Authorities in Kuwait have temporarily closed mosques and amended the adhan, the Muslim call to prayer, to include the words “pray in your homes,” as the country struggles to contain the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

Kuwait’s Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs announced on Friday that the five daily prayers usually held at mosques had been cancelled, while several social media videos showed that the adhan was now instructing worshippers not to come to mosques for congregational prayers.

The muezzin, or person who calls for the Muslim prayer, would continue to make the call, authorities said. But instead of “come to pray,” which is typically announced, worshippers were instructed to “pray in your homes”.

The changes are in effect until further notice, the religious ministry said.

  1. This is my first time in my life that Mecca, Kaaba, Mosques are cloced for worshipers.

    No one knows what will happen for people who has no jobs, no earn money, bo foods on the table for kids etc etc

    All leaders of the world have no a good solution at all— just stay home, clean your hands, do not shack hand with others.

    Can Ahmsdiyyah leader, as his claim he is Holy Imam pray to Allah and ask to stop spreading this coronavirous !
