Mecca, where hundreds were killed in a stampede at last year’s event.

A local media reports that Saudi security forces were deployed in large numbers in the Jamarat Bridge, a multi-level structure in the desert valley of Mina where the ritual is being carried out.

The ritual is expected to be carried out over three days beginning from Monday.

The pilgrims are performing the ritual, which symbolizes the stoning of the devil, smoothly and without overcrowding inside the Jamarat Bridge, the official Saudi news agency SPA reported.

“Security forces are regulating the pilgrims’ movement into and out of the building,” the agency added.
The pilgrims are setting off to the ritual in groups according to schedules to avoid a repeat of last year’s tragedy.

Some 769 Muslim pilgrims died in a stampede during the ritual in last year’s Hajj, according to Saudi official figures.

Agency tally and other independent reports, however, indicated that around 2,000 pilgrims died in the crush.

More than 1.8 million Muslims are attending this year’s Hajj, according to Saudi officials.
Muslims are expected to perform the Hajj, one of Islam’s five pillars, at least once in their lifetime provided they are fit enough and have the financial means to do so.

  1. This religion is just too funny to me. How long will they continue to stone the devil who hasn’t die ever since the establishment of islamic religion? Stoning a spirit being?just too funny.

  2. To “Stone Satan“ is the height of ignornce exhibited by this set of ******** called islam.

    They weren‘t this lucky last year to have “stone the devil“ without being stoned back with a devastating outcome.

    I believe it was so this year because the devil is not Omnipresent like our God. Hence, he was not at home this time around and the thought things has gone well with them this time.
    Brainwashed Elements.

    That stone wey they are throw devil, are they picks the stone there for Sawudi Arabia, or was they carry the stone from Nigeria to go there?*wink*

  4. With all these crowd stoning the devil for three days in a row,100% sure the devil/devils will not survive it this time.The end of devils & thanks be to God. Hopefully there will be no more bombing or any kind of terror act.

  7. taking a closer look at the comments made i must confess that this blog is dominated by a particular religion leaving no room for the other religion…..

  8. The only way to defeat the devil is to accept JESUS, HE has defeated the devil long time ago and those who believe in HIM has nothing to worry or stone anything..
