MOSCOW, September 12. /TASS/. The pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia has ended this year without any incidents, Grand Mufti of Russia Rawil Gaynetdin, who carried out a service at the Moscow Cathedral Mosque marking the Eid al-Adha holiday, said on Monday.

"Yesterday the annual hajj of Muslims to the blessed lands ended. We sent 16,200 pilgrims from Russia this year and asked them to pray for our Russia and ask Allah for prosperity, peace and well-being for our peoples and our great country Russia," Gaynetdin told reporters. "The hajj was held very calmly and without any incidents this year."

The Hajj is one of the five major deeds in Islam. It presupposes that each believer with the physical and financial capability to make the pilgrimage should do so at least once in a lifetime.
