Saudi suspends praying in two holy mosques during Ramzan

In order to curb the spread of coronavirus, Saudi Arabia on Monday extended the suspension of prayers in the country’s two holy mosques- the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque- during the month of Ramzan.

President General of the mosques, Sheikh Dr Abdulrahman bin Abdulaziz Al-Sudais said that Masjid Al-Haram in Makkah and Al Masjid Al-Nabawi will broadcast the call for prayer throughout the month but would remain closed to worshippers, Arab News reported.

Saudi Arabia had barred people from performing prayers inside mosques last month, to prevent the spreading of coronavirus pandemic.
