84 Umrah pilgrims return home

THE fourth group of pilgrims on a two-week Umrah in the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah under At-Taqwa Travel Tours returned safely to Brunei yesterday.

The 84 pilgrims were welcomed by officers and staff members of At-Taqwa Travel Tours, who presented them with souvenirs on arrival at the Brunei International Airport.

A Doa Selamat was also recited to bless the pilgrims.

One of the pilgrims, Haji Marzuki bin Haji Mohd Salleh, said it was his second trip to the holy land after performing the Haj 30 years ago. “Alhamdulillah, I felt humbled, yet grateful, to be back there after an absence of so many years.”

“This time, I made the trip to the holy land with my family, which made the experience even more memorable,” he said.

He also expressed his gratitude to At-Taqwa Travel Tours for its efficient services and ensuring their welfare, while performing the Umrah.

Throughout the religious tour, the fourth group of pilgrims was headed by Mohd Rakin bin Meludin, a Travel Consultant at At-Taqwa Travel Tours.
