Ramadan in Bahrain 2020: Isha and Taraweeh prayers to be broadcast from Al Fateh Grand Mosque

Bahrain is set to broadcast the Friday sermon and the Ramadan Isha and Taraweeh prayers from Al Fateh Grand Mosque.

The imam and four people will be allowed into the mosque for the recordings, and they will have to follow social distancing rules by staying at least two metres away from each other and wearing face masks.

The Minister of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments has said the aim is to broadcast the prayers through audio-visual media throughout the month of Ramadan and enable listeners and viewers to benefit from them.

Ramadan is expected to start on Thursday or Friday, depending on the sighting of the moon, and will last 29 or 30 days.

Mosques across Bahrain have been closed since last month as part of precautionary measures to stop the spread of coronavirus.

The Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs said there was no objection to suspending prayers in mosques.
