The observant Muslims use to  pray five times a day in Haram (the grand mosque). This year due to Covid the lesser number of Muslims attended the hajj pilgrimage in July. Similarly, the performance of Umrah has also been done with proper SOP’s, but most importantly locals are only allowed to perform the Umrah.
