Every Ramadan, millions of Muslims unite in mosques worldwide, pouring their hearts into extra worship during the sacred last ten nights. These nights are said to contain a special Night Of Power, also known as Laylatul Qadr, which many believe falls on the 27th night of Ramadan. Considering the religious significance of these days, many flock to the holiest sites in Makkah and Madinah to indulge in worship.

This year’s 27th night fell on a Friday night, April 5 2024, and millions of Muslims were seen worshipping in and outside the Two Holy Mosques.

The Saudi Press Agency released these photos of massive crowds at Masjid Al Haram

Grounds both inside and surrounding the Grand Mosque in Makkah were jam-packed with worshippers, as seen in these aerial photos. The SPA also reported that officials provided Qurans in different languages to the public and made sure to keep everything extra clean and comfy, with good ventilation, for all the incoming visitors during the Holy Month.

The mataf area surrounding the Holy Kaaba was also at full capacity!

Someone posted this video on X where the mataf area is seen completely jammed with worshippers completing their Umrah pilgrimage during the holy night. Officials actually made extra room for Tawaf at the mosque, to facilitate all incoming pilgrims in a timely manner. It was also reported that Sheikh Sudais, the Imam at the Makkah Grand Mosque, led the prayers.
