Oman Hajj Mission leaves for Holy Lands

Omani Hajj mission for 1445 AH leaves for Holy Lands

Muscat: The Omani Hajj mission for this year 1445 AH left the country today, heading to the Holy Land. Upon its departure from Muscat International Airport, the members of the mission were seen off by His Excellency Dr. Muhammad bin Saeed Al-Maamari, Minister of Endowments and Religious Affairs, and a number of officials from the Ministry.

The mission, headed by Sultan bin Saeed Al Hinai, is scheduled to head immediately upon its arrival at King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah to the mission headquarters in Mecca. During its presence in Mecca and Medina, the Omani Hajj delegation will serve Omani and resident pilgrims and other guests of God and supervise their performance of rituals with ease.

The delegation consists of a fatwa and religious guidance delegation, an administrative and financial delegation, a delegation supervising Hajj companies, a medical delegation, a delegation from the Royal Oman Police, a delegation from the Financial and Administrative Control Authority, a media delegation, and a scout delegation.

The head of the Omani Hajj mission confirmed during a press conference held last week that the readiness in the Mina and Arafat camps is proceeding according to what was contracted with the contractor company, and that the two camps will have some additional improvements that are expected to provide a suitable atmosphere for performing the rituals, and to contribute to alleviating some of the challenges that arise. They are imposed by the circumstances of place and time, as temporary camps are prepared seasonally to receive pilgrims.

It should be noted that the number of pilgrims to the Sultanate of Oman this year, 1445 AH, reached 14,000 pilgrims, including 13,500 Omanis, 250 Arab residents, and 250 non-Arab residents, while the number of Hajj companies for this year reached 31 licensed companies.
