Observing Ramadan in Bahrain during the Covid-19 crisis

download 5 Observing Ramadan in Bahrain during the Covid-19 crisis

The month of Ramadan is round the corner. Below are some decisions the Kingdom of Bahrain have taken, keeping in mind the present situation:  

  • Iftar (breaking fast) will be limited to small family gatherings
  • People are refrained from hosting and attending Public Iftar Banquets, Ghabghas, Ramdan Majlises etc
  • It is replacing Zakat Al-Fitr kiosks with electronic platforms and applications for collection and distribution of Zakat Al- Fitr
  • Unlike most of its Gulf neighbours, Bahrain will host some public Taraweeh prayers in its al-Fateh Grand Mosque. However, the prayers will only involve the imam and five people at a time under social distancing rules. The prayers will likely be shown on television, according to sources familiar with the matter.
  • Elsewhere in the kingdom, mosques and prayer rooms are still suspended following a March 23 announcement.

Following are a few measures from some countries.

  • Egypt: Religious authorities have barred the charity tables and the mosques have been shut since last month
  • Saudi Arabia has revised its coronavirus curfew timings for the month of Ramadan allowing residents to go out for necessary needs between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. It is suspending visas for Muslims seeking to make pilgrimages to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina, popular during this month.
  • UAE has also advised that prayers can be held at home during Ramadan, as mosques currently remain closed.
