Sierra Leoneans observe Eid amid economic hardship

  • 31 July 2020


    The Ministry of Social Welfare has advised Muslim worshippers who intend to pray on the day of Eid-il-Kabir to observe all Covid-19 preventive measures.

    Eid-il Kabir is observed to honor the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ismael as an act of obedience to God's command.

    The statement by the Social Welfare Ministry means that the government has already given the green light to Muslims across the country to return to their normal places of worship following a meeting with Scholars.
