Thousands of Muslims attend the Eid Al-Fitr Prayer in Purwokerto Square, Banyumas, Central Java, on Wednesday (6/5/2019).

JAKARTA, KOMPAS— The Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) issued a fatwa, allowing Muslims to perform Idul Fitri prayers on Syawal 1, 1441 Hijriah at home. The decision was made through a virtual meeting of the MUI Fatwa Commission in Jakarta on Wednesday (13/05/2020). This fatwa is also in line with the earlier appeal of Religious Affairs Minister Fachrul Razi.

In comparison, from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, it was reported that the local Interior Ministry has issued a regulation, banning people from leaving the house for the whole day during the Idul Fitri holiday. The ban will continue until the fourth day after Idul Fitri, which is expected to fall on May 24 2020.
