Qatar- Riyadh to allow non-Muslims to enter 4 mosques in Jeddah




(MENAFN - The Peninsula)

Riyadh: Saudi Arabia will allow non-Muslims to enter four mosques in Jeddah, local media reported on Monday.

The main purpose of the move is to allow non-Muslims to get acquainted with the Islamic civilization, Xinhua news agency quoted a media report as saying.

Saudi Arabia banned non-Muslims from entering Mecca city, which is a sacred land for Muslims around the world.

Although many Islamic countries have been allowing non-Muslims to visit mosques as tourist attractions for years, mosques in the Kingdom until now were off-limit to them.
