Thousands of people are dying every day infected by the coronavirus worldwide. The deadly virus is also spread in Bangladesh. In this situation, Islamic Foundation Bangladesh (IFB) has called the people to limit the presence at the Jumu’a prayer to prevent its transmission.

The call was made in a press release signed by the Director General of the Islamic Foundation (Additional Secretary) Anis Mahmud on Thursday.

The notice alerts the people to follow the rules of Islam in times of pestilence and disaster in light of the Holy Quran and Sunnah.

The Islamic Foundation has given four directives regarding the crowd in Friday Prayer.

The instructions are:

1. To prevent coronavirus infection and to protect people from mass death threats, as an urgent step, close all public meetings, as well as restrict the presence of respected Muslims in Jumu’a and Jamaat.

2. The mosque will not be closed, but do not go to the mosque unless you are not infected by the lethal coronavirus.

3. People are being urged to comply with the directives that the government and experts are warning.

4. All are also urged to abstain from criminal activities and to continue their repentance, asking forgiveness to Allah and recitation of the holy Quran.
