Over 2 million Muslims pray at Grand Mosque on 27th night of Ramdan
Muslims normally consider the 27th night of Ramadan as Laylat Al-Qadr, which equalizes one thousand months (nearly 83 years).


More than two million worshippers offered Isha and taraweeh prayers on 27th night of Ramadan at the Grand Mosque in Makkah, in a highly spiritual atmosphere.

The worshipers performed their Isha and Taraweeh prayers in the Grand Mosque on the 27th night of Ramadan in eagerness to seek Laylat al-Qadr during the last ten days of the holy month, under comprehensive care and integrated outstanding services provided by Saudi agencies concerned with serving Umrah pilgrims and visitors to the holy Haram, with the follow-up of Prince Khalid Al-Faisal, advisor to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and governor of Makkah Region, IINA reported.

Many Muslims consider the 27th night of  Ramadan as Laylat Al-Qadr, which equalizes one thousand months (nearly 83 years) while they humbly pray to Allah to have them accepted with the winners in paradise.

Prince Khalid Al-Faisal considered serving the guests of Allah as a great honor, saying that everyone was doing his best to ensure maximum comfort and facilitation in serving them these days. He pointed to the great services rendered to the Umrah pilgrims, and the completed new expansion works at the Grand Mosque, which will benefit the pilgrims in this holy month.

The Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported that the various concerned agencies and sectors were keen to make early preparations to offer services to the faithful in the Holy Mosque, especial with regard to the implementation of the approved plans, in various fields, for the last ten days of Ramadan.

More than two million worshippers, including Umrah pilgrims, from inside and outside the Kingdom, as well as citizens and residents were able to perform their rituals in ease and comfort, taking the advantage of an integrated and distinctive services system and comprehensive care provided by the government of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and the Crown Prince and the Deputy Crown Prince.
