Azlan Othman

The Ministry of Religious Affairs (MoRA) yesterday announced that nightly Sunnat Tarawikh prayers and other religious activities such as breaking of fast Bertadarus Al-Quran and Qiamullail at mosques for congregates are allowed for the month of Ramadhan.

The ministry also reminded those who attend events at mosques, suraus and religious halls are to comply with COVID-19 preventative measures and regulations and that they must register at these locations using the BruHealth app.

Only green and yellow codes are allowed to enter the premises. MoRA advised people who are unwell to skip these events. Congregants must take their body temperature at entrances as well as bring and use their own, large size prayer mat. Physical distancing between congregants is based on the size of their prayer mats.

Congregants are also discouraged to shake hands. The ministry said that there is no age limit to attend these events.

However all are encouraged to perform ablution from home, wear face masks and sanitise their hands before and after entering the mosque.

The ministry called for gratitude to Allah the Almighty for His blessings in allowing the return to mosques to perform acts of worship in time for Ramadhan.
