Friday prayers in Selangor suspended for a month

KLANG: Friday prayers at all mosques in Selangor have been suspended until April 17.

However, Muslims are required to replace the Solat Jumaat with Solat Zohor in their respective homes during the period of suspension.

The directive came via a statement from the Selangor palace which was signed by Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah’s private secretary Datuk Mohamad Munir Bani.

The statement said that gatherings, talks and activities in all mosques, surau and prayer venues were also suspended until April 17.

“If the spread of Covid-19 is under control before then, a new directive will be issued, ” said Mohamad Munir in the statement.

The usual call to prayer (azan) will continue as usual and Muslims in Selangor are requested to recite the Qunut Nazilah, which is a prayer recited during periods of calamity.
