Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said on Sunday that the Kingdom will remain committed to serving Muslim worshipers while hailing state efforts behind ensuring a smooth Hajj pilgrimage.

“Your significant contributions and tireless efforts undertaken in service of the pilgrims have demonstrably facilitated the Hajj and enabled worshipers to perform their sacred rituals with ease and tranquility,” MBS addressed the visitors at the Royal Court in Mina Palace, wishing them a blessed Eid al-Adha on behalf of King Salman.

Over 1.83 million pilgrims made their way to Saudi Arabia to mark this year’s Hajj season that began on June 14.

The Hajj, one of the world’s biggest religious gatherings, is one of the five pillars of Islam and all Muslims with the means must perform it at least once.

Ahead of the pilgrimage, Saudi Arabia’s various agencies and officials exert efforts to ensure a smooth and safe journey with enforcing Hajj regulations and guidelines.

Authorities also raise awareness against fake Hajj advertisements warning of strict penalties against such fraudulent acts.

“The state, through all its relevant sectors, remains steadfast in its commitment to providing all necessary resources to serve those who visit the Two Holy Mosques,” MBS said, according to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA). “We strive to ensure a secure and reassuring environment for the fulfilment of their worship. May Allah Almighty bestow upon us continued success, prosperity, and perpetual blessings.”
