A Saudi workshop organized by the Saudi general presidency of the Grand Mosque has recommended an award be created to urge competition among countries sending pilgrims for hajj in terms of their planning and organization.

The workshops participants also issued a recommendation that the Grand Mosques workforce should be given a guidebook to outline the roles and responsibilities of all its department, the Saudi daily al-Eqtisadiahah reported Wednesday.

The participants also called for the authorities to create a social media presence aimed at guiding pilgrims in the hajj process.

The workshop ended with a call for the Grand Mosques imams to play a larger role in communicating with the heads of missions, preachers and religious scholars arriving in Saudi Arabia for hajj or the smaller pilgrimage of umrah.

It also called for holding workshops before and after each hajj season in order to discuss the positive aspects and resolve the negative ones.
