A pregnant Indonesian woman gave birth to a baby boy at the Grand Mosque while performing Umrah (mini pilgrimage) in Saudi Arabia. The woman was praying at the Grand Mosque in the Western Saudi town of Makkah, when she went into labour, 'Sabq' newspaper said.
A female medical team deployed for women at the mosque rushed to the pilgrim and helped her deliver inside the prayer hall, it said. “Both the woman and the baby are in good condition. "Medical supervisors said it was an easy delivery process,” the paper added.
Millions of Muslims converge every year on the Grand Mosque, the world’s largest mosque and home to Kaaba, Islam’s holiest shrine.
