Large crowds make the Umrah pilgrimage more difficult and pilgrims have to hassle more to perform certain rituals like touching and kissing the holy stone of Hajr-e-Aswad and Kaabah itself and praying. There is a spot of great spiritual significance in Masjid-e-Nabwi called Riyad-ul-Jannah where Muslims pray a few rakats. During the presence of such large crowds, it becomes difficult to pray here as well as the place is too small to accumulate the large queues of pilgrims waiting for their turn.
