He advised that Muslims should unite to address the issues faced by the ummah.
Calling people to follow the teachings of Quran and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), Sheikh said Muslims should ask Allah alone for help.
Vast crowds of Muslim pilgrims, all dressed in white, flocked from early to Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia’s west to take part in the main rituals of the annual hajj.
Many pilgrims had camped overnight in the sprawling plain surrounding Mount Arafat but the majority began arriving at dawn.
