arrival in Jeddah of the official Moroccan delegation

The official Moroccan delegation for the pilgrimage arrived Sunday morning in Jeddah in Saudi Arabia to perform the rite of Hajj for the year 1443 of the Hegira.

Upon arrival at King Abdelaziz International Airport in Jeddah, the delegation led by Mr. Abdellatif Ouahbi, Minister of Justice, was welcomed by Mustapha Mansouri, Ambassador of His Majesty the King to Saudi Arabia, and Ibrahim Ajouli Consul General of the Kingdom in Jeddah.

Before the departure of the official delegation from Morocco, Mr. Ouahbi declared that “it is an honor to be appointed by HM King Mohammed VI, Amir Al-Mouminine, to lead the official delegation of Moroccan pilgrims to the Holy Places of Islam, in order to ensure coordination between the various contingents of Moroccan pilgrims and provide them with assistance and support so that they can perform their rite in complete peace of mind”.

In a statement to M24, the minister highlighted the high concern and benevolence with which HM the King surrounded Moroccan pilgrims, indicating that the services available by the Saudi authorities to pilgrims will allow them to perform this religious rite in the best conditions.

The first group of Moroccan pilgrims arrived on June 21 in Medina, Saudi Arabia. HM the King had sent, on June 20, a message to Moroccan pilgrims to go to the Holy Places of Islam for the year 1443 H, the reading of which was given by the Minister of Habous and Islamic Affairs, Mr. Ahmad Toufiq.

In this message, the Sovereign had called on Moroccan pilgrims to represent their country as they should, by giving it an honorable image consistent with the strong adherence of its people to the values โ€‹โ€‹of tolerance and moderation, to its attachment to doctrinal unity and the principle of the happy medium and the rejection of any hint of extremism.

HM the King, Amir Al-Mouminine, had invited the pilgrims to be “ambassadors of your country in the embodiment of these noble values, faithful in this to your cultural identity and your national and doctrinal unity”.

HM the King had, moreover, stressed that he had given His High Instructions to the Minister of Endowments and Islamic Affairs “so that he constantly monitors to assess all the means of care and to ensure all the conditions of comfort, so that you could perform your rites in an exemplary manner”.
