Chechnya Deputy Mufti for foreign relations Torko Dawdov (Asharq Al-Awsat)

Holy Sites– The level of services provided by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to all pilgrims during Hajj and Umrah is a clear message to anyone doubting the country, according to Chechnya Deputy Mufti for foreign relations Torko Dawdov.

Dawdov praised the security services provided during Hajj which shows the responsibility in looking after more than 2 million pilgrims from all over the world.

The deputy Mufti is attending the pilgrimage for the first time this year. He praised the way he was hosted and the great honor he received from the program committee, as well as all facilitations that were provided upon his arrival at the airport until he arrived at his residence place.

He said that Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a country for all Muslims, adding that it is a pride to have the Holy Mosques on its territories and serve all Muslims. He also stated that the Kingdom has a special place in all Muslim hearts.

To anyone doubting the services provided by Saudi Arabia, Dawdov stated that they should just look through all media outlets broadcasting the whole rites.

“We Muslims of Russia, and the whole world, refuse the politicization of Hajj. Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the second country to every Muslim. It provided us all the services to be able to perform the fifth pillar of Islam,” he added.

He mentioned that during Hajj, Saudi Arabia had assigned a Ministry of Hajj to develop services provided every year to host all pilgrims in a small area.

“As part of a program led by Custodian of Two Holy Mosques King Salman, the Kingdom cares for all pilgrims the way a father cares for his children,” Dawdov explained.

Chechnya Deputy Mufti concluded his remarks asking Allah to safeguard Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and his Crown Prince and award them the best rewards for the services that they’re affording to Islam and Muslims, as well as the Two Holy Mosques and visitors from pilgrims, Umrah performers and visitors.
