Grand Mufti not giving Hajj sermon for the first time in 35 years



For the first time in 35 years Saudi grand mufti will not be delivering the Hajj sermon on youm-e-Arafat i.e on 9th Dhul-Haija, due to health reasons.

Grand Mufti Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh has annually addressed the faithful from the Namira Mosque in Mount Arafat for the peak of hajj, which this year falls on Sunday.

He was appointed Grand Mufti in 1999 after the death of his predecessor Sheikh Abdel Aziz bin Baz.
