Srinagar: Anjuman-e-Sharie Shiayan on Friday announced suspension of all religious activities during the holy month of Ramazan, amid the threat of Covid-19 spread.
The decision to suspend religious activities was taken during a meet of the Anjuman convened by the President Aga Syed Hasan Almosvi Alsafvi, who is under house arrest since August 5, 2019, reports said. During the meeting, it was also decided that no invitation will be extended to any international delegates of ‘Qaris or Naat Khawns’ as has been the practice.
“The congregational Quran Khwani and recitation training will also not take place in the coming holy month due to the prevailing situation” the senior religious leader said.
He urged people to pray individually at their homes and explore spirituality with Allah (SWT).
“Performing social responsibility is of utmost importance so voluntarily donate alms and charity, share your surplus and make supplication for well-being of every person of the world,” he said, adding that Anjuman’s Quick Reaction Team (QRT) is already in place to extend any possible help and establish links of social-caring.
