The Friday prayer speech must not last longer than 10 minutes. Mosques must operate at 30% capacity. All worshippers must wear a mask and bring their own prayer mat. Ablution must also be performed at home.
Dr Saif Al Dhaheri, Spokesperson of the NCEMA, said that mosques across the UAE will reopen for worshipers 30 minutes before the Friday prayer. They will then close 30 minutes later.
“Worshipers should also avoid touching surfaces and door handles. They have to adhere to and maintain clear spacing signs to avoid any possible crowding”, he said.
