General Presidency is going to appoint two imams and three muezzins for each obligatory prayer in the two holy shrines.
Incident of Negligence:
According to reports, the administration is sacking negligent officials. It is due to Fajar prayer getting delay by 45 minutes on Wednesday. The head of the administration is giving instructions to imams and muezzins to appoint a permanent imam for each obligatory prayer and another imam for emergencies.
“Moreover for each obligatory prayer, three muezzins are going to be there at the same time. This is to enable everyone to deal with any emergency.”
Dr. Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais has instructed the committee to “immediately comply with the decision and prepare a new schedule of Imams and muezzins for each prayer.”
However, To maintain the order, the adhan and iqama of all prayers is going to deliver at the appointed time. With that there is no delay in the Imamate.
Saudi Arabian authorities have fired two senior officials of the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina.
The Actual Order
General President Abdul Rahman Al Sudais, who heads the General Presidency for both Mosques, released the head and deputy head of the Imam and muezzins Affairs department at the Prophet’s Mosque for failing to perform their duties. Also, the department head assigns coaching and organizational responsibilities.
A report from Gulf News reported Friday (11/6), Al-Sudais had ordered the presence of three muezzins and two imams in the Grand Mosque in Makkah and Prophet’s Mosque for every prayer.
Officials of the department swore in a statement that they would take action against anyone found guilty. The decision is in place following a 45-minute delay in the Prophet’s Mosque.
Consequently, two senior Saudi officials were fired after the Prophet Mosque in Medina failed to perform the Fajr. The official promised that “all necessary measures” would be taken against any person found to be guilty.
