Every Muslim around the world wishes to be among those who are saying prayers at the same time he watches the live prayers transmitted from Al-Masjid Al-Haram, the Grand Mosque in Makkah where thousands of Muslims directly face Al Ka’aba Qibla in complete obedience to God Almighty.
There are many authentic Hadith that show the virtue of praying in Al-Masjid Al-Haram in Makkah. One prayer is equivalent to one hundred thousand prayers elsewhere due to the sanctity of Al Ka’aba. Al-Masjid Al-Haram is one of the three most important mosques that Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him) recommends us to travel to.
Al-Masjid al-Haram has many areas allocated for prayers, which are well furnished with carpets that are always cleaned and perfumed with rosewater. Areas assigned for women are surrounded with moveable walls, and the managers of Al-Masjid al-Haram make every effort to organize the movement of worshipers inside the mosque to avoid congestion and stampedes while performing the daily five prayers.
The five obligatory prayers are held daily In Al-Masjid al-Haram, in addition to prayers for funerals, Friday prayers and occasional prayers for various Islamic events such as Taraweeh, Tahajjud, Eid prayer and prayers for rain. There is a number of authorized imams accredited by the General Presidency of the Two Holy Mosques in Makkah and Madinah and three or four imams are appointed to lead prayers in each mosque every day.
