A complaint that a worker was prohibited from praying during working hours is being looked into by the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development (MHRSD), according to a report.

Saad Al Hammad, the ministry’s official spokesperson, clarified in a tweet that “the monitoring teams have initiated the complaint and are working to verify this with all parties, and completion is ahead in its regular procedures” in response to reports that a worker had been prevented from praying on time while he was at work.

We urge everyone to use the mobile app for the ministry, which is accessible on smartphones, to report any breaches they encounter, and we stress the significance of all enterprises and employers adhering to the implementation of the work system’s norms and regulations.

Saudi Labor Law states on Prayer timings during Work :

Saudi Labor Law states that “The periods allotted for rest, prayer, and meals do not constitute actual working hours, and the employee is not subject to employer control during these periods. Also, the worker cannot be compelled to work during certain periods by the employer.”

Working hours and rest intervals are regulated during the day so that the employee does not work for more than 5 hours in a row without taking a break for prayer, food, or other activity lasting at least 30 minutes, and so that the employee does not spend more than 12 hours a day at their place of employment,” according to Saudi labor legislation.

Regarding working hours, the Saudi Labor Law provides that, “If the employer follows the daily standard timings, the employee is not permitted to work more than 8 hours per day or, if the employer follows the weekly requirement, more than 48 hours per week. Ramadan requires Muslims to limit their real working hours to no more than six hours per day or thirty-six hours per week “.
