The Oslo Imam Ali Center (IAC) will hold a memorial service for the innocent victims of this year’s Hajj tragedies and sympthy with their families and relatives on Thursday October 8st simultaneously with Du’a Kumayl. This program begins after Maghrib / Isha prayer at 19:00 pm.
As is known, during this year’s Hajj in Mecca and on Eid Ghorban when pilgrims were headed to the ritual “stoning of the devil” at Mina, thousands of lives were lost as a result of overcrowding.
During this year’s Hajj in Mecca, thousands of people were killed in the crush during the symbolic stoning of the devil at Mina, the worst tragedy during the hajj for 25 years. The tragedy occurred on Sept. 24, when large crowds of pilgrims converged on streets with few exits in a tent city in Mina. According to Iranian officials, at least 464 Iranians have lost their lives in the incident, while 150 others have been wounded.
The Oslo Imam Ali Center (IAC) extends its heartfelt condolences to the Imam Mahdi (as) and to all the Muslims around the world, particularly the families of those lost in this tragedy. We ask Almighty Allah (swt) to elevate their status and give patience to their families.
