Saudi Arabia will continue to be ‘spiritual, religious leader of all Muslims’

  • Al-Issa handed over the keys of new homes, built by the MWL, to widows and orphans

JEDDAH: The secretary-general of the Muslim World League (MWL) inaugurated a number of MWL-run health centers during his visit to the Comoros Islands. 

Dr. Mohammed bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa was taken on a tour of the centers’ various sections, and was briefed on the services provided. 

He visited and inspected the new MWL-run Saad bin Moad Institute, and met African scholars who will be teaching there. The scholars commended the MWL’s Islamic and humanitarian role and efforts. 

They also reiterated that Saudi Arabia will continue to be the spiritual and religious leader of all Muslims. 

Al-Issa visited the construction site of Saad Thabit Yaqoub Mosque in the village of Bahani, and visited numerous development and humanitarian projects. 

He handed over the keys of new homes, built by the MWL, to widows and orphans, and supervised the distribution of food baskets to the needy.

Recently, Comoros President Azali Assoumani hosted a delegation from the MWL headed by Al-Issa.

Assoumani lauded the efforts of the MWL in Africa, while Al-Issa said the league would be ready to liaise with Comorian scientists and intellectuals to tackle all forms of extremist thought, while adding that the MWL was keen on raising awareness about Islam, especially among youth.

The league established six educational institutes more than 30 years ago. These institutes graduated thousands of students who occupy some of the highest positions in the Republic of Comoros.

First pilgrims leave under Eyab initiative

  • Al-Amoudi toured the exhibition dedicated to welcome Eyab’s beneficiaries

Saudi Minister of Transport and Chairman of the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA), Dr. Nabeel Al-Amoudi, oversaw the departure of the first 

group of pilgrims under the Eyab initiative on Saturday together with GACA President Abdulhadi bin Ahmed Al-Mansouri.

Eyab seeks to improve services provided to pilgrims, with the authority aiming to enrich pilgrims’ experience at the Kingdom’s airports. It is expected to benefit 30,000 pilgrims during this year’s Hajj season.

Al-Amoudi toured the exhibition dedicated to welcome Eyab’s beneficiaries, inspected the services available and received a briefing from the initiative’s officials.

GACA started an experimental implementation of Eyab this year, aimed at pilgrims returning to Indonesia, India and Malaysia through Jeddah’s King Abdul Aziz International Airport and Madinah’s Prince Mohammed bin Abdul Aziz Airport.
