Mosques in the UAE are allowed to hold 'Tahajjud' prayers (special night-time prayers) during the last 10 days of Ramadan.

This was confirmed during the latest government media briefing on Tuesday.

The prayers will be held between 12:00 am and 12:30 am with a duration of not more than 30 minutes. The mosques will be closed immediately after the prayers.

The precautionary measures for the 'Tahajjud' prayers in mosques will be similar to 'Taraweeh' prayers.

The UAE Fatwa Council has also advised elderly people, those with chronic diseases, and women to perform the prayers at home.

During the media briefing, authorities thanked all the community members who got vaccinated against COVID-19, and urged the other eligible groups to do the same.
