Saudi Arabia Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Call and Guidance has announced the readiness of 20,700 Mosques and outdoor prayer areas around Saudi Arabia for Eid Al-Fitr prayer.
Report says, preparing and equipping them with safety means have been completed.
More than 6,000 men and women observers have been assigned by the Ministry to monitor the Mosques and prayer areas and follow up on the operations of the maintenance and operating companies.
The Ministry has also called on people to contact them in case anyone monitors or notices something that needs to be fixed in providing services.
It has also called on the Mosques Staff to abide by the Fatwa pronounced by the Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta, which stipulated that if Eid is on Friday, then the person who attended the Eid prayer is permissible to not attend the Friday prayer (Jumu’ah congregational prayer), and only perform the Dhuhr prayer.
But the best and better is to perform them both, the Eid prayer and the Jumu’ah prayer. – SG
