Muslims can offer Taraweeh prayers at home during the holy month of Ramadan, like the five daily obligatory prayers, the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department (IACAD) of the Dubai Government announced on Friday.
The department, in a statement, said that prayers should be done at homes as mosques are closed as part of the county's efforts to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.

Taraweeh prayers - the teaching of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) during Ramadan - can be performed at homes and the heavenly rewards will remain the same as while praying at mosques, clarified the IACAD.
Muslims who pray Taraweeh to finish reading the Holy Quran can hold on to the book in their hands and recite while praying, added the department.
