It has been a wait that for two years since the pilgrimage for all Muslims in the world has not been carried out as in previous years due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Various efforts have been made both from the government side as well as from the congregation and the committee to prepare themselves as well as possible so that when they arrive at the time of departure, they can perform worship of hajj optimally.

This year, the Saudi Arabian government has allowed permission for the pilgrimage to pilgrims around the world, not least for the prospective Hajj pilgrims of the Nurul Jannah Mosque in Petrokimia Gresik, which was originally planned to depart in 2020, finally officially departed on Thursday, June 9, 2022 in Nurul Jannah Mosque area. This event was also attended by the Director of Finance and General Affairs of Petrokimia Gresik, Budi Wahju Soesilo and the Deputy Regent of Gresik, Hj. Amintun Habibah.

"Hopefully it will be a mabrur pilgrimage. I hope to meet in Makkah because I am going there in group 31,” said the Deputy Regent.

The departure of the Prospective Hajj Pilgrims of Petrokimia Gresik Mosque is scheduled to depart in two batches and enter the first batch of the East Java Hajj Candidates, namely the first batch on 11 June 2022 and the second batch on 13 June 2022.

This year's Hajj Guidance Group (KBIH) of Nural Jannah Mosque Petrokimia Gresik Mosque has dispatched 106 Prospective Hajj Pilgrims (PHJ).
