You Can’t Take Photos And Videos Any Longer At Islam’s Two Holiest Sites


According to the Daily Sabah, the Saudi Foreign Ministry has taken the decision to prohibit photos and videos in Masjid An Nabawi in Madinah and Masjid Al Haram in Makkah.

The ban was imposed to protect and preserve the holy sites. Another reason cited was that it was a disturbance to other worshipers.
