Off to Hajj this year? Power outlets are available around the Masjid Al Haram in Makkah if you need to charge your phone for an emergency free of charge.
This initiation was launched by The General Presidency for the affairs of the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque. The charging stations are attached at various of pillars inside the Grand mosque.
The charging boards can hold up to eight mobile phones and have pockets to place mobile in whilst they charge remember you will only get 5 mins each time to allow other Pilgrims and worshippers a chance, and it is mandatory you remain nearby The Presidency is not reliable for lost or damaged items.
This initiative remember is not there to distract you from your worship it is a tool to help in emergencies the Grand Mosque can get crowded at times and possible to get separated from a group or family members.
We hope you only need to use the charging stations to put your phone in good use only for worshiping and not to bombard Facebook, Whatsapp and snapchat with videos and pictures.
