The SOP will be set by the Johor Islamic Religious Department (JAINJ) and the Ministry of Health.
It’s been almost 5 months since the COVID-19 outbreak hit the world. Since then, all of us have not been able to go to our respective worship houses to perform prayers. However, Johor is taking an initiative to allow Friday and Aidilfitri prayer, as well as the ‘Akad Nikah’ (marriage solemnization) during CMCO but with conditions.
Johor Allows Friday, Aidilfitri Prayer & Akad Nikah But With Conditions
However, State Islamic Religious Affairs Committee chairman Tosrin Jarvanthi said, the implementation must be in compliance with the SOP set by the Johor Islamic Religious Department (JAINJ) and Ministry of Health.
Moreover, for Friday and Aidilfitri prayers at the mosques, it is allowed from May 15th onwards, with the number of the congregation being limited to only 12 people. The 12 individuals include the Imams (first and second), Bilal, Siak, and eight mosque committee members only. For other Muslims, they can still perform the prayers at their own home.
In addition, as for the ‘Akad nikah’ ceremony, it can be held from May 17th onwards but only at the district Kadi offices and attendees must be limited to six people including the couple, guardians, and witnesses.
Follow The Predefined Guidelines!
Stay safe and always follow the guidelines for all parties’ ease. Always be patient and persevere in this trying times with the enforcement of the third phase of the CMCO.
