New Protocol For Taraweeh Prayers In Ramadan In UAE

Taraweeh prayers and religious lectures return to mosques during Ramadan after two years of suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic; these updates were announced ahead of Ramadan, which is expected to start on April 2.

The new updates state that Taraweeh prayers can be held in mosques and chapels throughout Ramadan, given that a social distance of 1 meter is maintained between worshippers.

The updated guidelines for Ramadan include allowing women to pray in mosques, keeping a physical distance of one meter between worshippers.

Earlier, NCEMA had announced that iftar tents would be permitted across the country for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic began in 2020. People attending iftar tents need to stay at least one meter apart, and iftar tents must open two hours before the time of Iftar to reduce crowding and ensure public safety.

Additionally, security guards or volunteers must be present to manage people at the entry and exits of iftar tents. Furthermore, posters at all iftar tent entrances and exits are required to ensure a smooth flow of people.
