Cleaning the Masjid al-Haram with the staff of the Imam of the Kaaba

The Imam of the Kaaba and President of the General Presidency, Dr. Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais, along with the staff, sprayed and cleaned the Kaaba and Ibrahim's house.

According to the report of Arab News, the Imam of the Kaaba, Dr. Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais, along with the cleaning staff of the Masjid Al-Haram, cleaned the Kaaba and the place of Ibrahim before the Isha prayers and took part in the disinfection work.

According to the report, under the direction of the health authorities, several security measures have been taken in the Masjid-ul-Haram to prevent the spread of Code-19, including keeping a distance between the worshipers.

The cleaning of the Masjid al-Haram is one of the responsibilities of the General Presidency.

In Saudi Arabia, the Coronavirus has temporarily banned the entry of ordinary worshipers to other mosques, including the Prophet's Mosque and the Grand Mosque, and restricted congregational prayers in all mosques.

The Saudi government has also temporarily banned Umrah due to the coronavirus, while the Saudi government has not yet signed a Hajj agreement with any country.

Prior to Madhan, Saudi Arabia had a strict lockdown, but the lockdown was eased due to Ramadan.

The government eased the lockdown and allowed short gatherings for Taraweeh prayers in other mosques, including the Prophet's Mosque. However, the government had instructed mosque employees to attend Taraweeh prayers instead of ordinary worshipers.

In Masjid-ul-Haram and Masjid-e-Nabawi, only the staff is allowed to perform short Taraweeh.

The Saudi government imposed a curfew earlier this month over the coronavirus.

A statement from the Saudi Interior Ministry said that during the curfew, some important people would be allowed to leave their homes and buy food and medicine.

Last week, King Rawa Shah Salman issued orders to partially lift the curfew in areas other than Mecca.

The Saudi News Agency said the curfew would be lifted in Saudi Arabia from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., while wholesale and retail stores would be allowed to open from 6 Ramadan to 20 Ramadan (April 29 to May 13). ۔

In Saudi Arabia, the coronavirus has closed not only holy sites but also major economic centers and hotels, as well as suspended flights.

Shah Salman has already warned of more difficult situations in taking action against the Coronavirus, while the government is facing double the economic loss due to the virus as well as falling oil prices.

Saudi Arabia is the most affected country by the coronavirus in the Gulf, with 18,811 cases confirmed so far.

The death toll from the coronavirus in Saudi Arabia has so far been reported at 144, with 117 of the patients being treated in critical condition.
