IFN Daily Update: 2020 Eid El-Kabir Celebrations and Tourism In Saudi Arabia and Jordan

This Edition of the Islamic Finance Daily Update anchored by Bukola Akinyele focuses on the 2020 Hajj  Pilgrims in Saudi Arabia which up to 10,000 people residing in the kingdom will participate in the Muslim ritual, a tiny fraction of the 2.5 million that attended last year, after what many saw as an opaque selection process that left a wave of applicants rejected.

 

The foreign press are barred from this year's hajj, usually a huge global media event, as the government tightens access to the holy city of Mecca and puts in place strict health restrictions to prevent a virus outbreak during the five-day pilgrimage - a key pillar of Islam.

 

It also focuses on the Significance of Eid-Al-Adha ahead of the celebration as the Nigeria Minster of Interior Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has called on Muslims to continue to imbibe the spirit of love, peace, kindness,  and Sacrifice, as exemplified by the holy Prophet Mohammed (Peace be upon Him) and to also use the period to pray unity, prosperity and the stability of the country especially as the world is witnessing global health challenges caused by Covid-19 pandemic.  

 

The Kingdom of Jordan has announced  the occupancy rate in Aqaba and Wadi Rum is expected to reach 100% during Eid Al Adha, according to a sector representative at the Jordan Society of Tourism and Travel Agents.

 

In the four days of the Eid Al Adha holiday, Tahat expects there will be 200 tourism buses moving around the Kingdom, noting that "people need a breather after the coronavirus lockdown and curfews they experienced".
