Can one offer Eid prayers at home via internet


Can we read Eid prayers at home through internet?


Assalamu Alaykum

Thank you for your Question.

According to his eminence Sayyid al-Sistani:

Ruling 1495. The Eid al-Fiṭr and Eid al-Aḍḥā prayer is obligatory during the presence of the Imam (ʿA) and must be performed in congregation. In our time, when the Imam (ʿA) is in occultation, the prayer is recommended and it can be performed in congregation or on one’s own.

so, Yes you can, but not with the intention of congregation but Solo. (I.e. it cannot be offered as Jamaah but Furada)
