More Than 50 Clerics Warn Govt Not To Ban Taraveeh Prayers In Ramzan

  • 34

More than 50 clerics belonging to the political and non-political religious groups on Monday warned the government not to extend the restrictions on praying in mosques during the upcoming month of Ramzan. They announced that five times prayers, Friday and Taraweeh congregations would be offered in the mosques during the holy month.

According to a news report published in DAWN, a dozen of clerics held a meeting in Jamia Darul Uloom Zakria, Islamabad to discuss the government’s measures to counter the deadly coronavirus. The meeting was attended by senior clerics representing various seminaries, banned groups, proscribed persons and political and non-political parties.

After the meeting, they released a video clip, showing clerics of Jamiat Ulema Islam-Fazl (JUI-F), Aalmi Tanzeem Khatam-i-Nabuwat, and proscribed persons including a representative of banned group Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ), sitting in close proximity of each other.

A JUI-F member and President Jamia Darul Uloom Zakaria Azizur Rahman Hazarvi announced the decision that all their efforts would be made to avoid clash and confrontations with the government and the state institutions.

The meeting did not acknowledge the official directives of a maximum of five persons inside mosques for the collective prayers as the clerics said that the testing times demanded more time for prayers and announced that apart from the five times prayers, Friday and Taraweeh congregations will continue in Ramzan with precautionary measures.

The closure of mosques, shutting down Friday prayers and Taraweeh is unacceptable to the countrymen,” Azizur Rehman Hazarvi said. He insisted that in order to get rid of the virus, it was imperative to seek forgiveness from Allah and increase the populace in the mosques countrywide.
