„I have performed Hajj last year, but this one was beautiful also. Group I Led performed rituals in Madinah and Mecca, we visited the grave of the Prophet Muhammed s.a.w.s, we were in mosques, we prayed and were near the harem of Kaaba“, said Muzaferija.
Talking about two accidents that happened in Mecca during this year’s Hajj, he added that such accidents are frequent and occur almost every year because pilgrims do not follow instructions on the movement.
“We didn’t have any problems, we led all groups as it was needed, our pilgrims had done well there, There are accidents every year, that is common“, said Muzaferija adding that each Muslim who could afford it, should perform Hajj.
