By Fatima Muraina


Ondo State Muslim Pilgrims in the holy land of Saudi Arabia have completed their historical visitation (Ziharah) in Medina and are now in Mecca, preparing for the commencement of the Hajj.

The State Chairman of the Muslim Welfare Board, Alhaji Zikirullah Chandy Adams, disclosed this in a telephone conversation over the weekend.

Adams said the pilgrims spent four days in Medina before travelling to Mecca  for  the commencement of the Hajj.

Highlighting the places visited in Medina, Adams said they visited Masjid-il-Huba, Masjid-Kiblatain, Sabarah Masajid, Jabalhud, and the Prophet’s Mosque.

Adam stated that each place visited holds significant importance to the tenets of the Islamic religion, noting that they would be rewarded for the visitation.

Some of the pilgrims who spoke in a telephone conversation applauded the Ondo State Muslim Welfare Board for the excellent organisation of their tour and for providing them with the opportunity to visit all the historical places.

In separate interviews with Mariam Sanusi, Sodiq Mariam, and Hajia Garuba Hamdalat, they said that the board’s hospitality exceeded their expectations and commended the State Governor, Mr Lucky Aiyedatiwa, for the outstanding care extended to them.
