What is aga?
Agha is an old position, but it does not exist today, as it refers to a man who dedicates himself and his life to serving the Prophet’s Chamber and the Prophet’s Mosque.
The job of the Agha also includes carrying the keys of the room and receiving guests from the chiefs and others, and he is one of those who are in attendance at the Prophet’s Mosque.
