The Isha prayers will be offered five minutes after the call for prayer (Azan) during the holy month of Ramadan in Dubai. Mosques will be closed immediately after Taraweeh prayers are completed. Worshippers praying in mosques must bring their own prayer mats. They should also avoid handshakes and any other physical greetings.
