RIYADH — The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah clarified on Monday that it is not required to obtain a permit to offer prayers at the Grand Mosque in Makkah and the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah during the last ten days of the holy month of Ramadan.

The Department for Beneficiary Care Service under the ministry stated this through its official Twitter account in response to inquiries from worshipers. “It is not necessary to obtain a permit to perform prayers in the Two Holy Mosques, with a condition that the worshipers shall not have coronavirus infection or contact with a person infected with the virus,” it said in the statement.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Hajj revealed that a permit is mandatory either to perform Umrah or visit the Rawdah Sharif at the Prophet’s Mosque, and the appointment shall be taken through the Nusuk application or the Tawakkalna application, provided that there is no infection of coronavirus or contact with an infected person.
