Two digital platforms for Hajj

The Ministry of Culture and Information (MoCI) of Saudi Arabia has launched two digital platforms in the lead-up to the Hajj, which will provide information and insights to pilgrims in Mariah, making their lives easier along with the worldwide audience and international media.

SaudiWelcomesTheWorld.org conveyed a message of compassion and love. The platform provides an open window onto their journeys and invites the world to together learn and share in the true meaning and values of Islam.

It complements the media portal Hajj2017.org which provides information, updates and news about Hajj 2017. Through this portal, journalists will be able to access and download media materials such as images, infographics and press releases. The portal will also allow users access to all official live stream channels.

The portal will be a good educational platform too.

Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam and comprises a journey to Makkah to perform religious rituals described in the Koran. Every adult Muslim is obligated to make the pilgrimage at least once in their lives with basic conditions applied that they should be physically and financially able.
