The authorities ask devotees to perform sunnah prayers and ablution at home

The Ministry of Religious Affairs on Wednesday issued mandatory guidelines for offering prayers in congregation at mosques across the country during the seven-day hard lockdown from Thursday.

According to an announcement from the ministry, which also made wearing masks mandatory, the elderly people, children and the sick are requested to abstain from going to mosques.

According to the same announcement, each mosque should have enough soap, water, and sanitizer to ensure health hygiene.

The ministry urged devotees to perform sunnah prayers and ablution in their respective residences.

In its guideline, the ministry said, the devotees must bring their personal prayer mats as authorities will not be allowed to lay out carpets on mosque floors.

Local administrations will take legal action against those who will violate the directives, the notification added.
