It happened and Muslims are shattered and confused!

What has shocked Muslims all over the world is the fact that the government of Saudi Arabia has temporarily banned Umrah. This now goes for Saudi residents as well. Previously, the Saudi government had banned Umrah for non-residents. The news was announced after the health ministry had announced three new cases of coronavirus in the country on Thursday.

Indeed, this news was heartbreaking and terrifying because it is said that Masjid al-haram is that one place where every second, there’s at least someone doing their ‘tawaaf’. However, the order was made to ensure Masjid al Haram is free of germs and disinfect the entire place.

Clarifying all the rumors about banning ‘Tawaaf’, the authorities said that people are allowed to do perform Umrah on the second floor of Masjid al Haram and urged people not to spread any false rumors.

But people are still heartbroken by the sight of emptiness!

This is heartbreaking!

This is devastating!

 People are questioning the authorities

Exactly. This is shattering!

Moreover, according to news, Masjid-e-Haram in Makkah and Masjid-e-Nabvi (PBUH) in Madinah will remain closed an hour after Isha and will reopen an hour before the Fajr prayer.

Adding on to that, a notification issued by the Abu Dhabi General Authority of Islamic Affairs & Endowments said that Friday prayers across the United Arab Emirates will be limited to only 10 minutes.
