This year, during the holy month of Ramadan, Tarabi prayers will be held at 10 rak’ats instead of 20 rak’ats in the two main mosques of Makkah and Medina in Saudi Arabia (Masjid al-Haram and Masjid al-Nawabi).
Due to the coronavirus epidemic, Tarabi’s prayers were ordered to be shortened by the caretaker of the country’s two main mosques and King Salman bin Abdul Aziz.
Accordingly, Tarabi has been shortened this time. The state-run news agency Saudi Press Agency quoted Gulf News as saying.
Fasting in the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia, begins tomorrow, Tuesday. On this occasion, Tarabi’s prayers will have to be performed there from tonight.
Shaykh Abdul Rahman Al Sudais, head of the presidency over the two mosques, said the Haramain would be held at 10 rak’ats instead of 20 rak’ats. Corona restrictions will be strictly observed at this time.
Only those who receive the corona vaccine can perform Umrah and prayers. Al-Sudais, head of the Haramain presidency, said the two mosques had taken the highest measures to prevent corona. He also said that the health of those who come to the mosque will be given utmost importance.
Earlier, Saudi Arabia allowed prayers and umrah in two holy mosques during the holy month of Ramadan. However, Iftar and Itikaf have been postponed in the two mosques. In addition, the entry of children has been banned.
In addition, the Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah issued regulations on Sunday for offering prayers at the Grand Mosque in Mecca during the holy month of Ramadan and for visiting the Rawza of the Prophet (peace be upon him) in Medina.
It said anyone who performed the umrah without permission and was caught would be fined 10,000 Saudi riyals. Anyone who enters the Grand Mosque without permission will be fined 1,000 Saudi riyals.
