Taraweeh Prayers to be Broadcast Live from Cairo’s Amr Ibn Al-‘As Mosque

The radio programming is an alternative to the communal prayer, which has been limited due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Ministry of Awqaf has announced that today will be the first evening that the communal Ramadan Taraweeh prayers will be broadcast from the historic Mosque of Amr Ibn Al-‘As— Africa’s oldest mosque.

The Ramadan daily communal prayer will be broadcast on Al-Quran Al-Kareem radio station, where one imam and two mosque employees will be responsible for the programming. The broadcast comes in light of the Coronavirus outbreak which prompted all places of worship to close its doors.

Taraweeh prayers joined a long list of Ramadan activities that have been forced to take a step to the side for the sake of public safety, alongside public Iftars, itikaf rituals, and Ma’edet Rahman.
