(MENAFN - Arab News) The Presidency of the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques has executed a comprehensive plan to provide the best services to Umrah visitors for the entire Umrah season which ends on Aug. 6 2016.
The Chief of the Presidency Dr. Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais said that 4,155 workers including technical labor, clerics, men and women will be working around the clock for this season performing various services for Umrah visitors. He explained that the foremost service is providing guidance on Umrah rites. More than a hundred clerics will give sermons at different places around the Holy Mosque giving guide lines on Umrah and enlightening the visitors on the correct way to practice Islam. The presidency will continue to distribute pamphlets published in Arabic, Urdu, Turkish, Bengali, English and Persian. Sudais said there will be over a million pamphlets containing the essage of monotheism and how to perform Umrah. Other subjects include expiation in case of any shortcomings in Umrah rites.

He also said that the clerics have been provided with a telephone network of about 150 phones which the visitors can use to call on matters related to Islam.
There are 10,000 manually operated wheel chairs available free of cost for the old and the infirm. Motorized wheel chairs can be obtained from the first floor of the Al-Safa gate for a fee of SR50.
The Holy Mosque now has 25,000 thermoses containing zamzam water. The presidency's laboratory ensures that there is no contamination of the water before it is supplied to the worshippers. About 1,000 workers will distribute the thermoses while the disposable plastic glasses will be used once only. Zamzam water can be had from all floors of the Holy Mosques and even from the open plazas.
