He prayed to God to assist all Muslims to take maximum advantage of the benefits of Ramadan.


“It is from God’s grace upon us that the holy month of Ramadan brings us relief after hardship with the receding of the coronavirus pandemic,” he said in a message on the advent of the holy month.


He thanked God for the great success achieved through making tremendous efforts in containing the pandemic and overcoming its adverse effects.


“We are proud that God has honored us with granting the opportunity to serve the Two Holy Mosques and Hajj and Umrah pilgrims and visitors to the Holy Mosques.”
