They have also provided gathering areas with Wi-Fi networks free of charge, which contributed to the performance of pilgrims to their rituals easily and smoothly and allowed them to communicate with their families.  The flexible rubber roads have also been allocated for the guests of Al- Rahman that work to absorb the stresses of pilgrims wishing to walk on foot between the holy site of Arafa and Muzdalifah, and the technology of cooling roads through white paint, and other efforts to serve pilgrims, which were monitored by the Society’s field team formed to monitor the Hajj.
