He will spend the last part of Ramadan in the holy city and will also offer Eid prayer there.

The king has received foreign dignitaries, including the leaders of Turkey and Yemen, in Jeddah this week.

Muslim leaders often come to the Kingdom during the last days of Ramadan, which are considered blessed, to perform Umrah — the lesser pilgrimage — in Makkah’s Grand Mosque.
