Mina - In a speech addressed to this year's pilgrims, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud congratulated them on the blessed Eid Al-Adh-ha (Greater Bairam), wishing them accepted Hajj and forgiven sins.
In the speech, transmitted by the Saudi media, the monarch also thanked Allah Almighty for helping the pilgrims to perform their rituals in ease and comfort.
He reminded them that God's will is that this yearly event becomes an opportunity for Muslims to gather in the same place and at the same time to worship certain and divine rituals without controversy or tough dialogue.
He reminded Muslims of such lessons to apprehend the message of Islam.
He said the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, who was assigned to serve the two holy mosques, attaches great attention to this responsibility which it undertakes with great interest, hoping to please Allah Almighty in the first place and his guests in the second.
While we are proceeding to do our best to provide the best services for pilgrims, we are not going to hesitate to firmly punish whoever dares to infringe the security and comfort of them, the monarch asserted.
The monarch said the responsibility of all of us is to shoulder the responsibility of spreading the principles of this moderate and final religion to all mankind. We have to prove to all people that this is the religion of moderation and tolerance and that it is against extremism and terrorism.
All through, Islam has proved to be the religion that seeks the good, security, stability and prosperity for, not only its followers, but also all mankind, he concluded, wishing pilgrims accepted Hajj, forgiven sins and safer return to their homes.
