Islamic Foundation has urged Muslims to come to mosques only to offer the farz or obligatory prayers of Jummah.

It requested all concerned to do wudu or ablution and offer their sunnah prayers at home, said a press release on Friday.

Earlier, the Islamic Foundation has advised returnees from abroad, persons suffering from fever, cough and cold and coronavirus-like symptoms, to avoid going to mosques and public gatherings to curb the spread of the deadly virus.

It also called on the khatibs and imams of mosques to offer special prayers for all so that they stay safe from the coronavirus and discuss the coronavirus issue with utmost importance during the “khutba” of Jummah prayers.
