The Women’s Affairs Agency attached to the department looking after Masjid-e-Nabvi is busy making preparations to develop a performance system for Ramadan management for 1444 AH.
The aim of these preparations is to improve the quality of services provided to women pilgrims at Masjid-e-Nabvi.
The Assistant Undersecretary for Women’s Service and Field Affairs explained the conditions, controls and procedures of women providing iftar services.
During the upcoming Ramadan, the number of Iftar food packages for fasting people is expected to reach around 1,285,000.
A total of 524 women will render services at the Masjid-e-Nabvi fast, while tax companies and 821 volunteers will join. A total of 22 women were appointed supervisors.
In mid-October, Saudi Minister of Hajj and Umrah, Dr. Tawfiq Al-Rabiya, announced that women no longer need a male guardian, or mahram, to visit the Kingdom to perform Hajj or Umrah.
Under the new rules, visas have been extended to three months, and pilgrims can travel to other areas of the Kingdom.
