Mosques offer more prayer spaces
22 April 2022
1. The Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (Muis) together with the mosque sector will open the booking window for Hari Raya prayer slots on 28 April 2022 at 10.00 a.m. The prayer which is slated to take place on 3 May 2022 will see 66 mosques offering a total of 153,250 spaces.
2. Each mosque will offer at least two sessions of Hari Raya prayer; the first session will be conducted from 7.30 a.m. to 8.15 a.m. and the second session from 8.45 a.m. to 9.30 a.m. Of these 66 mosques, 15 mosques that, based on data, are expecting bigger attendances will offer a third session which will commence from 10.00 a.m. to 10.45 a.m. Congregants attending the third session at these selected mosques may walk-in to perform their prayer with no booking of slots required.
3. Based on attendance patterns and demand throughout Ramadan, 60 mosques will cater to both male and female congregants while six mosques will cater to only male congregants.
4. With the wide range of options available, we encourage the community to plan which sessions would provide a comfortable experience for them, and to consider going to lesser crowded mosques that are located away from neighbourhoods and housing estates. Muis also encourages congregants who are unwell or unable to attend the prayer to cancel their bookings so that others may get the slot.
