Low Friday prayer attendance in Sultanate amid COVID-19


Attendance was low for the weekly Friday prayers, while hand sanitisers were placed at mosques, suraus and prayer halls across Brunei, as the nation witnessed an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases. Several congregants also wore face masks and had even brought their own prayer mats. Broken rows with huge gaps in between were visible at the Jubli Perak Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mosque in Kampong Jangsak, Al-Ameerah Al-Hajjah Maryam Mosque in Jerudong and Duli Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Damit Mosque in Bebatik Kilanas. The low turnout resulted in more availability of car parking space. More details in Weekend’s Borneo Bulletin
