Aspiring pilgrims from Kaduna State have been urged to strictly adhere to the teachings of Islam during the pilgrimage.
The Executive Secretary of Kaduna State Pilgrims Welfare Agency, Yakubu Arrigasiyyu, stated this while addressing prospective pilgrims undergoing screening at the Hajj Camp in Mando, Kaduna.
According to him, it is important for them to familiarize themselves with all the rituals of Hajj so that they can successfully perform the pilgrimage.
“This year’s hajj fare is on the high side, it would not be right for you to converge on the Holy City and not perform the pilgrimage well. It is important that you meet officials who are experienced and knowledgeable to guide you on all the rituals expected of you,” he said.
