Kuwait working to facilitate Eid Al-Adha prayers

Kuwait's Minister of Justice Dr. Fahad Mohammad Al-Afasi said Tuesday the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs was working with other competent state bodies to make it easy and safe for worshippers to perform Eid Al-Adha prayers on Friday morning.

The interagency coordination has crucial importance this year amid the precautions to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19), Dr. Al-Afasi, who is also Minister Awqaf and Islamic Affairs, said in a press release tonight.

The statement followed a coordinative meeting held by the mosques' sector in the Ministry of Awqaf to review the preparations for the prayers at mosques and in outdoor areas countrywide.

Dr. Al-Afasi noted that the mosques sector plays an important role in raising the public awareness about the correct values and concepts of Islam as well as the health safety.

On July 13, the ministry decided to lift the four-month ban on Friday congregational prayers as from July 17.

Your thinking is like foolish brother. Allah given the brain to use and our eyes to see the things around us. Simply taking Allah name and jump from bldg. will not save you. People are not scared for themself but for their families and innocent children as there is chance they can contract the virus even with close contact. Recently KISR discovered this virus is air borne.
Malls and office are open because if business stop people will starve to death so with all the precautions some essential activities will have risk. But praying to God can be done from the safety of your home without endangering others and yourself.
So please brother, don''t talk like fool and drag Allah name into your thoughtless comment !!

I don’t know in which area they are allowing to pray the Friday prayers. From last week I am carrying my prayer mat in Salmiya Block 12 Masjid''s to perform the Friday prayer but still all the Masjid''s are lockdown. I guess only few Kuwaiti mantaqha Masjid''s are open. Almost all muslims countries and non Muslims countries performing friday prayers but still in Kuwait I believe 80 Masjid''s under lockdown.

When people are allowed in Malls and In offices why can’t we gather in Masjid''s as per Awqaf rules and regulations. I don’t know why we are getting scared in Allah’s House. May Allah knows The best and may Allah protect all of us from coronavirus. Ameen.
