Alvida Jumma will be observed on May 22nd, marking the last Friday of Ramadan.
As per Maulana Khalid Rasheed, on the day of the festival the time for Eid namaz will commence from 7.30 am and will continue till 11.30 am. Appreciating the Muslim community for setting a remarkable example of social distancing by respecting the lockdown and offering all the obligatory prayers as well as taraweeh indoors, throughout the past month of Ramadan, Maulana Khalid Rasheed appealed that they should even offer the Alvida Jumma namaz in a similar manner.
“Offer Ramadan’s last Jummah prayers, Alvida namaz at home with 4-5 people collecting together to form a jamaat (congregation) while only those who stay in the masjid will offer Alvida namaz there. In these last few days of Ramadan, do not loiter out for shopping unless there is an emergency,” he said.
