Prayer halls will open 15 minutes before the prayers and close immediately after the 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.

The prayers will begin at 5:52 am in the emirate.

Worshippers are urged not to crowd at the entry and exit points of mosques and avoid gathering before and after the prayers. 

IACAD has stressed the importance of adhering to all precautionary measures, including wearing of face masks, maintaining physical distancing and avoiding physical greetings like handshakes.

The preventive guidelines issued earlier for Taraweeh prayers will continue to be enforced to ensure public safety.
