The Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) has given step by step guidelines on how Muslims can perform Eid prayers at home as a result of the lockdown occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Secretary-General of JNI, Shaykh Dr. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, in a statement, said following the mandate given to the JNI FATWA Committee regarding the year 2020 ‘Eid-el-Fitr Prayer by the Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, the committee urged that Eid-el-Fitr Prayer be observed at home with family members or alone in case the person is alone.

According to the statement: “The Eid-el-Fitr Prayers are two RAKA’AT. Seven (7) TAKBIRAT to be pronounced in the first RAKA’AT, including the opening TAKBIR.

“Then SURATUL FATIHA is read and any other SURAH, preferably SURATUL A’ALA.

“While in the second RAKAH, five (5) TAKBIRAT be pronounced.

“Then SURATUL  FATIHA is read and any other SURAH, preferably SURATUL GHASHIYAH.

“In the case of praying at home, as it may be, the KHUTBAH(sermon) is suspended.

“All the above mentioned are based on the Hadith of Anas Bn Malik in Sahih al-Bukhari and Maliki School of law decisions, in MUKHTASAR, as explained by Al-Kharshi and Al-Munah al-Jalil
