Muslims normally consider the night of 27th Ramadan as Laylat Al-Qadr, which equalizes one thousand months (nearly 83 years) while they humbly pray to Allah to have them accepted with the winners in paradise. The roofs and courtyards of the Grand Mosque were full of worshippers amid an integrated system of services and comprehensive care provided by the government.
Mohamed Al-Mutasim, 54, a Sudanese who came to perform Umrah, said he performed the religious ritual easily and comfortably despite huge numbers of pilgrims.
Mohamed Rahman, 34, an Indonesian, said they have faced no problems since their arrival at the airport till the time of entering the Grand Mosque. “I devoted full time praying for my family, children and all Muslims,” he told Arab News.
