ISLAMABAD: Chairman of Pakistan Ulema Council President Hafiz Tahir Ashrafi congratulated the Saudi Government on a highly successful Hajj season when he was received by the President of the Two Holy Mosques Sheikh Dr. Abdulrahman bin Abdulaziz Al-Sudais in Makkah on Monday.
Ashrafi told Arab News that he congratulated the government of Saudi Arabia and Dr. Al-Sudais on the season and the stupendous preparations for pilgrims from all over the world.
“We talked about the issues of the Muslim world and Saudi Arabia’s role in addressing them,” said Ashrafi. “We also discussed the ways and efforts for the unity of Muslims.”
Ashrafi said the services provided for pilgrims during the Hajj season were very impressive and allowed Muslims from across the globe to perform their rituals easily and comfortably.
