Grand Mosque capacity limited due to constructions

Kuwait Grand Mosque during Ramadan




Kuwait: The Grand Mosque will have a maximum capacity of 18,000 worshippers this year; a limited number compared to previous Ramadan seasons due to expansion works of the First Ring Road which will prevent setting up tents and utilizing open years in the mosque’s perimeters to absorb extra worshippers, reports local daily Kuwait Times. 

Meanwhile, Minister of Justice and Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Dr Fahd Al-Afasi reaffirmed keenness on providing all facilities for worshippers during the holy month of Ramadan. Afasi said during a tour at the Grand Mosque yesterday that all preparations were made to receive worshippers during the holy month in cooperation with concerned authorities at the interior and health ministers, civil defense and many other state departments.
