The Saudi authorities have informed pilgrims in Britain to register their desire for Hajj through a website, and a lottery will be held to choose who will go to perform the Hajj.

British Muslims, who are looking to perform the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca this year, fear losing thousands of pounds after the Saudi government imposed online reservations for those wishing to perform the pilgrimage.

The authorities informed the pilgrims to register their desire for Hajj through a website, and that a lottery would be held to choose who would go to perform the Hajj.

But there are some Muslims in Britain who have already booked travel to Saudi Arabia through Hajj tour operators, exposing them to the streak of losing money they paid.

Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam, and it is an obligation for every able Muslim and for those who are able to do so.
