With the Covid-19 restrictions being lifted, a total of 401 mosques and prayer grounds across Qatar will host Eid al-Adha prayers, the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs has informed.

Awqaf has published the list of the mosques and prayer grounds on its social media accounts and asked the believers to follow the safety measures.  


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

The Ministry also released the list of 200 mosques where Friday prayers will be held from July 31. Name, number and location of the mosque are available on the Twitter handle of the ministry.

For the Friday prayer, the mosques, according to an Awqaf Tweet, will be opened with the first prayer call, 30 minutes before Friday sermon. They will be closed after 10 minutes of Friday prayers. The Ministry has informed that social distancing will be applied to the Friday sermon and prayers. Women and children will not be allowed in the mosque during Friday prayers. Awqaf has so far asked persons with ailments and old age to perform prayers at home.


The ministry has asked all to abide by the restrictions. “Precaution is obligatory and commitment to precautionary measures helps us to win this epidemic. Do not shake hands even if you are wearing a glove,” a tweet by the ministry said earlier. The worshipers, according to the circular by the ministry, should cover mouth and nose while sneezing, wear face masks as long as they are in the mosques and make ablution at home because the bathrooms and ablution place of the mosques will be closed. The ministry has asked not to go to the mosques earlier because the mosques will be opened only with prayer calls. The believers maintain a distance of two meters and should not gather inside the mosque.

They should bring their own prayer mat and not share with others or leave it in the mosque.

In the first phase, a total of 500 mosques were reopened on June 15 while 299 mosques were made available for prayers in the second phase on July 1. 300 additional mosques were opened from today’s dawn prayer. And the Friday prayer was only held at the Imam Muhammad ibn Abdul-Wahhab in the presence of 40 worshippers, including the imam and the mosque’s employees.
