The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on Wednesday termed the reports claiming robots will take the role of Muazzin and call the Azaan at the Grand Mosque in Makkah false.

The General Presidency of Haramain, the Saudi Arabia agency responsible for the development and administration of the Islamic holy sites of the Masjid al-Haram and the Masjid an-Nabawi, informed that the robots will simply serve as a guide in terms of information delivery.

“It has been falsely claimed by a number of media outlets that the Presidency of Haramain’s recently unveiled AI-equipped robots will take the role of Muadhin and call the Adhan in Makkah. This is incorrect; the robots will simply serve as a guide in terms of information delivery,” the General Presidency of Haramain tweeted.
