Mecca’s Masjid al-Haram was full with around two million Muslims who performed Taraweeh prayer late on Monday, marking the 27th night of Ramadan.
SPA, the official Saudi news agency, said Muslims gathered from across Saudi Arabia and the world to pray Taraweeh, which is an extra special prayer performed during Ramadan.
The 27th night of Ramadan is believed to be Laylat al-Qadr, which according to Quran, is better than 1,000 months of worship.
Masjid al-Haram contains the Kaaba and is the most sacred mosque for Muslims.
King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia had recently launched five projects as a third expansion phase for Masjid al-Haram to increase its capacity.
