Introducing Rabi Ali, a 103-Year-Old from Kurdistan, Who Embarked on the Hajj Journey, Becoming the Oldest Participant This Year

Rabi Ali, a remarkable resident of Iraqi Kurdistan, has finally been granted permission to embark on the Hajj pilgrimage this year. At the age of 103, he had previously been denied the opportunity three times due to his advanced age. Now, filled with joy, Rabi Ali is immensely grateful for the chance to fulfill this important Islamic journey after patiently waiting for three years.

Expressing his gratitude to God, Rabi Ali cherishes the opportunity to travel and partake in Hajj, an immensely significant event for Muslims worldwide.

Karwan Stoney, the Media Officer of the Hajj Mission in the Kurdistan Region, highlights that Rabi Ali holds the distinction of being the oldest individual from the Kurdistan Region of Iraq to visit the sacred Kaaba. The Saudi authorities have eliminated the age requirement for Hajj pilgrims, enabling elderly individuals like Rabi Ali to be approved for this sacred pilgrimage.

Residing in a humble house in the Juman district of the Kurdistan region, Rabi Ali enjoys a picturesque view of Iraq’s highest mountain peak. His official identity card indicates his birth date as July 1st, 1920.
