The group, however, urged Muslims to adhere strictly with the 5 point guideline titled ‘Coping with COVID-19’ which was designed based on the responses to a questionnaire and tabled before scholars and experts.
The five-point guidelines read:

“That worshippers compliance with restrictions during Eid el-Fitri was impressive and it would be praise worthy if similar approach is displayed in the period of Eid el-Adhaa (Ileya festival).

“That the already established protocols of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) should be adhered to as Eid prayers are offered in area mosques and prayer places. However, in the situation where by places of worship are not spacious enough to accommodate numerous worshippers at a time, segmented devotion similar to Salah al-Khawf as highlighted in Q4:102 could be adopted.

“That the naflah of Eid el-Adha, like that of Eid el-Fitr is not obligatory but supererogatory and could be observed in the premises of residential areas. Therefore, efforts should be made to safeguard breach of the laid down measures in order to avoid unnecessary contacts that may lead to wider spread of the virus.

“Families and close relations should keep together as much as possible and pray to Almighty Allah to bring the pandemic to an end very soon.

“In order to compensate the generality of the people for cooperating with the authorities, governments should intensify efforts, not only in finding effective and lasting remedy to COVID-19 but also in handling all matters relating to the pandemic with utmost sincerity and truthfulness.”
