A Ramadan unlike any other

Title (Dublin Core)

A Ramadan unlike any other

Description (Dublin Core)

During the Holy month of Ramadan, those who are fortunate make their pilgrimage around the Ka'aba to increase their blessings. During this time, in an effort to limit contagion from the coronavirus, Saudi Arabia has ordered for this place to be emptied. The emptiness that surrounds the Holy place hits hard for any Muslim, knowing that they are unable to pray in the congregation during this difficult time. At the same time, mosques are being closed to limit the spread and follow the precautionary guidelines.
