Makkah: The General Presidency for the Affairs of the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque launched on Tuesday its mobile phone charging service, Makkah newspaper reported.
The presidency had announced in October that it would launch a new service providing outlets in the Grand Mosque to allow pilgrims and worshippers to charge their mobile phones, said presidency’s Vice President Mashhour Al-Munimi.
Mobile phone charging points have been provided at various pillars inside the Grand Mosque. The charging points have eight outlets. There are pockets to place mobile phones while they are charging.
“The presidency aims to always serve pilgrims and worshippers,” said Al-Munimi.
He added that each person will only be allowed to charge for five minutes when the mosque is crowded.
“The presidency is not responsible for the phones in case they are lost or damaged,” said Al-Munimi.
