It may be noted that the Saudi government has suspended Friday and five daily prayers at mosques across the country to prevent the deadly Corona virus from spreading, but it was reported in the mosque al-Haram in Mecca and at the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina. The ban will not apply and the prayers will continue to be held there. However, as per the precautionary measures, some more have been earned.
