Association of British Hujjaj (pilgrims) UK expressed deepest sorrow and sadness on the death of King Fahd Bin Abdul Aziz, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, in its executive committee meeting held in Birmingham, UK.
Khalid Pervez General secretary of Association of British Hujjaj (pilgrims) UK said, ‘We would like to send our deepest condolences to the kingdom and people of Saudi Arabia and we all mourn the death of king Fahd Bin Abdul Aziz. No doubt he was a great king and truly great leader. It is a tremendous loss and tragedy to the Muslim ummah. We will always remember his dedication and commitment to Muslim ummah specifically to facilitate the Hajj arrangements for millions of pilgrims from all over the world. Ummah has greatly appreciated his personal interests and efforts to expand the Harmain-e-Sharifain in Makkah and Madina. He was a true servant of Harmain-e-Sharifain and it is on his credit to double the size of the Haram in Makkah to 3.5 million square feet to accommodate one million pilgrims to allow them to perform Hajj/Umra in comfort and safety and increase the size of the Prophet’s Mosque in Madina to facilitate about half a million people to pray in the mosque at a time.
‘We will always remember him in our prayers. May Allah almighty rest his soul in peace’ said, Khalid Pervez.
