Namiq Abishev told IQNA that he teaches the Holy Quran in Russian to different groups of the pilgrims.
Having gone to Saudi Arabia for Umrah pilgrimage during the last days of the holy month of Ramadan, he believes that the period is a good opportunity to get the pilgrims more familiar with the Divine Word.
Most of the Hajj and Umrah pilgrims from Russia are religious figures of the country, he said.
Islam in Russia is the nation's second most widely professed religion. According to a nationwide survey conducted in 2012, Muslims in Russia numbered 9,400,000 or 6.5% of the total population.
