Riyadh: The Senior Scholars Council has issued a fatwa that corona infected people are forbidden from attending any congregational prayer or Friday prayer at any mosque, Saudi Gazette reported.

The 24th session was held on Wednesday to put a light on the issue of corona infected people can or cannot attend the mosque for daily or Friday prayers at the mosque, as those people attending the mosque would have further spread the disease in the region, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The Senior Scholar Council also gave a fatwa which instructed that if Health officials come to you to do procedures or to quarantine a person, it is obligatory as per shariah that the person listens to the concerned bodies as well as infected people should not go to mosques either.

The Senior Scholars Council also added that if someone is infected or currently is in quarantine should pray in isolation.
