Al Azhar has commended the precautionary and preventive measures taken by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to prevent the spread of Coronavirus among Muslims wishing to perform Umrah.

In a statement carried by Saudi Press Agency, Al Azhar ruled that "These measures are permissible, legitimate and rewarded. Rather, they are a legal duty to protect people."
