MADINA – An estimated 500,000 Iftar meals per day are served at the Prophet’s Mosque.
Philanthropists in their hundreds flock to the Prophet’s Mosque after Asr prayers carrying with them meals consisting of Kabsa, sambosa and dates to share them with their Muslim brothers, regardless of their race and color. Their only aim is seeking Allah’s reward. This scene symbolizes unity among Muslims and their passion for good deeds in the holy month of Ramadan.
Meanwhile, the Presidency of the General Affairs of the Prophet’s Mosque has mobilized more than 1,400 male and female employees to look after the worshippers and guide them. Over 1,000 cleaners are working round the clock to keep the mosque clean. The cleaners remove about ten tons of leftovers daily. Besides, they supply Zamzam water to visitors and Umrah performers in more than 7,000 water coolers. It is a common scene to see worshippers helping the cleaners in removing the leftovers. – Okaz
