Wednesday will be the last and 30th day of Ramadan in the UAE. The committee met on Tuesday night for the sighting of the crescent moon.
Mosques across the UAE would host socially distanced Eid Al Fitr prayers this year, it was announced on Monday. Strict Covid safety protocols will be in place for the prayers.
The mosques will also open only 15 minutes before prayer time, but ablution spaces will continue to remain closed.
