“I congratulate everyone on the advent of the blessed Eid al-Adha.. May God bring it back to us and you with goodness and blessings,” he added.

On Tuesday, Al Neyadi published a picture of Makkah.

“Today is Arafat Day, a pivotal day during Hajj, that reminds us that faith is not just about belief, but also action and reflection. May it inspire us all to strive for compassion, humility, and unity. Here’s a view of the holy site of Makkah🕋 that I captured yesterday,” Al Neyadi tweeted.

Emirati astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi made history on March 2 by becoming the first Arab to join a long-term space mission that will last six months as part of SpaceX’s crew.
