New converts who are selected to perform the haj this year are advised to take the golden opportunity of becoming Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala's guest by being closer to Allah and increase one's religious deeds such as performing the umrah and praying at Masjidil Haram Al-Masjid An-Nabawi. This was underlined by Awang Haji Abd Rajid bin Haji Mohd Salleh, Director of the Islamic Da'wah Centre at the closing ceremony of the Haj Intensive Course for New Converts who will perform the haj this year.
According to Awang Hj Abd Rajid, the intending pilgrims should fully focus on performing the haj in order to obtain a blessed haj.
At the ceremony, 10 intending haj pilgrims received certificates. The function coincided with the Doa Kesyukuran ceremony organised by the Muallaf Development Section of the Islamic Da'wah Centre.
