Coronavirus: Saudi Arabia closes all Mosques

The Council of Senior Scholars in Saudi Arabia decided on Tuesday to suspend the daily congregational prayers and the weekly Friday prayer in all mosques across the Kingdom.

The Grand Mosque in Makkah and the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah are exempted from this ruling, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Tuesday, quoting a council statement.

The 25th extraordinary session of the council held in Riyadh ruled that all the mosques will remain closed on a temporary basis but the call for prayer (adhan) shall be made as usual, the statement said.
