The family appeared to have been hosted by the Saudi government for hajj. Saeed thanked King Abdullah for his “kind hospitality,” the paper said.

Sarah Omar, 88, who was on hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, told the Al-Qatan Saudi daily: “I prayed for my grandson Barack to convert to Islam”.

The paper said that Ms Omar was in Saudi Arabia on pilgrimage along with her son, Mr Obama’s uncle Saeed Hussein Obama, and four of her grandchildren.

Ms Omar told the newspaper that she could only discuss hajj matters and would not comment on Mr Obama’s politics. From the Telegraph

We ran a post last year about Grammy doing the  Hajj bit and we got hacked into. Or was it wordpress? It did have some sarcasm and that portion was removed.  This time we won’t use a Saudi Newspaper source. Not to worry Grammy– he already is.
