As the Hajj season approaches the King of Saudi Arabia, King Salman has sent invitations to 2,322 individuals to attend Hajj 2024.

Among this count, around 1000 invitations have been sent to the relatives of individuals who have been affected due to the Palestinian conflict in Gaza and Rafah.

The invitations have been dispatched to more than 88 countries from where a total of 1300 individuals have been called upon by the King to perform Hajj.

Supervised by the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Dawah, and Guidance, this act of hospitality is a part of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques’ Guests Program for Umrah and Hajj.
