The area, known as the “Mataf” in Arabic, refers to the open white area around the Kaaba where Haj and Umrah pilgrims perform the “tawaf.”
This follows the Kingdom’s rare and temporary suspension on pilgrimages due to the dangerous spread of the coronavirus, in order to protect citizens especially with the confirm of first case.

Dubai Ranked as the Busiest Airport in December by Official Airline Guide
As the holiday season pops up and December comes through Dubai is one of the best destinations for all. Dubai international airport had been the destination for 3.5 million seats last December as the official airline guide reported on Thursday. DXB had been in operation with all of its facilities and lounges, restaurants, and retail outlets. An operating phase of 15% increase last month. According to data that’s the busiest global airport this month. The busiest international airport is based upon scheduled capacity and compared to 2019 PR pandemic. The travel destination is set to be one of the most loved cities in the world, loved by the people across the globe. Dubai a urban dream is set to be a destination for people across the globe, obviously after travel restrictions released all globetrotters are around the mecca of travel and adventure. Traveling to Dubai is seen as a dream come true with trillions of tourists every day, and expats.
Majid Al Futtaim Death
The visionary UAE business man, Majid Al Futtaim died in December 17. Founding his empire group Al Futtaim, in 1992, and operating across 13 countries, in the MENA region, with three main subsidiaries, retail, ventures, and properties. After a Tweet from the company and his fellow employees about his death, Mr. Majid Al Futtaim passing and condolences was shared amongst all people. As Alian Bejjani the ceo of the group paid tribute to the late businessman. In a statement by Al Maktoum, “Mr. Majid was a visionary entrepreneur and a truly exceptional man who transformed the retailing experience both here in the UAE and more widely across the region,” he posted on Twitter. “His extraordinary foresight and clarity of purpose not only set our company on the path to success, but greatly contributed towards the UAE’s global reputation for innovation and excellence.” As his company tweeted, Majid Al Futtaim was a visionary entrepreneur who transformed the face of business in the entire region and his lifetime achievements have been an inspiration for many, “Our sincere thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Majid’s family and loved ones during this difficult time.”, as his death remarked the legacy of the empire he had built. Initiating from the UAE his career had brought the skyscrapers of the city.
Nasa Discovers the Corona of the Sun
Nasa enters the solar atmosphere for the first time in human history. A spacecraft had touched the sun, Nasa’s parker solar probe had touched the suns upper atmosphere. The new milestone, marks a major step for the parker solar probe and one giant leap for solar science. Similarly, as landing on the moon had boosted humanity with knowledge and know how it was formed. The discovery of our solar systems star had allowed us to know about the solar system, and the formation of it. All of this had provided us with information about our solar system. As the solar probe is circulating closer to the Solar star new discoveries are made, such as the flow of particles from the sun that can influence the planet earth. In 2019, parker discovered, that magnetic zigzag structures in the solar wind called switchbacks are plentiful close to the sun, but how and where they are formed are unknown. The distance to the sun and the Parker Solar Probe, has now passed close to identify where they originate the Solar surface of the Sun. In the daring milestone mission, Nasa had spent a few hours at the Sun’s corona due to the intense conditions their. But it did manage to go as 15 as low as 15 solar radii from the sun’s surface. In that zone a pseudostreamer was found which is responsible for the huge structures observed in the solar eclipses. According to a statement by the National American Space Agency “Passing through the pseudostreamer was like flying into the eye of a storm,” NASA said in the same statement, noting that Parker saw changes such as quieter conditions and fewer particles.”, in addition scientists had discovered magnetic funnels coming from the photosphere called super granules. These where advantgous to understand the fundamentals of solar physics because they illustrate how the fast particles of the solar wind originate. Located at the base of the corona “The structure of the regions with switchbacks matches up with a small magnetic funnel structure at the base of the corona”, a statement by Stuart Bale a Professor at UC Berkely and lead author at Switch backs paper, stated in a Nasa statement.
