There are three designated prayer areas for the disabled, one each for people with hearing impairments, the visually challenged and those with physical disabilities.

People with physical disabilities will be given access to the special prayer areas around the clock throughout the week while the prayer areas for those with hearing impairment will be ready only in the morning on Fridays.

While inaugurating the project recently, Sheikh Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais, head of the presidency, said the initiative was within the presidency's efforts to help the guests of God to perform their religious rituals and prayers in ease and comfort.
