The Muslims accorss the world greeted the month of Ramazan or Ramadan this year amid the deadly Coronavirus crisis. Islamic scholars from the world over have cautioned against holding collective iftar dinners and gathering in mosques to perform nightl Tarawih prayers.

One thought on “Muslims welcome Ramazan amid CORONA crisis, scholars issue Guideline”

  1. We are reading and listening so many advices on the eve of Ramazan due to the pandemic but when we don’t see such focus on adapting our social behaviour and economic planning, to be executed post pandemic then it raises questions on our vision of life as a whole. Prayers are subjected to the acceptance of Allah to which we hope the best in return and if any deficiency remains in it whatsoever be is also expected to be forgiven by Him. But if the challenges before the community are not addressed or focussed immediately, it would become more complex in coming days, impacting our socio-economic existence in the country. And for the next generations, the situations may become the lost game.
    Through the collective efforts and appropriate steps, the community could sail through the toughest period, when its socio-economic existence is at stake. It has to introspect deeply and adapt its social behaviour to face the current challenges, shunning the traditional lifestyle and unne cessary rituals in the name of Islam together with the planning of its overall development.
    The gap between haves and havenots must be minimised through financial cooperations, applying professional means. Honesty and integrity should be the core competencies of the community otherwise may lose its identity.
