The General Secretariat of the Council of Senior Scholars of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has urged all Muslims to prepare for the Holy Month of Ramadan and abide by precautionary and preventive health measures when performing all acts of worship
The General Secretariat issued the following recommendations for all Muslims:
First: Muslims shall abide by the decisions of competent authorities in their countries or countries in which they reside, which aim to preserve public health and limit the spread of the novel Coronavirus pandemic.
Second: Muslims shall perform obligatory prayers and Taraweeh prayers at their homes if competent authorities in their countries or countries in which they reside recommend them.
Third: Muslims must avoid gatherings, given that the gathering is considered the main cause of the spread of infection according to relevant medical reports, including communal Iftar and Suhoor meals.
