Another major decision was made by the Sindh government to ban prayer gatherings in mosques across the province to curb the spread of the Coronavirus.
The Sindh government has banned prayer gatherings in mosques from Friday, March 27 to April 5. In this regard, Information Minister Sindh Nasir Shah said that only 3 to 5 people will be able to pray in mosques.
Nasir Shah said that Friday prayers will not be held in any mosque tomorrow. Three to five people will be allowed to pray with the imam mosque.
Earlier, Allama Baqir Abbas Zaidi, leader of the Majlis-e-Wahdat Muslim (MWM) Sindh, has said that Friday prayers, congregation prayers, and other religious and social gatherings should be stopped as a precautionary measure against the Coronavirus.
Leader MWM Allama Baqir Abbas Zaidi said in a statement that according to Fatwa’s followers and jurists Imamia, prayers, congregation prayers and other gatherings should be stopped.
It is to be noted that today, President Arif Alvi has urged the Ulema to play their role in light of the fatwa of Al-Azhar University of Egypt and preach people to pray in their homes.
