Due to the continuous increase in the confirmed cases of covid-19 in Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola, the governor of Osun State has cancelled the Eid-el-Kabir prayer that is meant to take place on Friday.
This decision was made to protect the residents of the state from being exposed to dangers of the corona virus through public gathering, but the Muslims in Osun are not having it as it is one of the most important holiday in the Islamic calendar.
So, as a muslim, what is your take on this? What do you have to say about this new development concerning the Eid-el Kabir Prayers?
Do you think the prayers should still hold in various mosques while adhering to social distancing as they did in the reopened airports or would you prefer to stay at home and observe the prayers?
