Visitors to the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah, Saudi Arabia, this Ramadan are set to experience tranquility and comfort away from the world’s troubles, allowing them to observe prayers and rituals in peace.
During Ramadan, Islam’s holy month of fasting, the mosque is traditionally filled with the whispers of worshipers and Quran reciters and the fragrant scent of oud, amber, and musk.
The Agency of the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Prophet's Mosque has provided 28 kg of luxurious natural oud and 300 liters of fragrances and essential oils to perfume the Prophet’s Mosque and its visitors.
Throughout the month, the agency would have fragranced the mosque over 600 times.
Besides perfuming the premises, the agency has also intensified its efforts to sterilize the mosque and its facilities as part of efforts to provide services to visitors of the Prophet’s Mosque.
Statistics released by the agency show that the mosque and its courtyards are sterilized five times a day, and that toilets are cleaned about 10 times a day.
A total of 300 machines clean the carpets at the mosque and 92 machines, carrying 18,000 liters of environmentally friendly sterilizers, wash its floors.
