Yes, it is for the first time since Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) introduced us with the divine religion of Islam and now it is almost 1400 years, in these past 1400 years it was never seen or heard that there was no Prayer at Masjid a Nabawi and Masjid al-Haram, yesterday’s Friday prayer was prayed with only 3-4 people of the Saudi Authorities with Imam, no worshippers were allowed to pray with them, for instance, the view of both the Mosques were empty with no worshippers, the Imam started getting emotional during the prayer as everyone is shocked and sad due to the loss of divine activities in the most sacred places like Makkah and Madina.
The Prophet Mosques were closed last night and no worshippers were allowed to even come closer to the sight of the Mosque as the Authorities are doing serious social distancing as it is the only way to slow down the outbreak of COVID-19.
Yesterday marks 20th March 2020 witnessed the most disastrous increase in numbers of death in Italy which reached up to 630 deaths in a single day. After which the world is now in serious chaos and in fear, surely the Divine is upset with us, as we have forgotten him and Allah says in the Quran ”
And be not like those who forgot Allah, so He made them forget themselves. Those are defiantly disobedient.
Surah Al-Hashr [59:19] – Quran
JUMAH prayer was also suspended in Masjid al-Haram and Nabawi along with local mosques in the entire Kingdom, also the presidency has ordered that no worshippers will be allowed to pray in Masjid An Nabawi (Friday). Regular prayer will continue to take place but with limited people only.
