Offer Prayers from Home during this Ramzan.

The Superintendent of Mecca Masjid has requested all Muslims across the world to offer prayers from their homes along with their families instead of visiting the mosque during this Ramadan period. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 this year, all festivals are celebrated by being at home to keep ourselves protected from the deadly virus. 
“From tomorrow, holy Ramzan month is going to start, so I request all to pray to God at their residences as there is an outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic. This time pray with your family and bring prosperity to your homes,” said Mohammed Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui, Superintendent of Mecca Masjid, while speaking to ANI. With the sighting of the moon, Ramzan will begin on April 24, while April 25 will be the first day of Roza.
