Standard Chartered Saadiq recently organised a session, titled ‘Road to Kaaba – Learn about the holy journey’.

Clients who are planning to attend Hajj or Umrah – either this year or in the future – and individuals interested in learning more about the holy journey were invited to participate, said a press release.

The session was held at the head office of Standard Chartered in Dhaka.

Md Zahidur Rahman, director of Quran Teaching, Research, and Training Centre, led the session.

He has over 10 years of experience in organising sessions on Hajj and Umrah and contributes to training around 1500 individuals each year on the core tenets of the holy journey.

“Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam and has a significant influence in a Muslim’s life. It intensifies a Muslim’s faith and transforms him to become a better human being who is free of pride and does greater good to the society, which is indeed the ultimate success of a Muslim,” said Zahidur.

Sabbir Ahmed, head of consumer, private and business banking of Standard Charted Bangladesh, said, “Through sessions such as this, we hope to help our clients to live their values beyond their everyday banking needs.”
