Muslims across the country have been cautioned against converging during Eid-ul-fitri celebrations.
Chief Kadh Sheikh Shariff Ahmed Muhdhar says this year’s Eid-ul-fitri prayers come at very challenging times when the country is grappling with the Covid-19 pandemic.
Sheikh Muhdhar said Muslims should not further spread Coronavirus but instead help in mitigation measures.
“Let’s celebrate Eid-ul-fitri in silence and at home,” he said.
Sheikh Muhdhar appealed for unison in the fight against Coronavirus.
“We are in very challenging times, we cannot converge in mosques and even in various grounds to mark Eid-ul-fitri, but we should not relent in fighting the disease,” noted Chief Kadh.
He urged Muslim faithful to remain at home and avoid unnecessary movements during these times when the country is fighting Covid-19.
It has been a silent Eid-ul-fitri for Muslims who from Saturday throughout Sunday have been silently marking Eid-ul-fitri prayers at-home.
The government announced Monday as a public holiday for the celebrations.
However, the government appealed to Muslim faithful to observe health measures to avoid contracting the disease.
