First batches of Qatar pilgrims arrived home after performing Hajj with ease and comfort.
Batches of Qatar pilgrims arrived home Tuesday in few numbers as the arrival of the last campaign pilgrims will be completed on Thursday.
For his part, the Head of the Qatari Hajj Mission Ali Sultan Al Misifri praised the great and well-appreciated efforts made by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to receive the pilgrims and the capabilities the kingdom employed to serve the pilgrims. Al Misifri expressed his deep appreciation to the government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and the Crown Prince, and all authorities in the Kingdom for all they have done to facilitate the pilgrims and their service and to ensure their security and safety.
Al Misifri praised the cooperation of the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah and the Tawafa Establishment for South East Asian Pilgrims with the Qatari mission in facilitating all matters related to the Hajj season in Makah Al Mukaramah, and at the holy sites of Mina, Arafat and Muzdalifah, in the service of pilgrims.
Al Misifri stressed that the Hajj season this year was distinguished and exceptional for Qatar pilgrims as the conditions were created for them to complete all the rituals with ease and comfort without any difficulties. The mission's support units were keen to accompany the pilgrims of Qatar until the throwing of the jamarat and the conclusion of their rituals, pointing out that the Qatari Hajj mission will begin its work after returning to prepare for the next season by setting programs and development plans, using proposals and suggestions made by the pilgrims and campaigns, addressing problems or obstacles encountered by pilgrims; as the ambition to provide better services and support for Qatar pilgrims does not stop year after year.
He added that the facilities that Qatar pilgrims received this year, whether in Makah or in the holy places are due to many factors, the most important of which is that the Qatari Hajj mission with the continuous support and follow-up of HE the Minister of Endowments (Awqaf) and Islamic Affairs, assumed the largest role in conducting the affairs of Qatar pilgrims, through direct coordination with the Tawafa Establishment for South East Asian Pilgrims, cooperating with one of the largest service companies to fully equip the camps of Mina and Arafat, providing all facilities and services to support the campaigns and help them dedicate themselves to serving the pilgrims, and providing all means of comfort for the pilgrims to perform their rituals with ease and to the fullest. The mission also worked in coordination and cooperation with the Saudi security authorities, which provided most of the facilities and assistance to group Qatar pilgrims on the day of Tarwiyah, and during the day of Arafat and Nafra to Muzdalifah, and then return to Mina and throw the pebbles on the days of Tashreeq.
Al Misifiri praised the great role played by the mission's support units and all members of the Hajj mission for the services they provided to the pilgrims, which greatly contributed to the success of this year's Hajj season. Al Misifri pointed out to the cooperation and collaboration between the campaigns' owners and the mission which comes in the context of serving Qatar pilgrims.
He pointed out that the Department of Hajj and Umrah Affairs at the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs is ready to receive any suggestions or observations from the pilgrims who performed their rituals this year, which is of great importance to raise the level of the mission's services and upgrade them in the coming years.
The Qatari Hajj Mission will leave the Holy Places on Thursday evening, July 14th, after all the campaigns leave Makah to return safely to Doha after performing the Hajj.
