The Grand Mufti of Libya, Sadiq Al-Ghariani, has said that performing Umrah more than once is a clear waste of money, and it is better to pay to the people of the Gaza Strip and support the Palestinian resistance.

In a video clip posted on X, on Friday, March 22, Al-Ghariani explained, “There are people crowding to perform Umrah for the fifth or tenth time, and when they arrive in Makkah, they buy McDonald’s meals, which in turn transfers this money to support the Israeli army”.

He continued, “Muslims should not believe that crowding to perform Umrah is considered the highest level of worship, while the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip are exposed to annihilation because it is considered negligence and incorrect behaviour.”
