Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - December 14, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Hajj - The Annual Pilgrimage to Mecca Tho Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sat., Dec. 14, 1971 By Seymour Topping kl 19/4 New York Tim** S*rvlt* JIDDA, SAUDI ARABIA -I his is the tune of the sacred Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, and hundreds of thousands are thronging through this Red sea port to the birthplace of the Prophet Mohammed. Saudi officials say they expect a record number this year as the Islamic brotherhood of SOO million experiences a resurgence of spirit and pride nourished by political successes and oil money. About 880,000 made the journey in 1973 The climactic day of the Hajj, which falls on Dec. 25, will bring more than a million pilgrims before the Kuaba, the House of God, in Mecca which Moslems call "on earth, the noblest spot that God has chosen.” Promise They come to redeem the promise of the prophet: "If anyone performs the pilgrimage for God’s sake without talking immodestly or acting wicked, he will return free from sin as the day his mother bore him." The influx is taxing the facilities of this kingdom of only about six million people. "The cost to our government is very great, but we gladly accept it as part of our duty to Islam,” a Saudi official said. King Faisal, absolute monarch of Saudi Arabia, holds himself chief guardian of the Moslem religion. Petrodollars dropping into state coffers at a rate of $25 billion annually have given him the secular means to endow the faithful. Stone dormitories are under construction rn long rows in Jidda to house the pilgrims at their first way station Dignitaries welcomed as state guests may stay at the magnificent Hainra palace overlooking the clear waters of the Red sea The great yellow palace was built for Faisal, but the king, spartan in his personal habits, spurned it as too luxurious. As the pilgrims journey to Mecca and such other holy places as Medina, site of the tomb of the prophet, they will bi* given free medical care and other facilities at government stations. In this desert kingdom, the furnishing of water and ice is the most for-findable task Most of the pilgrims arrive in groups aboard (bartered planes and ships, many from such distant lands as Indonesia, Pakistan and Mauritania. In mid-November, three F.gyptian passenger ships and a converted freighter started through the Suez Canal — the first ships to make the trip since the 1967 war with Israel — bringing pilgrims to Jidda Each group is met by a guide in Jidda representing a mutawif, who is commissioned by the government to tend to material and spiritual needs. Before taking the road to Mecca and entering the state of purity known as Ihram, many pilgrims have a final fling of a few days in Jidda This port, already frenzied with a trade and construction boom generated by oil revenues. becomes a traffic-jammed crossroads of the world. Trade Center Pilgrims of more than a dozen Asian and African nationalities in native costumes mingle on the streets with stately Saudi men dressed in the thoub, the flowing ankle-length white robe, and the gutrah headdress; their veiled wives are draped in black from head to foot. The latest mixtures are hundreds of American and European engineers and businessmen scrambling for the fabulous contracts dangling in this banking and trade center. Jidda accepts the influx casually. Once almost all foreigners, especially nonbelievers, were restricted to the port city. Foreign diplomatic missions are still in Jidda, as is the foreign ministry, the only ministry that has not been moved to Riyadh, the royal Capital Probably half of Jidda’s population, estimated at 450,* OOO, is made up of foreigners, most of them Yemenis, Pakistanis and black Africans, who do virtually all the manual labor in the construction of the scores of apartment houses and office buildings that are turning the city into a jumble of old and new. (onstriiction Housing and commercia! construction has been encouraged by the government, which offers its citizens longterm bank loans up to 70 percent of building costs at no interest and with an understanding that only 50 percent of the loans need be repaid. The selling price of land in downtown Jidda has been pushed up by speculation to as much as $25 million for an acre With alcoholic drinks, dancing and other close mingling of the sexes in public entertainment places forbidden in Saudi Arabia, most of the pilgrims find their amusement in the Jidda shops, where the Hajj sales are in full swing The city’s markets are among the most diverse in the world. Bedouin silver bracelets and python skins from the Sudan are sold in the Suk, the old bazaar, while nearby in glistening modern shops there are products ranging from Jean Patou perfume to Sony television sets and fat Cuban Monte Cristo cigars Bargains can l>e picked up in foreign goods since Saudi custom duties are modest and there are no currency exchange controls. Foreign Cars In front of the city hall, Bedouins sell hooded falcons to hunt birds and gazelles in the desert. The streets are crowded with new Cadillacs, Mercedes and Toyotas driven by Saudis. Dealers moan that they cannot get deliveries fast enough. For poorer pilgrims, the best buys are food staples. To protect the population from world inflation, the government subsidizes the retail prices of such items as flour and sugar, which sell at about a third of the import price. Gasoline is also cheap. The road to Mecca is a four-lane asphalt highway lined with stations selling high-test at IK cents a gallon Pilgrims in white Peugeot station wagons, Datsun trucks, Chevrolet taxis and European-made buses rush down the road at more than KO miles an hour past camels and black goats grazing at construction sites in the hilly, rock strewn desert. Thirty miles down the highway curving west from Jidda and 15 miles from Mecca, there is a sign barring nonbelievers from the Holy Places. Their cars are diverted down a bypass. Prayers Said Before entering the Holy Places, the pilgrim dons his garments of Ihram For men there is a two-piece white seamless gown and sandals, while women are draped from head to toe except for their veiled faces and hands. Fingernails are cut, hair is shaved, body and clothes are perfumed and prayers are said. The pilgrim groups walk into Mecca where their mu-tawifs are waiting to assign them to housing About a quarter of a million people live in Mecca, which is burgeoning with new apartments, with many extra rooms set aside to be rented to pilgrims. There are tents for others. Limited Visas Many pilgrims will remain in Saudi Arabia for as long as two months, but then the government insists they comply with their limited visas and leave. Thousands would like to stay because of the economic advantages here. The government requires that Moslem embassies in Jidda keep track of their pilgrims. Indigent pilgrims who say they cannot afford transportation home are A SM Mat Y Of OOO Control — 3030 F ova HW Ramon Booth SS 9:30 Sot. 10:30.

The Saudis do not grant citizenship to aliens, for they are determined to maintain the purity of their nationality. Although the country is severely short of manpower to fulfill its ambitious construction projects, foreign workers are admitted with permits only for the duration of specific jobs.
