Mosques prepare for Ramadan


RIYADH: Extensive arrangements are being made in mosques Kingdomwide to accommodate the additional rush of worshipers during the holy month of Ramadan.

The department of mosques that functions under the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Endowments, Call and Guidance has directed imams and muezzins in the Kingdom to keep their places of worship tidy and ensure adequate supplies of power and water during Ramadan when Muslims typically attend an optional prayer called the Tharaweeh, which follows the regular Isha prayers. Private establishments contracted for the maintenance of mosques have been asked to be on duty at night during the holy month.

The department of mosques maintains more than 5,000 mosques in Riyadh alone and other mosques in the city and suburbs have been built and maintained by members of the royal family and philanthropists in the Kingdom.
