80-Year-Old Man Retires After Serving Masjid-e-Nabvi for 40 years

Citizens of Saudi Arabia have also launched a funded campaign for the worker, identified as Moqtada. After his photos went viral, citizens also appealed to his employer not to terminate but honour him for his services.

“It was a tough moment when my employer told me that I am being retired because of my old age,” Moqtada told local media.

The majority of the citizens have also pushed the Saudi Government to give the worker a permanent iqama (residence permit) and citizenship.

They said that as long as the worker stays in Saudi Arabia, he should receive a regular salary for his four-decades of service for the Masjid-Nabawi.

Saudi woman writer Monaira Al-Qadeeb also extended her support for the campaign, adding that people like these workers should be honored.
