Following are excerpts:
Abdulellah Al-Dosari: With regard to the Hajj incidents and everything that happened there – we believe in the judgment and fate ordained by Allah, and we pray for Allah to have mercy upon those who have died, and to compensate their families. Having said that, it is important to note that there were also Iranians who died in this incident. Many fingers are pointed at them, claiming that they were responsible. We heard them scream in the media, in the days leading up to the incident, that they feared that something terrible would happen. Many Iranian pilgrims – about 300 – were killed in this stampede. Some of them were diplomats or worked for the Iranians diplomatic corps, and the Iranian media published their pictures and names. Praise be to Allah, who relieved Islam and the Muslims from their evil. We pray that Allah will usher them into Hell for all eternities.
