Muscat Grand Mall organises Hajj Educational Event

Students and schools from across the capital invited to participate in virtual Hajj, to be organised at the Mall

With Eid Al Adha just around the corner and the Hajj season ongoing, Muscat Grand Mall is organising a special religious-educational event for students in the Sultanate, within its premises. Running until the third day of Eid, the virtual event will take place in the Main Atrium.

The Hajj is the annual pilgrimage, undertaken by Muslims across the world, as they congregate in Mecca. As a small initiative to inform children about the practices of the Hajj, MGM will recreate this holy journey in a virtual manner.

The rituals at the event will be created using carefully decorated cardboard props and children will be taught about the Islamic observances. Muscat Grand Mall will provide Hajj garments to the participants and activities will include taking turns around a representation of the Kaaba, participating in the Sa’ai and reciting verses among other initiatives. The students will learn more about Hajj by going through the stages as well as understand the stories and significance of each custom.

The Mall will also provide brochures and other educational materials for students to make them conscious of the religious practices from an early age and instil the value of respect.

Home to over 140 international brands, many of which have entered the Oman market for the first time – Muscat Grand Mall has increasingly become the retail destination of choice among the people of the Sultanate. With this influx of new global outlets, increasing the choice for customers, the Mall has witnessed a steady boost of visitors.
