Members of Hajj security forces appeared in a video this week welcoming pilgrims from around the world in a variety of languages - including sign language.
Their messages are:
“Here in Saudi Arabia, we welcome pilgrims from around the world. We are honored to help and serve you.”
“Welcome to Mecca, may you have a blessed and accepted Hajj.”
“We welcome all guests of God.”
“Welcome guests of God, we are honored to serve you.”
“May God accept your pilgrimage and submission.”
“We welcome all guests of God, may you have a blessed and accepted Hajj and your sins be forgiven.”
Millions of Muslims have arrived to Islam’s holiest city of Mecca to perform the annual hajj pilgrimage which begins on Sunday.
