Safe distance and proper hygiene have to be maintained while offering prayers at mosques
Jummatul Wida, the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan, will be observed across Bangladesh on Friday with due religious solemnity and reverence.
Muslim devotees will attend the Jumma prayers at different mosques, seeking divine blessings for peace and progress of Bangladesh and unity of the Muslim ummah.
The day's biggest congregation will be held at Baitul Mukarram National Mosque in Dhaka, reported UNB.
Muslim devotees will offer prayer at Baitul Mukarram maintaining physical distance, per the government directives to stay safe and avoid Covid-19 infection.
Bangladesh reported its first Covid-19 cases on March 8 and the first death on March 18. As the number of cases increased, the government restricted offering prayers at mosques.
After about a month, the government lifted the restrictions on condition that safe distance and proper hygiene have to be maintained while offering prayers at mosques.
