In Rabi’ al-Thani 1435H, corresponding to February 2014, the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Sacred Mosques launched an initiative for the simultaneous interpretation of the Friday Khutbahs delivered in the Two Sacred Mosques. This was based on a directive from the Custodian of the Two Sacred Mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, in order for the message of the Khutbah to reach non-Arabic speakers in their own languages.
The initiative was a great success and was met with widespread approval by the non-Arabic speakers who were able to listen to and understand the Friday Khutbah.
Because of this great success, the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Sacred Mosques began a second phase, namely broadcasting the Friday Khutbah in several languages live via the internet for the entire world to hear.
This is the initiative before you, and from Allah, the Almighty, comes guidance and success.
