Intending haj pilgrims should always engage in religious activities and perform zikir, Darussalam Services Sendirian Berhad (DSSB) Haj Officer Ustaz Haji Hud al-Hashir bin Muhammad said recently.

Delivering a religious lecture or tazkirah on Kelebihan Kota Makkah and 10 Hari Zulhijjah to the Sultanate’s intending haj pilgrims under the DSSB haj packages was Ustaz Haji Hud, who highlighted the history and benefits of the Holy City of Makkah.

The tazkirah, which is one of daily activities attended by the intending haj pilgrims during their time in the holy city, was held at the Ghufran Al-Safwah Hotel in Makkah Al-Mukarramah.

A total of 744 intending haj pilgrims registered under DSSB for this year have arrived in Makkah after spending eight days in Madinah al-Munawwarah.

Prior to the departure to Arafah on Zulhijjah 9, a number of activities and services were provided, including visits around both the holy cities.
