The Ministry of Religious Affairs has urged the worshipers to observe hygiene rules in the holy Eid-ul-Azha congregation to prevent coronavirus infection. 

In a notification issued on Thursday, 8 instructions have been given regarding the observance of hygiene rules.

The directive states that “no lightings can be done” on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha celebrations. Everyone has to perform “ablution from home” and go to Eidgah and mosque. Soap or hand sanitizer should be kept in the ablution rooms of mosques and Eidgahs to prevent coronavirus infection. Worshippers must come in Eid Jamaat by wearing the obligatory mask.

It has also been said that Janamaz and hats stored in mosques or Eidgahs cannot be used. When standing in queues during Eid prayers, one has to follow social distance and hygiene rules. One row should be kept between two rows during the prayers. 

In case of cattle sacrifice, the instructions of the Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock should be followed.

The Ministry of Religious Affairs has requested the Khatibs and Imams to offer prayers after the Eid-ul-Azha prayers to the Almighty Allah to save them from the pandemic. Besides, Khatib, Imam and mosque management committee and local administration have been requested to implement the directive.
