Over 2,5 million worshipers, including Umrah pilgrims and visitors, attended Khatm Al-Qur’an prayers on Wednesday, 28th night of the holy month of Ramadan, at the Grand Mosque in Makkah.
Khatm Al-Qur’an prayers mark the conclusion of recitation of the whole Qur’an during night prayers of Taraweeh.
Sheikh Abdurahman Al-Sudais, head of the Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques, led the prayers at the Grand Mosque where more than two million faithful joined him in offering the prayers.
The Two Holy Mosques were packed with worshippers and the courtyards as well as the surrounding streets leading to them were overflowed.
The faithful experienced their exalted spiritual moments in an atmosphere of tranquility, serenity, peace and security provided by the Saudi authorities.
Leading the prayers, Sheikh Al-Sudais supplicated to Allah Almighty to forgive all Muslims on this blessed night and save them from the Hellfire.
He prayed for safeguarding the Kingdom, its leaders, as well as all Muslim countries from all evil and to provide them with safety, security and stability.
The worshipers thronged the Grand Mosque from the early hours of the day. All the floors and piazzas of the Grand Mosque were full and the rows of worshipers extended to the courtyards and to the roads and streets leading to it.
