'Tahajjud' Prayers Ramadan Guidelines in the UAE

A government briefing held on Tuesday confirmed that mosques in the UAE are allowed to hold 'Tahajjud' prayers (special night-time prayers) during the last 10 days of Ramadan.

The prayers will be held between 12:00 am and 12:30 am with a duration of not more than 30 minutes. and mosques will be closed immediately after the prayers.

The precautionary measures for the 'Tahajjud' prayers in mosques will be similar to 'Taraweeh' prayers.

The UAE Fatwa Council has also advised elderly people, those with chronic diseases, and women to perform the prayers at home.

"Availability of vaccines is a key achievement in the UAE’s battle against pandemic. It's available to all for free in all centers operating at max. capacity, which requires all to cooperate & start getting vaccine & reach acquired immunity due to vaccination." stated NCEMA on its Twitter page.
