The Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department in Dubai (IACAD) has clarified the guidelines for performing Eid Al Fitr prayers aimed at protecting the community from COVID-19.
Eid prayers will begin at 5:52 am in Dubai. Prayer halls will open 15 minutes before Eid Al Fitr prayers and close immediately after prayers are completed. The Eid prayers (including the sermon) will be held for a duration of 15 minutes. Women’s prayer halls will remain closed until further notice.
Worshippers are urged not to crowd at the entry and exit points of mosques and avoid gathering before and after Eid prayers.
IACAD stressed the importance of adhering to all precautionary measures outlined by authorities earlier. The preventive guidelines issued earlier for Taraweeh prayers will continue to be enforced to ensure public safety.
The public can find the names of the Musallah Al Eid prayer halls by visiting the department’s website www.iacad.gov.ae or the department’s social media platforms.
