The Saudi Government has taken action to change the Saudi Arabia’s weekend.

Overseas reports point out that accordingly that the Saudi Government has named Friday and Saturday as the weekend.

The foreign reports say further that the Saudi Government had taken this step since there are obstacles to perform religious observances on Friday.

Since Friday is a working day in Saudi Arabia participating in religious observances is impeded.

The Saudi Government has taken this action based on this situation.
