Ramadan and Eid's experience is unique this year. Each country is celebrating in different ways. Uzbekistan is one such country where the Ulema Council has given recommendations on how to celebrate Eid this year. Uzbekistan has a population of 34 million with 88% being Muslims.
Acknowledging the current pandemic situation which does not allow Eid al-Fitr prayer to be performed in congregation, the Council of Ulema of the Muslim Board of Uzbekistan has the following recommendations for the celebration of Eid al-Fitr in Uzbekistan:
Taking into account the temporary suspension of public prayers in mosques during the epidemic period, on the basis of the fatwa of the Council of Ulema of the Muslim Board of Uzbekistan, the performance of Eid al-Fitr (Eid al-Fitr) prayers is also exempt from the obligation of Muslims. The brothers and sisters are advised to perform four rakaats of nafl prayer in their homes after the sun rises on the day of Eid.
On the eve of Eid and during holidays, it is recommended to visit and take care of the elderly and the sick and to carry out the traditions of congratulating Eid and other customs in keeping requirements of quarantine.
The Ulema Council makes Dua that our brothers and sisters, in this moment of Allah's mercy and blessings, our hearts soften and our sincerity grows. May He protect the Uzbekistan people from disasters and calamities, and make the lives even more prosperous.
