The 14th session of the Summit Conference of the OIC hosted by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud will begin at midnight.

The Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) is a Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca that can be undertaken at any time of the year, unlike the Hajj which has a fixed time.

The Hajj is the “major” pilgrimage which is compulsory for every able-bodied Muslim who can afford it while the Umrah is optional but recommended.

Buhari, who is expected to return to Abuja after the OIC summit on Sunday, would hold bilateral meetings with some world leaders on margin of the OIC summit.
