The Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs has called on all worshipers to adhere to all the precautionary measures announced, and to cooperate with the organizers.

The call to prayer will be in its original form, without mentioning the phrase "pray in your homes" in all mosques.

This is in accordance with what has been announced regarding the reopening of mosques for prayers (with the exception of Friday prayers) starting at dawn on Monday, June 15, with a limited number of mosques which have already been announced.

These are:

  • Don't come early for the prayers, mosques will open with Athan (Azan) only
  • Do ablution at home before going to the mosque. The mosque's bathrooms and ablution place will be closed.
  • Keep a safe distance of two meters from each other. Do not crowd inside the mosque.
  • Avoid shaking hands with others even while wearing gloves.
  • Cover your mouth and nose while sneezing and coughing.
  • Show your EHTERAZ application when you enter the mosque.
  • Cooperate with the committee or people in charge of managing the mosque.
  • Put your prayer mat in the places with signs only.
  • Bring your own prayer mat to the mosque. Do not share it with others and do not leave it in the mosque.
  • Wear a face mask even inside the mosque.
  • Bring the holy Quran from home and do not share it with anyone. Or read the holy Quran from the phone or complete reading at home.
  • As per precautionary measures, people who are suffering from chronic disease are to pray and read the Quran at home.

The Ministry advises the elderly and the chronically ill to pray in their homes for the sake of their health, and calls upon those who find in themselves with disease symptoms to excuse themselves from praying in mosque, in order to preserve his health and that of other worshipers.
