In a few days' time, we'll be welcoming Hari Raya Puasa 2021 or Eid al-Fitr. Hari Raya celebrations in Singapore are on a smaller scale this year due to safe distancing guidelines. But the good news is that you can still head to the mosque for Hari Raya prayers. If you're wondering how to book Hari Raya prayers at Singapore's mosques or what the guidelines are like, we've got you covered!
How do I book Hari Raya prayers at Singapore's mosques?
Bookings for Hari Raya prayers will open on 11 May 2021, 10AM (Tuesday) and you can book your slot via MUIS' mosque booking portal (similar to Friday prayers and Terawih) or by using the Muslim.sg app. As slots are limited, make sure you set a reminder!

How many prayer timeslots will there be?
Even with increased safe management measures, there will be 3 prayer sessions at most mosques in Singapore. Each session will have 100 congregants, split into 2 zones of 50 people each. Check out this infographic from MUIS for the prayer timeslots and duration of each prayer:

What happens if I've booked a slot but I'm unwell?
If you are unwell or unable to attend the Hari Raya prayers, do cancel your booking immediately so that others will be able to book their prayer slot. You should also stay home if you are unwell and see a doctor to get tested.
What if I can't get a slot at the mosque?
If you are unable to get a slot at the mosque for Hari Raya prayers, don't worry! You can still perform the prayers at home with your family. Head over toSalamSG TV's YouTube channel for the Aidilfitri sermon by the Mufti. Check out our guide to performing the Eid prayers at home.
