Haj Minister Opens Three Day Haj Symposium

Haj Minister Fouad Al-Farsy opened a three day Haj symposium in Makkah on Saturday.  He said the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and Saudi leadership want to provide first class services to pilgrims so they can safely perform the fifth pillar of Islam with ease.  Al-Farsy said “The Kingdom, which Almighty Allah has honored by making the host of Islam’s two holiest shrines, is keen to provide pilgrims with the best of services from the time of their arrival until they depart to their respective homes.”    

The symposium is being held under the slogan “safety in Haj.”  He noted the ongoing expansion of the Two Holy Mosques, development projects in Makkah, Madinah, and the holy sites are being carried out for the welfare of pilgrims and visitors. Numerous scholars, authors, and thinkers are participating in the symposium to talk about ways to make sure pilgrims have a safe Haj.
