UAE Leaders Send Ramadan Greetings

Ramadan began today, Tuesday, after the UAE’s moon-sighting committee spotted the new crescent, on Monday after maghrib prayers. Celebrating this occasion, UAE leaders wished Muslims around the world a blessed month.

President Sheikh Khalifa wished leaders and their people good health and well-being, and further progress and prosperity for Arab and Islamic nations.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, wished the people a blessed month.

“We wish the people of the Emirates and in the Arab and Muslim world a blessed month of Ramadan filled with mercy, goodness and blessings,” he tweeted.

Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, said: "The Holy Month of Ramadan is now upon us and we welcome it with great joy. This is a time for patience, contemplation and compassion and we pray for God’s mercy and kindness," he wrote on Twitter

Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Ruler of Sharjah, and the Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, delivered greetings and warm wishes to the President, Sheikh Khalifa, and Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, and to all the Rulers of the UAE.

Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Ruler of Ajman, and Sheikh Saud bin Rashid Al Mualla, Ruler of Umm Al Quwain, sent the same wishes and greetings to the UAE Rulers.

This year, mosques will be open for prayer in the UAE during Ramadan, having been closed last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, there are specific COVID-19 safety measures taking place such as

Capacity limits and mandatory face mask use.

Muslims are also asked to bring their own prayer mats and copies of the Quran.

Setting up iftar tables and distributing food in mosques is prohibited.

The elderly and people with chronic health problems have also been advised to pray at home.
