A touching photo showing a Saudi security officer carrying a child while his father performs prayer has garnered lots of praise on social media.

In a scene that took place at the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah, the security man was captured on camera whilst holding the child, allowing the father to carry his prayers comfortably.


Juman Al Assiri, head of public relations, information and communication at Al Masjid Al Nabbawi, said the scene reflects the constant dedication of security men serving worshippers at the site.

“He carried the child on behalf of his father, until he concluded prayer, and this is no stranger to security men who take care of the comfort of the worshipers, and the safety of citizens and residents everywhere,” Assir said in comments to Al Arabiya English.
