Clips and snapshots of images of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, showing the pinky of his right hand, during prayer in Al-Rawdah next to the tomb of the Prophet Muhammad in Medina.

The circulating pictures show Prince Mohammed bandaging his little finger over minor wounds, which sparked interaction and wishes for recovery recorded by activists in their blog posts on the X platform (formerly Twitter).

Social media pioneers circulated this photo, after bin Salman performed prayers in “Al-Rawdah Al-Sharifa,” according to what was published by the official Saudi News Agency, “SPA.”

“SPA” said that Prince Muhammad “was honored to greet the Messenger of God, may God bless him and grant him peace, and to his two companions, may God be pleased with them both.”

The agency added that the Saudi Crown Prince also visited the Quba Mosque in Medina and performed two rak’ahs of salutation at the mosque, accompanied by a number of officials. He had received at the Taiba Palace in Medina a number of clerics, officials and citizens who came to greet him during a visit to Medina.
