This year’s pilgrimage season has begun and pilgrims from all over the world are arriving to perform the Hajj. Pilgrims from Iraq are flooding into Medina before going to the holy city of Mecca. In fact, it is expected that 25,000 Iraqi pilgrims participate in this year’s pilgrimage, and Zain Iraq is keen to provide its subscribers among them with the best offers, in order to keep them in constant contact with their families during that time.
Zain Iraq’s offers to all of its subscribers that are visiting the House of Allah include special discounts and exceptional prices that reach 30% of the cost of call minutes to Iraq when using Zain network, and 50% on the cost of online data. This is part of Zain Iraq’s determination to keep its subscribers in constant contact with their families and businesses wherever they go as well as sharing with them all their special occasions, especially during Hajj.
Dr. Haider Radhi Chief Operating Officer at Zain Iraq said, "Hajj season is a very unique season for Muslims, bringing millions of believers from around the world to perform Hajj in a distinctive spiritual atmosphere. We are absolutely determined to keep the Iraqi pilgrims in close contact with the world while performing Hajj. We are happy to offer them special discounts and offers on all our services."
Adding that "these offers were created based on the needs of the visitors of the House of Allah during the pilgrimage season, including both call and internet services. They have been increasingly embraced by the pilgrims, especially social media platforms that depend on the internet data service."
The first flight of Iraqi pilgrims to Medina was on Saturday, the 13th of August, joining millions of pilgrims from around the world to perform Hajj and visit the House of Allah.
