Eid, Friday prayers will be performed separately: UAE Fatwa Council


Abu Dhabi: If Eid Al-Fitr 2023 falls on Friday, April 21, the Eid and Friday prayers will be performed separately, according to a statement issued by the Fatwa Council of the United Arab Emirates.

“The issue of performing Friday prayer if Eid Al Fitr falls on Friday is a controversial matter among Muslim scholars, however, the Council rules that each sermon is to be held separately on its time as per its sunnah,” the Council said in a statement on Friday.

While taking this fatwa, the Council invokes verses from the holy Quran as well as the sayings and actions of Prophet Muhammad.
