Lagos state government says elderly pilgrims would receive special treatment as they embark on Hajj rites at Mount Arafat and Muzdalifa.
Speaking during an interview with newsmen after a sensitisation symposium, Chairman Ad-hoc Committee of Muslims Pilgrims Welfare Board, Ahmed Jebe, also said they the Board was prepared to ensure safety and create comfortable conditions for their pilgrims.
Mr Jebe urged the pilgrims to prepare to be humble with the diversity of people they will come across during the journey.
“Humans are of different culture, some of which might provoke other people’s behaviour, which needed to be absorbed.
“The satisfaction lies in the completion of the tasks and then using the life lessons they learnt during the exercise to make the post-Hajj life fruitful,” he pointed out.
Mr Jebe called on the pilgrims to dedicate their time in performing the rituals and encouraged them distance themselves from distractions during the exercise.
