In an unprecedented move, Saudi Arabia’s government closed Masjid al Haram

*RIYADH – The Saudi government closed Masjid al-Haram due to fear of the spread of coronavirus on Thursday.*

The courtyard adjacent to Khana Ka’aba was got vacated from pilgrims and closed. As a result, ‘tawaaf’ stopped in the ‘mutaaf’.

Sources said that Masjid al-Haram had been closed for spray.

Ulema have strongly criticized the move to close Khana Ka’aba.
