Muslims will most likely spend Ramadan very differently than usual.

With just one week before the holy month, Indonesia reported more than 5,000 cases of coronavirus and the number continues to rise.

The Ministry of Religious Affairs issued guidelines earlier this month for prayers during the fasting month and for Eid al-Fitr 1441 Hijri amid the pandemic.

Worshippers are advised to have sahur, or pre-fast meal, and iftar — the fast breaking dinner, individually or with family.

Special night prayers called tarawih, and Quran recital should also be performed at home.
