Taraweeh Schedule for Masjid Al Haram
Previously, Muslims around the world had been overjoyed to receive the good news that the Taraweeh prayers at the Masjid Al-Haram and the Masjid An Nabawi during this year’s Ramadan could be performed with full attendance. The General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques announced that both local and international visitors are allowed to perform Taraweeh in the Two Holy Mosques.
This good news is warmly welcomed by Muslims all over the world considering that in 2021, Taraweeh prayers at the Haram Mosque were limited to the general public and only allowed to be performed by a few people, including the management of the Masjid Al-Haram as well as local Saudi citizens because at that time the government imposed a lockdown and prohibited international visitors from entering the holy mosques to prevent the spread of the coronavirus infection.
Worshippers who will attend Taraweeh prayers at Masjid Al-Haram and Masjid An Nabawi are also no longer required to follow precautionary measures and social distancing. They just need to show their “immune” status in the Tawakkalna app before entering the Two Holy Mosques’.
