Sheikh Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais, head of the presidency told about the prayers at the two holy mosques. He said that only presidency officials and sterilization workers will offer prayers at the Holy Mosque of Makkah and Madinah during Ramadan.

Earlier, Dr. Abdul Latif Al-Sheikh, Saudi Minister of Islamic Affairs, talked to a news portal regarding prayers. He said, “The suspension of performing the five daily prayers at mosques is more important than the suspension of Taraweeh prayers.”

“We ask Allah the Almighty to accept Taraweeh prayers whether held at mosques, or homes, which we think is better for people’s health. We ask Allah the Almighty to accept prayers from all of us and protect humanity from this epidemic that hit the entire world,” Al-Sheikh added.
