Kota Kinabalu: Sabahan Muslims will have to make their Hari Raya Aidilfitri prayers at home this year as mosques and suraus will remain close until May 26 as part of the state's Movement Control Order to contain Covid-19.

Sabah Mufti Datuk Bungsu @ Aziz Jaafar in a statement Tuesday said the closures remain affecting daily prayers and Friday prayers on May 15 and 22, as well as prayers for Hari Raya Aidilfitri which will fall either on May 23 or 24.

"It's obligatory to make the zuhur [noon] prayers on those Fridays and other obligatory prayers at home during this period," he said, adding the decision took into account syariah foundations and maqasid syariah (objectives of syariah) for the good of Muslims.
