MADINAH: The Egyptian pilgrim, Sayyed Elwan, is in the Kingdom for the second time to perform Umrah.
Impressed with “many changes and developments in the Kingdom” since his first visit, Elwan praised the expansion projects of the two holy mosques in Makkah and Madinah, the Mashaer railway project, the Haramain High Speed Rail as well as tens of multiple projects.
He referred to the Saudis’ good hospitality, in particular, in welcoming their guests, which he said could be noticed at the airport itself.
“The reception at the airport was very classy and the employees were very welcoming as they completed the formalities in no time,” he added.
Elwan said the relationship between the Egyptian people and their Saudi counterparts are brotherly relations
“Egyptians have feelings of love and respect to the Kingdom and the Saudi people as they stood by the Egyptian people in difficult times,” he said.
The Egyptian pilgrim said he came to the holy city of Madinah after performing Umra in Al-Masjid Al-Haram in Makkah.
“I visited the Prophet’s Mosque and had the honor of sending blessings and salutations upon the Prophet (peace be upon him),” he said.
Elwan visited the popular archaeological and historical sites and mosques in Madinah.
“Madinah is close to my heart. It has a rich history of archaeological and historical treasures and yet it looks like an international city with its great developmental projects such as the luxurious hotels, malls, roads, tunnels and bridges,” he said.
“Madinah is in every Muslim’s heart.”
