    “We give gratitude to Allah despite the obstacle and pray Allah to accept our sacrifices. We ask Him to accept ibadat of the selected Hujjaj, blessed by the Almighty Himself to worship Him on the plains of Arafat this 2020. May He grant them Hajj mabrur and clear the path for the rest of His worshippers to humble themselves before Him in the next 2021 Hajj season.
