“You are the first port of call or contact with the pilgrims. Their impression and perception of your action or activities will go a long way towards assessing the commission.

“If you get it right, we get it right; and on the contrary, if you get it wrong, the rest will just be about crisis management. Therefore, you must be up and doing to earn our reward here and that of Allah in the hereafter for treating his guests well,” he said.
