Sara Omar, grandma of US President Barack Obama, has emphasized
the significance of the Prophet Muhammad exhibition in Makkah (Mecca) and said
it reflects the moderate teachings of Islam that calls for tolerance and
Sara has come to Makkah with her son Saeed Obama, uncle of President Obama and her grandson Mousa Obama to perform Umrah (a pilgrimage to holy Mecca, Saudi Arabia, performed by Muslims that can be undertaken at any time of the year, in contrast to the Hajj.).
She commended the Saudi government’s efforts to expand the two holy mosques.
Sara and her family
members visited the Prophet’s show, which is located in the Naseem district of
Makkah, for two hours. “I am very happy to visit this exhibition, which is a
good example for the propagation of Islam in a modern way, supported by
scientific and authentic documents.”
Obama’s grandma also expressed hope that the exhibition would visit other countries with the support of the Saudi government in order to remove the misunderstandings about the divine religion.
