Hafar Al-Batin is a city located in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, which is the country’s largest province in size, near the border of Iraq and Kuwait. With a population of 600 thousand it is the largest city in the province. Due to its location on the pilgrimage route throughout history, Hafar Al-Batin is of paramount importance.

Pilgrims travelling from Iraq, Kuwait, Iran, and Eastern Anatolia complained about the lack of water on the route, which compelled a companion of prophet Muhammad, Abu-Musa al-Asha’ari to dig new wells in the Al-Batin valley along the pilgrimage route. Today the city, which was established around this valley, is a trade center that manufactures and sells oil products.
