The Saudi government has decided to translate the Hajj sermon in 10 different languages this year, including Urdu.
According to the General Affairs of the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque Sheikh Dr. Abdul Rahman bin Abdulaziz Al Sudais said that the Hajj Sermon will be broadcast in ten languages to spread the message of Islam to audiences all over the world.
This year the Hajj Sermon will be broadcast in Urdu, English, Persian, Bengali, Turkish, French, Chinese, Russian, Hausa, and Malay, told Dr. Abdul Rahman bin Abdulaziz Al Sudais.
The Hajj means ‘pilgrimage’ to the holy city of Makkah in Arabic and must be performed yearly by every Muslim who is physically and financially sound, during the first ten days of the holy month of Dhu al-Hijjah, the last month of the Islamic lunar calendar.
Due to the outbreak of coronavirus, the Saudi government has only allowed its 10,000 residents to perform Hajj this year.
