“STAKEHOLDERS WORKSHOP:COMMERCIALIZATION OF HAJJ RESEARCH”
1-3 May 2007 (14-16 Rabi’ Al-Akhir 1428H)The Grand Coral Hotel,
Makkah Al-Mukarromah, Kingdom of Saudi ArabiaPrepared by: Prof. Kamarulazizi Ibrahim & Khairur Rahim Bin Ahmad Hilme1.0 INTRODUCTION
The increasing figures of Muslims requesting to perform Hajj every year had lead theOrganization of Islamic Conference (OIC) to limit the number of pilgrims to 2 million per season. Even with this limitation we can see that the available resources are nearlyexhausted. Too many people with similar objectives packed into a small compound createdchaos. Increase in space availability is one way to solve this problem, but this action willexpand the distance and cause further inconvenience to the pilgrims. To understand andsolve these problems, many research projects had been conducted in Makah, Mina, Arafah,Muzdalifah and other holy places in Makkah during the past hajj season. In 1427H USM incollaboration with UQU had carry out studies in 4 critical areas of interest which aremobilization systems in Masjidil Haram, solid waste management in Makah, education andawareness and women hajj facilities.As a continuation of USM-UQU joint research activities, Intelligent and Integrated HajjMobilization System (IIHMS) project was proposed to the OIC under the framework of theOIC Ten-Year Plan of Action. The project was selected as part of the OIC’s Early HarvestProject (EHP) which will be implemented immediately starting this year. As an EHP theIIHMS project includes both technological and commercialization activities that will show its’first output within the first 15 months of implementation.IIHMS has specified 5 areas of interest - which are Training & Education, Surveillance &Monitoring, Mobility, Waste Management, and Local Amenities - that needed immediateintervention to improve the Hajj-activities management and the infrastructure within the Al-Haram and the Masyair areas. Islamic Development Bank has allocated funding for theexecution of the project that will be completed in 36 months after its commencement.Since IIHMS will affect all Muslims directly or indirectly, as a first step, a stakeholder’sworkshop was conducted, to collect views and ideas from participants in plotting the courseand direction of this project. The stakeholders are defined as everyone who is involved -directly or indirectly – with Hajj. Therefore, the stakeholders are the pilgrims, Hajj organizers,Hajj Mutawwiffin, the Saudi Government and authorities, service providers, Ulama,researchers, investors, and etc. The general purpose of the stakeholder workshop is todiscuss the stakeholders’ roles in order to implement the finding of the conductedresearches in term of product development and commercialization. Through theimplementation of IIHMS, OIC Countries will benefit from capacity building and technologytransfers, apart from the new service and upgraded infrastructure in Makkah and Madinah.
