Elaborate arrangements have been made at the historic Mecca Masjid for the smooth conduct of prayers during Ramzan month.

The historic mosque dating 16th century attracts lakhs of people from across the country during the month of Ramzan. A majority come to attend the ‘taraweeh’ prayers conducted in the night wherein the chapters of the Holy Quran are recited.

Maulana Hafeez Rizwan Qureshi, Khateeb Mecca Masjid, will recite three chapters of the Quran during the taraweeh prayers every night. The prayer sessions will commence after the sighting of the new moon indicating the beginning of the Ramzan.

“We expect around 5,000 people to attend the taraweeh prayers during the first ten days of the Ramzan. Carpets are refurbished, the water houz is cleaned up and refilled, and other required arrangements

done,” said Superintendent of Mecca Masjid, Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui.

During Ramzan, it is common for one to find families visiting the Mecca Masjid – considered one of the biggest in Asia – to enjoy the pious atmosphere that prevails during the Ramzan month, especially during Iftar. “The TS Wakf Board is making possible arrangements to provide Iftar meal. Usually, people bring along snacks and fruits and share with fellow rozedars,” he added.

Arrangements have also been done at the other important mosques in the city including the Shahi Masjid Bagh-e-Aam (Public Garden), Chiran Fort mosque at Jubilee Hills, Jamia Masjid Musheerabad, Jamia Masjid Secunderabad, Jamia Masjid ‘Aiwan-E-Begumpet’, Hayat Bakshi Begum Masjid at Hayathnagar, Jamia Masjid Mahboob Chowk, and Jamia Masjid Afzalgunj.
