Eid al-Fitr prayers to be broadcast from Bahrain’s Al Fateh Grand Mosque

Eid al-Fitr prayers will be performed at Al Fateh Grand Mosque, the Ministry of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments has said.

Only the imam and a small number of people will be present for the prayers, which will be broadcast live on TV and on radio.

The prayers will take place on either Saturday (April 23) or Sunday (April 24), depending on whether Ramadan is 29 or 30 days this year. This will be decided by the Moon-Sighting Panel.

Imams in other mosques will be allowed to proclaim the traditional Eid takbeers, but there will be no prayers.
Isha and Taraweeh prayers have been broadcast from Al Fateh Grand Mosque throughout Ramadan this year, with just one imam and four other people present to record them for broadcast.

While broadcasting, each person has to wear a mask and practice social distancing.
