MINA: As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Al-Khaif Mosque has been closed for two years. The Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Call, and Guidance announced that it is now prepared to receive pilgrims.
All the necessary preparations have been made by the ministry, represented by the Higher Committee for Hajj, Umrah, and Visit, to provide pilgrims with all the comforts and tranquility they need to perform their rituals.
We prepared more than 1,000 toilets, Islamic awareness counters, and fatwa cabinets increased the number of electronic monitors, and assigned maintenance companies to work around the clock for cleaning and maintenance. We also dispatched field supervisors to supervise the maintenance work.
Muslim leaders have always taken great care of Al-Khaif Mosque. During Saudi Arabia’s reign, it experienced its most significant expansion in 1407 Hijri. Presently, the mosque can accommodate 25,000 worshippers within its 23,500 square meters.
Four minarets adorn the mosque. Besides the toilets, it has thousands of water taps for ablution.
