Imam inaugurates move back to the Prophet’s Mihrab

MADINAH: The imam of the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah, Sheikh Abdullah bin Abdulrahman Al-Baijan, today led worshippers in Salat Al Zuhr inside Prophet Muhammad’s Mihrab in the sacred chamber (Al-Rawda Al-Sharifa).
This step came after announcing the decision to perform the daily prayers as well as Friday prayers in Al-Rawda Al-Sharifa to allow worshippers to visit the tombs of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his two companions after they’re done with prayers.
The move was decided last month after 25 years of conducting prayers from the new mihrab.
The Prophet’s tomb can be visited by entering Al-Salam Door, passing by the tomb’s facade, and leaving through the Door of Baqi.

Saudi Arabia greatly concerned by Rohingya plight, says KSA envoy to UN

  • The International Fact-Finding Mission on Myanmar has documented the burning of entire villages, indiscriminate killing, mass rape, child abuse, enforced disappearance, and other forms of violence against minorities that amount to genocide

JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia is following the plight of Rohingya Muslims and other minorities in Myanmar with great concern, the Kingdom’s UN ambassador told the Human Rights Council.

Dr. Abdul Aziz Al-Wasil condemned violations of international humanitarian law by Myanmar’s military against Rohingya civilians in Rakhine state, and against other minorities elsewhere in the country.

The International Fact-Finding Mission on Myanmar has documented the burning of entire villages, indiscriminate killing, mass rape, child abuse, enforced disappearance, and other forms of violence against minorities that amount to genocide, he said.

Saudi Arabia recently provided $50 million to support rehabilitation programs for Rohingya related to education and health, he added. 

He also reaffirmed Saudi support for the efforts of the International Commission of Inquiry on Syria.

He thanked the commission for its latest report on the human rights situation in the country, and the suffering of people displaced by the Syrian regime and allied militias.
