King Salman of Saudi Arabia has ordered a reduction in the number of Taraweeh prayers at the Grand Mosque in Mecca and Medina.
Prayers will then be held by the rules of protection against the spread of Corona Virus disease.
On Tuesday, Muslims around the world look forward to the start of Ramadan.
During last year's fast, the five obligatory prayers, the Taraweeh prayer and the Umrah prayer were suspended.
This year, Saudi authorities have agreed to perform Umrah, but I'tikaf and iftar have been banned in both mosques.
