The participants in the conference expressed their rejection of the practices of the Saudi authorities using Hajj and Umrah against Muslims who oppose the policy of the Kingdom. They also refused to exploit the hajj revenues in the Saudi war on Yemen and diverted them to a US arsenal of billions of dollars. The participants talked about the Islamic importance of Hajj and Umrah from a historical perspective, where the historical development of Hajj and Umrah has been described since the imposition of God on Muslims as stated in the Surah Al-Imran, which says: (9), passing through the Sahaba, may Allah be pleased with them and the caliphs, and reaching the rule of the Al-Saud today. The participants stressed that practical steps must be taken to involve Islamic institutions and governments in managing Islamic sentiments in Saudi Arabia after the current administration failed to manage the poet properly to ensure successful Hajj and Umrah seasons without disasters and violations.

Moreover, all Muslims are equal in Hajj. It should be noted that Al Haramain Watch was established in the beginning of 2018 with the aim of exerting pressure to ensure Saudi Arabia’s good management of the holy sites and the preservation of Islamic historical sites and not politicizing Hajj and Umrah. The Commission says that its depth is represented by all Islamic countries, and that it is keen to ensure that Saudi Arabia does not harm holy sites, whether it is inefficient management or any kind of management based on policies linked to individuals or influential people.
