In Goa since 1st July 2020, CORONA positives cases have been on a rise. The state has touched almost 4500 positive cases and it’s an alarming spike in positives cases across the state. The Association of All Goa Muslim Jamats has issued this ADVISORY to the community to be followed during the celebration of EID UL ADHA (Bakrid) 2020

❖ The HILAL COMMITTEE OF GOA met on Tuesday 21-07-2020 and decided that moon was NOT sighted in Goa, hence EID UL ADHA (Bakrid) will be celebrated on 1st August 2020.

❖  EID UL ADHA namaz shall NOT be held at any Masjids or Idgahs across the state of Goa. We request our brothers to offer “Chast Namaz” from their respective homes along with family members. We request you NOT to organize any EID UL ADHA namaz in your locality or open place as this is NOT permissible. Large Gathering / Congregations are still prohibited as per the guidelines issued by Government of India, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare.

❖  We still RECOMMEND that masjid committee should further delay the opening of masjids for another ONE month for regular 5 times namaz keeping in mind the current rise in Corona cases in Goa. In -case any masjid committee feels that they can strictly adhere to the S.O.P / Masjid Safety Measurers provided earlier by us, then they can open their respective masjids ONLY for residents living close to the masjids. Friday namaz still remains prohibited.
