On October 7th, Paiboon Upattising, the President of Phuket Provincial Administrative Organization or PPAO, presided over the opening of training for Muslims in Phuket on how to prepare themselves before going to attend the Haj in Saudi-Arabia this month.
Jirasak Tortip, the instructor of the training said that the Muslims who could attend the Haj had to be ready in economic status, health, and mind. They also needed to know the procedure during ceremonies in the Haj. Without these things, people would not be considered to complete the Haj. So in this training, they would be trained on what they should know before attending the ceremony and how to be healthy while they were there. Moreover, the participants were trained in the good morals of Islam as well.
