Personally, I would consider this an innovation. Islam only recognises the Adhan as the call to prayer. No bells, no fire and so on. So where did the idea of illumination come from, that too for a distance of 30km? Or is it just a massive compass so people would know which direction to face even though mosques are scattered all over the place!

Muneer Al Jundi passed away Wednesday Jumada Al-Awal 4, 1442 AH, in Stuttgart, Germany. He designed the door of the Ka’bah which was installed in 1399 AH by order of King Khalid bin Abdul Aziz, may Allah have mercy on him and forgive him.

It is noteworthy that King Khalid, may Allah have mercy on him, issued his order to change the door of the Ka’bah, as His Majesty noticed that the door that was made during the reign of His Majesty King Abdul-Aziz had worn out and he also ordered the work of another door inside the Ka’bah where a staircase leads to the roof


His name is also on the door of the Ka'ba (see tweet)

arab.news/paft4

Entry to the Kingdom through land and sea ports has also been suspended
Some flights will be allowed in exceptional circumstances

ARAB NEWS

December 20

LONDON: Saudi Arabia on Sunday suspended all international passenger flights for one week in response to a new strain of the coronavirus.

Entry to the Kingdom through land and sea ports has also been suspended and this period may be extended by another week.

The decisions were made in response to the emergence of a potent new strain of the virus in the UK and other European countries.
Some flights will be allowed in exceptional circumstances, Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

Anyone who has returned to the Kingdom from European countries or high risk countries after Dec. 8 is required to quarantine for two weeks from the date of their arrival.

They must also undergo a COVID-19 test during their self-isolation period and repeat the test every five days.

Anyone who has returned from or transited through a European or high risk country within the last three months must also undergo the test.

The movement of goods, commodities and supply chains from countries where the mutated virus has not appeared will continue as usual.

These travel restrictions will be reviewed in accordance with coronavirus related developments.

5m perform rituals at Grand Mosque since resumption

Saudi Arabia suspended Umrah in March and significantly downsized the Hajj pilgrimage in July by only allowing about 1,000 pilgrims, all in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. (SPA)

arab.news/8kgn4

December 23

JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia has received 5 million Umrah pilgrims and worshippers since the resumption of the rituals, said Minister of Hajj and Umrah Dr. Mohammed Saleh Benten.

He said that no cases of COVID-19 infections were reported among pilgrims and worshippers.

The statement came during a meeting with Makkah Gov. Prince Khaled Al-Faisal in Jeddah on Wednesday.

Saudi Arabia suspended Umrah in March and significantly downsized the Hajj pilgrimage in July by only allowing about 1,000 pilgrims, all in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Kingdom is getting back on track after earlier lockdowns while adhering to strict health protocols.

On Sept. 22, the Kingdom announced a gradual resumption of Umrah pilgrimage in four phases.

Tourist offices abroad are following their contracts with the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah so that pilgrims can come to perform Umrah rituals.

In the first phase, which lasted for 14 days, 84,000 pilgrims were received — 6,000 people per day. A total of 210,000 pilgrims performed Umrah rituals during the second phase.

The third phase, which started on Nov. 1, permitted pilgrims from abroad to perform the ritual alongside residents of the Kingdom.
