The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs, Farid Al-Amadi, said the Eid Al-Fitr prayers this year will be held inside the mosques in coordination with the Ministry of Interior, keeping in mind the safety of worshipers. Amadi said in a statement: “Eid prayers in the squares is a Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) that he wanted the worshippers to emulate, because he did not pray in the mosque except during rainy days or if there was an excuse.”However, the Ministry of Interior in order to provide security and safety for worshippers, a decision has been taken to limit Eid prayers inside the mosques in order to protect the lives of worshippers. “We have made arrangements with the Interior Ministry to provide security for worshippers,” he said, noting that “security conditions in the region are not stable and the threats remain, especially since it is very difficult to provide security for worshippers in open areas.” He said, “there are proposals for Eid prayers to be held in some institutions that have walled courtyards and gates which allow us to control the process of entry and exit of worshippers.” “We are called upon to revive the Sunnah, but the safety of the worshippers and their lives is the first priority and this is legitimate according to scholars,” he added.-A.T.
