Video from Al-Mukminin Mosque on steps when visiting the mosque
From 11 December 2020, all the mosques in Singapore will make the prayer call for Friday prayers at 12:50 p.m. The prayer call will be made earlier than normal, just before the sun passes its zenith, which typically marks the time for Zuhur.
The implementation of performing Friday prayers before the actual Zuhur time is to ensure that as many congregants as possible will continue to be able to pray their Friday prayers in our mosques, even as Zuhur prayer will gradually commence at a later time in the coming weeks. Given our context, the Fatwa Committee determined that this is permissible, to preserve the interest and welfare of our Muslim community, in line with our Islamic principles.
At the same time, we would like to highlight that it is only applicable for those who are praying Friday prayers at the mosques. Others performing the Zuhur prayer at homes or at workplaces will still need to abide by the actual Zuhur timing.
Kindly note that all arrangements are by appointment only. Please contact the mosque directly to place your arrangements, subject to availability of space.
Children below the age of 12, those with pre-existing chronic respiratory conditions and those 60 years old and above are highly encouraged to continue praying at home. As they are more vulnerable to get an infection, it is best that they are not exposed to the risk by going out and attending congregational prayer.
