Rasa – Ayatollah Sobhani emphasized on the protection of the dignity and security of the ‎Hajj pilgrims and considered it necessary to make use of all of the capacities to hold the Hajj ‎pilgrimage in the best possible manner. ‎

RNA – Hujjat al-Islam Sayyed Abdol-Fattah Navvab, the representative of the Supreme ‎Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Hajj and Pilgrimage Affairs, visited and held discussions ‎with Ayatollah Jafar Sobhani.‎

Ayatollah Sobhani expressed his pleasure in the choice of Hujjat al-Islam Navvab‎ as the ‎representative of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Hajj and Pilgrimage Affairs‎ ‎and said, “In some Islamic narrations, it’s said that some people even saved their income ‎for several years in order to go on the Hajj. This is a religious duty that may be granted to a ‎Muslim once in his or her lifetime.” ‎

The renowned source of emulation emphasized upon the use of all capacities to hold the ‎Hajj pilgrimage in the best possible manner, the carefully monitoring of the Hajj issues and ‎considered the importance of the provisions of the Federation of Islamic Medical ‎Associations (FIMA) agreement between Iran and Saudi Arabia on the Hajj pilgrimage. ‎

Emphasizing that the honour and dignity of the pilgrims and the safety of pilgrims are among ‎the most important issues, he emphasized upon the preventing propagation by Persian-‎speaking Wahhabi propagandists in Jannat al-Baqi cemetery, in accordance with the ‎agreements.‎

Ayatollah Sobhani also stressed upon the inspection the actions and rites of the pilgrims by ‎the clerics heading the caravans, especially in regard to the “Rami al-Jamarat” (Stoning of the ‎Devil) ritual on the day of Eid al-Adha to prevent bitter events such as those which we ‎witnessed in in previous years.‎

On September 24, 2015, thousands of people lost their lives in the deadly crush after Saudi ‎authorities blocked a road in Mina during the Rami al-Jamarat ritual, forcing large crowds of ‎pilgrims to collide.‎

The crush was the deadliest incident in the history of the pilgrimage. According to an ‎Associated Press count based on official statements from the 36 countries that lost citizens ‎in the disaster, more than 2,400 pilgrims were killed in the incident.‎
