According to a foreign news agency, the Masjid al-Nabawi and Masjid al-Aqsa, like other mosques around the world, were closed to worshipers to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Easing of the lockdown in Saudi Arabia, the Masjid al-Nabawi, like other mosques, was reopened for prayers after two and a half months.
A large number of people came to the Prophet’s Mosque in groups to offer prayers. The mosque is open to 40% worshipers according to its capacity.
Precautions were taken to avoid coronavirus during the prayers, most of the worshipers wore masks and brought their “Jaye Namaz” with them while keeping a certain distance between them in the line-up.
