As the coronavirus continues to disrupt everyday life, celebrations such as for the upcoming Eid al-Fitr will be quite different this year.
Will there be a curfew?
Are family gatherings prohibited?
Will mosques be open?
Abdul Rahman Al Shamsi: Mosques will continue to remain closed during Eid Al Fitr, but the public will hear the call for Eid prayers to mark the religious fest while staying at home healthy and safe. #UAEGov— UAEGov (@uaegov) May 20, 2020
Is handing out Eidiyahs allowed?
Dr. Al Dhaheri: We remind families to avoid handing out Eidiyah (paper money gifts to children during Eid), as studies have shown they carry risk of spreading the infection. Electronic methods could be used instead. #UAEGov— UAEGov (@uaegov) May 20, 2020
