“All mosques, however, will declare Takbeerat Al Aid (Eid chants) through their microphones 10 minutes prior to the prayer to instill feelings of joy and happiness among people,” he added.
He stressed on the importance of disseminating feeling of joy and exchanging greetings among all family members, relatives, neighbors, and friends through modern means of communications, while entirely abstaining from physical visits and gatherings to ensure the safety of all people, especially the elderly, children and sick people.
It is incumbent on everyone to abide by the COVID-19 countermeasures during Eid. Any violations will have an adverse effect on the entire society,” he warned, noting that the violators will be subject to administrative penalty and disciplinary action.
He reiterated the importance of stopping distributing Eidaya (money gift to children during Eid), citing some research studies which confirmed that the virus may be transmitted through banknote.
