Jeddah, January 10, 2024, The Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Dawah, and Guidance is making a significant impact at the third annual Hajj and Umrah Services Conference and Exhibition, organized by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah (MoHU) in collaboration with the Pilgrims Service Program. The ministry is using its pavilion to showcase an innovative Hajj and Umrah education application that leverages multilingual three-dimensional (3D) virtual-reality (VR) technology. The primary objective of this cutting-edge application is to assist pilgrims, Umrah performers, and visitors in avoiding mistakes during their rituals.
The 3D multilingual VR technology utilized in the educational application offers users a unique virtual tour, simulating a real visit to the Grand Mosque and the sacred sites of Mina, Arafat, and Muzdalifah. Through this immersive experience, users can live the Hajj and Umrah journey, gaining valuable insights and understanding the correct procedures.
The application goes beyond mere simulation by presenting a virtual environment that accurately reflects the geographical reality and chronological order of the Hajj and Umrah rituals. It guides navigating potential difficulties that may arise during the performance of Hajj and Umrah.
The ministry's pavilion at the exhibition stands out for its uniqueness, offering visitors a diverse array of services and a wide range of electronic tools and systems. The 3D applications showcased serve as an informative tool, highlighting the ministry's dedicated efforts to enhance services for pilgrims, Umrah performers, and visitors alike. This technological initiative represents a forward-thinking approach to education and guidance in the context of the sacred Hajj and Umrah rituals.
