In order to prevent the virus spread, Jumma Masjid at Kutchery Road, Mylapore has decided not to hold Ramzan special prayers this month. Since the lockdown, the mosque has been closed.
Said Syed Masood Jamali, Chief Imam, Jumma Masjid, Kutchery Road, “Ramzan holy month starts on April 27th, this year. However, to avoid the virus spread, we have planned not to hold the special prayer that usually takes place at the beginning of this month.”
He says, “We have asked our community to carry on with fasting and prayers at their homes.”
Ramzan is an important month in the Islamic calendar that is observed as a time of charity and prayers. The Muslim community observes fasting throughout the month. The festival ends with Eid-al-Fitr celebration on the last day of this month.
