While in Saudi Arabia, Mujahid also held talks with Saudi Arabian Islamic Affairs, Dakwah and Guidance Minister Sheikh Abdullatif bin Abdulaziz Al-Sheikh in Riyadh, before returning to Malaysia.
He said a memorandum of understanding (MoU) would be signed between Malaysia and Saudi Arabia in the near future involving the interests of both countries in the administration of Islamic affairs.
“We also had a long discussion on global issues especially on extremism and Islamophobia.
"I also took the opportunity to share with him (Sheikh Abdullatif) the new policies of the Islamic administration which have been implemented including the ‘gagasan rahmah’, ‘maqasid syariah’ and Malaysian model," he said.
Mujahid expressed his gratitude to the government of Saudi Arabia for the excellent facilities and arrangements provided to ensure comfort and safety of the pilgrims.
