The decision to broadcast Eid Takbeer comes in response to the Dubai community's wishes.

The Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department in Dubai (IACAD) has announced that Eid Takbeer will be broadcast through various mosques in Dubai on the morning of Eid.

"The broadcast during the current time will help revive the Sunnah and the community's link with the mosques. Congregational prayers continued to be suspended in mosques," the department said. On Wednesday, the UAE government authorities called upon residents to be responsible this Eid and avoid family gatherings.

Mohamed Ali bin Zayed Al Falasi, Executive Director of the Mosques Affairs Sector, said that Eid Takbeer will be broadcast after the Fajer prayer for an hour before sunrise on the first day of Eid from the mosques' minarets. The decision to broadcast Eid Takbeer comes in response to the Dubai community's wishes.

Al Falasi further said broadcasting the Takbeer will lift the community's spirits amidst the current circumstances. Precautionary measures have been imposed to limit the spread of Covid-19 virus and safeguard public health and safety, he stressed.

He called on citizens and residents to stay at home and abide by the precautionary guidelines issued by the authorities.
