World Muslim Communities Council supports Saudi Arabia's decision on this year's Hajj

Abu Dhabi (UNA-OIC) – Chairman of the World Muslim Communities Council Dr. Ali Rashid Al-Nuaimi on Tuesday affirmed the Council’s support for the decision of the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah to hold this year’s Hajj with the participation of a very limited number of pilgrims from different nationalities residing in Saudi Arabia.

In a statement seen by the Union of OIC News Agencies (UNA), Al-Nuaimi indicated the importance of the Saudi authorities’ decision at this delicate time, in order to preserve human lives, in implementation of the purposes of Islamic law, the establishment of the interests of the other world and this world, and not to disrupt the life system. Thus, the performance of this ritual comes in compliance with the precautionary measures, directives and official instructions, as well as the requirements for prevention and social distancing, to protect people from the coronavirus pandemic that has spread globally to more than 180 countries.

The chairman of the World Muslim Communities Council, which is based in the UAE capital Abu Dhabi, said that Saudi Arabia always affirms its keenness to realize the comfort and safety of the pilgrims and visitors of the Prophet’s Mosque, in addition to ensuring their safe return to their countries after the Hajj pilgrimage.
