RIYADH — Saudi Arabia has issued directives to limit the use of external loudspeakers in mosques.

Minister of Islamic Affairs, Call and Guidance Sheikh Dr. Abdul Latif Bin Abdulaziz Al-Sheikh has set the number of external loudspeakers used in mosques to make the calls for prayer (adhan) at four.

Dr. Al-Sheikh has instructed to remove external loudspeakers exceeding four from all mosques and store the extra ones in a warehouse for later use or distribute them to mosques that do not have enough numbers of them.

The minister has launched the Volunteer Initiatives Exhibition at the ministry's branch in Al-Qassim, which included a number of pavilions for the administrations of mosques, da'wah and guidance in the governorates. The expo showcases the achievements, programs, and initiatives of the current and future volunteering departments.
