IMPAR Appeals all Muslims to pray from home till June 30th 2020
New Delhi : IMPAR welcomes Shahi Imam Syed Ahmad Bukhari’s decision of keeping the historic Jama Masjid closed for Namaz till 30th June 2020. The historic decision to close Masjid for Namaz has been taken in view of the critical conditions created by the Covid-19 surge in Delhi. This decision was taken after consulting various Islamic scholars and public intellectuals.
The Shahi Imam placed priority on saving lives during the pandemic and categorically stated that the decision of closing the mosque does not clash with the sharia. A select few people shall perform the daily five times Namaz in the mosque while for other worshippers the mosque will remain closed. The development comes after the Shahi Imam’s Secretary Amanullah Khan’s death due to Covid 19 infection at the Safdar Jung Hospital on Tuesday night.
