CoronaVirus: Advice On Attending Masjid For Salah & Jummah

1.Over 60s are being strongly advised to pray salah at home instead of attending the masjid for congregational prayers

The latest medical guidance we have received is that 1 in every 20 people that contract the Coronavirus (Covid-19) will have aggressive symptoms and potentially die. However, the mortality rate of over 60s who contract the coronavirus (Covid-19) is much higher at 25%.

This decision has not been taken lightly. Families of the elderly are strongly advised to consider the implications of individuals that will pass away from this virus. For example, as the virus can remain active in the victims body for days after their death, the deceased may not be permitted to be given ghusl, their bodies will be sealed in body bags and buried in them immediately. The deceased persons family members may not be able to attend the janazah due to being in self-isolation.

 

2.Prepare Wudu from your home before coming to the masjid

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (رضي الله عنه) reports that Rasulullah (ﷺ) said: “When one performs wudu at home and leaves for the masjid solely to offer salah [in congregation], for every step taken towards the masjid [in this state of wudu] one sin is forgiven, one reward accrued, and one stage is elevated in the Hereafter.” (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 647 and Sahih Muslim 1504)

The wudu facilities in masajids is primarily for travellers who are not able to make wudu from home. Due to the heightened risk of contracting coronavirus (Covid-19) from hard surfaces found in toilets or wudu facilities in masajids, we are advising all masajids to close their wudu facilities. NHS England has issued advice to mosques for keeping congregations safe by ensuring wudu areas have sufficient soap, hand sanitiser and paper towels to ensure visitors are able to comply with hygiene advice.

Bins will be removed from the masajid, therefore any used tissues will need to be disposed of at home.

 

3.Bring your own musalla to the Masajid.

NHS England has also issued the following advice for keeping congregations safe by ensuring carpeted prayer halls are cleaned more regularly than normal and buildings/rooms must be kept well ventilated at all times. Wifaqul Ulama agree with the guidance from the NHS and Government.

As it is not practically possible to sterilise the carpet after every salah, it is strongly recommended that you bring a thin musalla or hand towel to the masajid to do sajdah on. It is also recommended to wash these when you get home. Most viruses wont survive in temperatures over 60 degrees.

 

4) Stay away if you have cold or flu symptoms.

The advice from the UK government is for anyone showing mild symptoms to not leave their home for 7 days from when the symptoms started. This action will help protect others in your community.

When self-isolating, individuals showing symptoms should stay at least 2 metres away from other people in their home, sleep alone, wash their hands more regularly for 20 seconds with soap and water of hand sanitiser.

Particularly, stay away from vulnerable individuals, such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions.

 

5.Seeking medical advice

If you suspect you are showing symptoms, in the first instance, please visit the NHS 111 website for advice on self-isolation. If symptoms worsen, follow their advice, in particular if you exhibit any breathing difficulties. Do not go directly into A&E or your GP surgery without first calling your healthcare professional.
