KANGAR (Bernama): Obligatory prayers in mosques in Perlis will be allowed to be held at maximum capacity beginning Friday (Jan 29).

The Raja Muda of Perlis Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail, in a statement issued by the Islamic Religious Council and Malay Custom Perlis (MAIPs) Thursday (Jan 28), said the Raja of Perlis Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Putra Jamalullail had consented to this.

Tuanku Syed Faizuddin, who is also MAIPs president, said the permission was given as the pandemic was currently under control in the Perlis.

"Beginning from dawn (prayers) tomorrow (Jan 29) until Isyak time on Feb 4,2021, or until a later date which may be determined, mosques will be allowed to hold congregational prayers with maximum attendance, according to the size of the mosque," he said.

However, he said the permission only applied to mosques and hostel suraus, but activities in other suraus in the state were still on hold.

"Members of the congregation should be from the vicinity of the mosque, aged from 15 and 59," he said.

He also reminded the public to adhere to the set health and safety standard operating procedures. – Bernama
