Saudi Arabia to issue Mecca iftar meal distribution permits for Ramadan

Dubai: Saudi Arabia’s holy city of Mecca announced that it would issue permits for holding iftar meals at the Grand Mosque as well as in residential neighbourhoods, main thoroughfares and streets across the city, local media reported.


The holy city’s concerned committee announced it has begun to issue permits to distribute iftar meals in a move heralding the return of normal life and the resumption of worship at the Grand Mosque during Ramadan. It follows unprecedented coronavirus-related restrictions imposed last year.


The committee announced it would receive applications for permits through its website. It has specified items that are authorized to be distributed as part of iftar meal for this year. These include food baskets that are distributed to needy families, hot meals in neighbourhoods and outlets, and dry meals inside the Grand Mosque and its courtyards as well as in the residential neighbourhoods of the holy city.


The outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic forced the emirate to stop the distribution of iftar meals in the Grand Mosque as well as in residential neighbourhoods, roads, and streets across the holy city during the holy Ramadan last year.
