Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz has approved the opening of the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah slowly to the public starting Sunday.

The General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques has completed the plan to reopen the Prophet’s Mosque under strict precautionary measures, limiting the congregation to 40 percent of the mosque’s capacity at a time.

The worshipers will be allowed to enter the mosque from Fajr prayers on Sunday morning (Shawwal 8).

Prayer rugs spread in the Prophet’s Mosque will be removed from the courtyards.
