Efforts continue at Prophet's Mosque to serve worshippers during Ramadan

RIYADH: The General Directorate for the Affairs of Al-Masjid an-Nabawi, or the Prophet's Mosque, is carrying on with plans during the month of Ramadan to serve visitors, the Saudi Press Agency has said.
The directorate has prepared the mosque to accommodate worshipers at the time of prayers, in addition to monitoring the Iftar meals offered at the mosque and its external courts.
It also said it has intensified its water services, cleaning efforts and air conditioning around the clock to provide worshipers with an atmosphere full of serenity and reverence.
SPA took pictures of the services offered at the mosque, beginning with guiding visitors and organizing their entry through the gates of the Prophet’s Mosque to the men and women sections. It also directs worshippers to the emptier courts to avoid crowding.
It also captured the preparations for setting the Iftar meals at the mosque, including the installing of water spray fans at the outside squares due to sustain high temperatures during summer, so that visitors pray with ease and comfort.

Saudi FM Faisal bin Farhan discusses regional tensions with UK's Dominic Raab

LONDON: Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister met with his British counterpart in London on Monday to discuss heightened Middle East tensions.

Prince Faisal bin Farhan said he discussed with Dominic Raab the two countries’ “strong bilateral relationship and our continuous coordination to bring about peace and stability to the region.”

Raab said: “The UK is continuing to work with international partners to deescalate tensions and conflict in the Middle East. Today I had a good first meeting with Faisal bin Farhan to discuss the challenges facing the region.”

Prince Faisal also visited the Kingdom’s London embassy, sharing a photo of himself with the staff and praising their work in enhancing relations between Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom.

Monday's meeting comes at a time of heightened instability across the region. Iraq and Lebanon continue to experience violent protests, and international involvement in the Libyan crisis threatens to escalate the conflict further.

US — Iran tensions also remain high after Iran launched ballistic missiles at American positions in Iraq, following years of escalation between the two countries.
