MADINAH: Prince Faisal bin Salman, the governor of Madinah, on Tuesday welcomed the heads of official Hajj missions from several Arab and Muslim countries.

During the reception, Prince Faisal, who is also the chairman of the Hajj and Visit Committee in the region, said that Saudi Arabia has been honored to be custodians of the Two Holy Mosques, since the time of the founder King Abdulaziz and now under the auspices of King Salman.

He said that every effort has been made to ensure that the pilgrims complete their rituals safely, and would offer prayers for Allah to accept their Hajj and return them without incident to their homes.

The heads of the Hajj missions praised the Kingdom’s leadership for their efficient management of the pilgrimage, in particular during the COVID-19 pandemic.
