Abidjan, Apr 29 (EFE).- Muslim families in Ivory Coast have been praying at home during the holy month of Ramadan as the mosques were closed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.Muslims around the world celebrate the holy month of Ramadan by praying during the night time and abstaining from eating, drinking, and sexual acts during the period between sunrise and sunset (Camera: LEGNAN KOULA).FOOTAGE SHOWS A IVORIAN MUSLIM FAMILY PRAYING AT HOME DURING THE RAMANDAN DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.SOUNDBITES: KONÉ ADAMÁ, AN IVORIAN MUSLIM (IN LOCAL LANGUAGE).TRANSLATIONS: My name is Koné Adama. I just prayed at home. There is a big difference between praying at home and praying in the mosque. What is recommended is to pray in the mosque, but due to the coronavirus it is forbidden to go, a decision made by the authorities, so we pray at home. I believe that the decision to close the mosque is to preserve our health. It also benefits everyone who pray at home.
