Postponement of 6th Umrah Program

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Assalamu Alaikum.

I hope this message finds you in the best condition of health and Iman. Further to our earlier announcement for the 6th Umrah Program for Medical Stuents, we would like to announce to you the following:

Till this time only 3 IMAs managed to send to us the list of participants. There was no response from other IMAs. Some people had major difficulties in getting Umrah visa. We were surprised to find that Umrah visa is closed during the planned period for our program. This was different from our understanding of the new regulation which allows for Umra during the whole year except during the Hajj season. We tried our best to rectify the matter but without avail. In view of all this situation, we decided to postpone the 6th Umrah program for 2 months (April instead of February).

Thank you Wassalm.
