Prayers for Eid al-Adha will be at home in UAE

CAIRO, July 22 (Reuters) - The United Arab Emirates’s citizens will hold prayers for Eid al-Adha, a four-day Muslim holiday, at homes instead of mosques while calls to prayers will be broadcasted, a spokesman for the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) said on Wednesday.

Saif al-Dhaheri also added in a virtual news conference that starting Aug. 3 the capacity of mosques will be raised to 50%. (Reporting by Nayera Abdallah, Editing by Franklin Paul)
