As the count down to the Holy month of Ramadan begins, Muslim faithful have been urged to observe Ramadan and Eid prayers at home if the COVID-19 pandemic persists.
The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Abdulaziz al-Sheikh stated this while responding to a question at a media briefing in Mecca, to herald Ramadan.
Sheikh al-Sheikh noted that Ramadan’s evening prayer, known as “Taraweeh” could be performed at home due to the preventive measures taken to fight the spread of coronavirus disease.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has banned every gathering as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequently cancelled the lesser hajj due to the scourge.
The Holy month of Ramadan during which Muslims fast for one month is scheduled to begin on Friday, this week.
