The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah Al-Asheikh has called on all Hajj pilgrims to strictly adhere to security and official instructions by obtaining a Hajj permit and the vaccinations required by the Ministry of Health, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Friday.
The grand mufti, who is also the chairman of the Council of Senior Scholars and head of the General Presidency for Scholarly Research and Fatwa, said that pilgrims were not allowed to go to Hajj without a permit.
He said: “The wise leadership and the state have enacted regulations and instructions aimed at facilitating and arranging the reception of pilgrims, providing them with all means of comfort, and helping them to perform rituals with ease and reassurance.
“These services require adherence to them and care for them to ensure the safety of everyone, and other purposes.”
He added that the Kingdom’s government had spared no effort in achieving its lofty goals in the service of Islam and Muslims, the Two Holy Mosques and their visitors.
He said the Kingdom’s leadership and people were honored by serving the Two Holy Mosques, but that “this requires full compliance with all official instructions received regarding organizing the Hajj, including obtaining a permit and also obtaining vaccinations.”
He urged pilgrims to invest their time during the days of Hajj in devotion to God through supplication and worship, and called on them to adhere to controls and procedures to ensure their safety and security.
