31 Mar 2020 1TV News

Afghanistan's Haj and Religious Affairs on Tuesday issued a fatwa that advises people to avoid going to mosques for congregational prayers during coronavirus lockdown.

According to the fatwa, since fear could be a legitimate reason for not attending congregational prayers, refusing it will not carry sin.

It said that congregational prayers including weekly Friday ones could be performed with the least number of participants including those based in the mosques and their immediate surroundings.

People having coronavirus symptoms have been strongly urged to avoid mosques.

The fatwa also says that people who have died from coronavirus could be buried without having them washed or wrapped in winding-sheet.
