He urged Muslims to pray to Allah to help them through the pandemic.

Muslims are a "few days away" from being allowed to perform prayers again at the Grand Mosque in Makkah, the mosque's imam has said.

In a video that went viral on social media, the imam, Abdul Rahman Al Sudais, was seen answering a question from a reporter about the possibility of having worshippers gather again at the mosque.

He said that soon people will be allowed to return to the mosque for prayers and for circumambulation around the holy Kaaba.

The authorities care about people more than anything else, he said. "All Muslims should pray to Allah to help us through this pandemic. People must be careful and take necessary precautions to protect themselves and others," he added.
