Coronavirus: Saudi Arabia says Ramadan prayers likely to be at home


RIYADH, APR 17 –  Saudi Arabia’s Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdulaziz Al Al Sheikh, the highest religious authority in the country, said that Muslim prayers during Ramadan and for the subsequent Eid Al Fitr feast should be performed at home if the coronavirus outbreak continues.

“Ramadan’s Taraweeh (evening) prayer can be performed at home if it cannot be performed at mosques due to the preventive measures taken to fight the spread of coronavirus,” he said in response to a question, adding that same applies for Eid prayers.
