2023 Hajj: Ogun Pilgrims Visit Historical Sites In Medinah, Saudi Arabia


Ogun State Pilgrims have begun visitation otherwise known as (Zyarah), to some historical places in Medinah, so as  to enrich the pilgrim’s knowledge during holy pilgrimage to the kingdom of Saudi Arabia 

Head of Operations, Muslim Pilgrims’ Welfare Board, Imam Abdulfattah Buhari while addressing the pilgrims at Mountain Hud (Jabbal Uhud) one of the sites, said the visit was an important obligatory exercise which every pilgrim must perform. 

Buhari stated that the visit would also increase pilgrims’ faith and enable them believe in what they read in the Holy Quran, as well as revive the stories and history of the lifetime of Holy Prophet Muhammad and his followership (Sa'aba), as clearly stated in Suratul Imran, Chapter 3 vs 97.

He highlighted the efforts of Holy Prophet Muhammad at ensuring that Islam which is a religion of peace, achieves its aims and objectives, urging them to promote the religion in good light and emulate the virtue of the Messenger of Allah.

Buhari admonished them to heed to the rules and regulations of the officials so as not to go astray, enjoining them to make use of the opportunity of the Holy land to pray fervently for Ogun State and Nigeria as a whole.

Speaking on behalf of Pilgrims, Alhaja Simiat Oyerinde and Alhaji Adebanjo AbdulRauf, commended the officials for taking them round, promising to continue to comply with the directive of the officials. 

Some other places visited were the first Mosque built by Prophet Muhammad, Masjid Quba, as well as Masjid Qiblatain, Grave of Hamza and Martyrs of Uhud, among others.
