Alhamdulillah watched it live!!! Loved the fact dear sheikh sudais was sooo humble, n took an individual in a wheelchair around the mataaf too. A great example- mashaallah!!!
May Allah grant success to the works of the haramain. Aameen
May Allah reward our dear HR team for bringing the news to us round the clock. Jazakallahu khayr fi daarayn. Aameen

does that mean that the people in the wheelchairs won't have to do tawaf of the ka'aba from the second floor anymore?
