Egypt’s Al-Azhar issues Fatwa Upon President Request to Suspend Juma Prayers in Pakistan

President of Pakistan Dr. Arif Alvi had pursued assistance from Egypt’s Al-Azhar on Jumma suspension in Pakistan to halt deadly virus. The heart-rending decision is being taken on national interest to save the ummah to get infected from a lethal virus.

Moreover, President Alvi through Egypt’s ambassador in Pakistan had sought guidance from Al-Azhar institution, an authority on Islamic injunctions, for a word on the suspension of congregational prayers at mosques amid a spike in coronavirus cases.

The president said in a tweet on Wednesday

 “I am thankful to Grand Imam Shaikh of Al-Azhar and Supreme Council for responding to my request to guide us concerning Farz Jamaat and Juma prayers in mosques during coronavirus attack”

President Alvi appealed country’s Ulmaa’s to take action on the fatwa of Egypt’s Al-Azhar institution that considered it chastely Islamic to cancel Friday prayers over coronavirus fears. Moreover, Dr. Alvi mentioned that the countries already suspending congregational prayers included the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Algeria, Tunisia, Jordan, Kuwait, Palestine, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, and Egypt.

Particulars of the Fatwa

“Public gatherings, including congregational prayers at mosques, could result in the spread of coronavirus and the governments of Muslim countries had full jurisdiction to cancel such events. It also emphasized amending Azaan (call to prayer) with words ‘Salaat Fi Buyut-e-Kum’, meaning ‘pray in your homes’ instead of the usual ‘come to prayer’. Also, families within their homes can arrange group prayers. Muslims must abide by the health instructions of the state in case of crisis and avoid following rumors and unofficial information. As per reliable medical reports, the coronavirus spreads very easily and quickly.

In this situation, saving human lives and protecting them from all risks and threats was in line with the great concept of Islam. Because of risks to the lives of people, the officials in Muslim countries have full authority to cancel Friday prayers and other congregational prayers. Furthermore, older people should remain at their homes and follow the stated medical guidelines as all pieces of evidence clearly show that public gatherings, including prayers, constitute a conducive environment for the virus.”

The fatwa Cites Abu Dawood Narrating Ibn Abbas, who recounted that Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) said

“That fear of sickness is an excuse for missing Juma payers.”

Moreover, Abd Al-Rahman Ibn Auf stated that the Prophet (PBUH) prohibited those with unpleasant smell to avoid going to mosques to protect other faithful from disturbance.

May Allah Almighty forgive us.
