During the holy month of Ramdan, Muslims across the world observe stringent fasting from sunrise to sunset. They offer special Taraweeh namaz after opening their fasts and observe the same ritual until Eid. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions on mass gatherings, the Muslim community has been offering Taraweeh prayers and Friday namaz from their homes. The latest government advisory instructs the community to continue following the same for Eid which will be observed nationwide on May 25, this year.
