Permits for all Ramadan tents in Dubai this year have been cancelled as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department (IACAD) in Dubai said that there will be no tents allowed outside mosques, houses or any other public places during Ramadan.

These tents are often used to serve free food to various members of the community during the holy month of fasting.

The IACD said that that the decision to cancel the permits for Ramadan this year was made in order to adhere to the precautionary protocols set out by the government.

Officials in Dubai have recently confirmed that the existing Covid-19 restrictions will remain in place until the start of Ramadan in mid-April.

Ahmed Darwish Al Muhairi, executive director of the Charitable Sector at IACAD, noted that IACAD places health and safety among its priorities, explaining that all precautionary measures would be taken to ensure health and safety for all during Ramadan.

He added that the authority would continue to reach out to the needy through its digital Meals of Hope initiative during Ramadan.

Although the dates for Ramadan in the UAE have not yet been confirmed, it is expected to begin on Monday, April 12.
