Telangana NRI Forum (TNRIF) Riyadh presented certificates of appreciation to the volunteers who served during Hajj 2023, in recognition of their valuable services. The felicitation ceremony was held at the Success International School, Mansurah.
The chief guest of the event, convener of Steering Committee of Indian Embassy, Riyadh, Mohammed Zaigham Khan, said that serving the pilgrims is a praiseworthy service. Pilgrims stay at a new place to perform Haj rituals and face difficulties like health issues, losing way back to their tent, etc. Hajj volunteers offer them water, drinks, etc. and guide them in case of losing their way, refer them to the hospital if they face any health issue etc. He said that it is a blessing for the pilgrims to have these services by volunteers.
Maulana Aftab Alam Madani praised the government of Saudi Arabia for the unprecedented arrangements for Hajj. He said that the days of Hajj (tashreeq) are considered as the most pious days of the Islamic year. The reward of good deeds during these days is very high. Allah may reward the haj volunteers with the ajar equivalent to the reward of performing haj. He praised and congratulated the president of TNRIF Abdul Jabbar, other office bearers and all the volunteers.
Some of the volunteers shared their experiences on field.
