Mosques and other places of worship all over the country have been closed since March.

Dubai's Burj Khalifa is to light up with a special LED show on Thursday, July 2, 2020.

The show is to be paired with Isha’a Prayer Adhan in the voice of Mevlan Korchi.

To mark the reopening of mosques in the UAE, the Burj Khalifa, on Wednesday night, was also illuminated with a call to prayer message being played over the public address system.

Mosques and other places of worship all over the country have been closed since March to preserve the safety of citizens and residents.

The suspension of public prayers in all places of worship was announced by the authorities on March 16, and this was extended until further notice on April 9.

The first socially-distanced prayers in the country were offered on Wednesday morning as mosques reopened at 30 per cent capacity. However, Friday prayers will remain suspended until further notice.

All members of the public are required to adhere to preventive measures set by the UAE's General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments (Awqaf) when they go to mosques.
