The Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Abuja has honoured and bid farewell to the guests of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, and His Royal Highness the Crown Prince, Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who will participate in the 2024 Hajj.

His Excellency Ambassador Faisal Ibrahim Al-Ghamidy presided over the ceremony, which was attended by a diverse group of officials, dignitaries, and the chosen pilgrims.

Ambassador Al-Ghamidy highlighted the continuous efforts and dedication of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in serving and caring for the pilgrims who journey to the Sacred House of Allah in Mecca.

He emphasized the importance of this mission and the pride with which the Kingdom undertakes the responsibility of ensuring a safe and spiritually enriching Hajj experience for all pilgrims, which reflects the Kingdom’s longstanding commitment to facilitating the pilgrimage for Muslims worldwide.

“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has always placed a high priority on the well-being and comfort of pilgrims visiting the Holy Sites. Under the leadership of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, and His Royal Highness the Crown Prince, Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the Kingdom has made significant investments to enhance the pilgrimage experience, ensuring that all visitors can perform their religious duties with ease and peace of mind,” said Ambassador Al-Ghamidy.

The Ambassador extended his heartfelt gratitude to King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed for their unwavering commitment and generous directives aimed at overcoming all challenges faced by pilgrims and Umrah participants.

He acknowledged the meticulous planning and extensive measures put in place by the Kingdom to accommodate and serve the millions of Muslims who undertake the Hajj pilgrimage each year. This dedication, he noted, underscores the deep spiritual and cultural importance of the Hajj and the Umrah in the Islamic faith.

As the ceremony drew to a close, a “Pilgrim’s Gift” was presented to the Nigerian guests as an appreciation and support that symbolises the Kingdom’s commitment to their comfort and well-being during the pilgrimage.

This year, 30 Nigerian pilgrims will join the Programme of Guests of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, an initiative designed to provide special care and services to pilgrims from around the world.

The Programme of Guests of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques is an esteemed initiative that annually sponsors and hosts thousands of pilgrims from various countries, enabling them to perform the Hajj with support and assistance provided by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to promote Islamic solidarity and fostering a sense of global Muslim community.
