The General Presidency for the affairs of the Presidency of the Two Holy Mosques has announced that revered Saudi cleric Sheikh Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Sudais will give his first sermon during Friday prayers at the Prophet’s Mosque.

The organization made the announcement via their Twitter account on Thursday.

Al-Sudais is considered one of Islam’s most prominent reciter of the Quran. His Friday sermon will be his first as a preacher at the Prophet’s Mosque.

He was appointed as the head of the Presidency for the Two Holy Mosques at the rank of minister by a royal decree on May 8, 2012.

Al-Sudais officially became an imam in 1984, at just 22-years-old at the time and conducted his first sermon at the Grand Mosque in Mecca in July 1984.
