Abu Dhabi: If Eid Al Fitr 2023 falls on Friday, 21st April, the Eid prayer and Friday prayer will be performed separately, according to a statement issued by the Fatwa Council of the United Arab Emirates on Friday.

"The issue of performing Friday prayer if Eid Al Fitr falls on Friday is a controversial matter among Muslim scholars, however the Council rules that each sermon is to be held separately on its time as per its sunnah,'' the Council said in a statement.
