“Tabung Haji and I are closely cooperating with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to obtain the latest information about the situation arising from the conflict between Iran and Israel.

“The information we receive indicates that the situation is under control, and I assure you that the welfare and safety of the Hajj pilgrims are our priorities, whether at the level of the Saudi Arabian government, the Malaysian government, or, of course, Tabung Haji.

“We want to ensure the safety of Hajj pilgrims, and if that is the principle, then Tabung Haji will closely monitor the situation in the Middle East, and we will inform the pilgrims of developments from time to time,” he said after inaugurating the inaugural Hajj course for the Federal Territory on Saturday night.

He advised prospective Hajj pilgrims nationwide to continue attending the Hajj courses provided to ensure the smooth conduct of the pilgrimage.
