The General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques is embarking on its most ambitious translation endeavor to date: the translation of the Arafat sermon into 20 languages, with the aim of reaching a staggering one billion viewers worldwide.

President Sheikh Dr. Abdulrahman bin Abdulaziz Al-Sudais emphasized the significance of this project in spreading the message of Islam and serving pilgrims

By making the Arafat sermon accessible to people of diverse linguistic backgrounds, the initiative aims to foster greater understanding and unity among individuals and communities worldwide.

The Arafat sermon holds immense importance in the Islamic faith, delivered annually during the Hajj pilgrimage

It serves as a powerful reminder of the principles of peace, compassion, and unity that lie at the heart of Islam. By translating this sermon into multiple languages, the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques hopes to amplify its impact and reach a broader audience with its message of harmony and goodwill. The sermon usually happens on the 9th day of Dhul Hijjah every year, and is done usually after the Dhuhr (midday prayer).

This initiative underscores the leadership’s unwavering commitment to promoting the true teachings of Islam and fostering an environment of tolerance and understanding.
