Owing to the possibility of a lot of people attending Friday mosque for the first time in a long time, the National Chief Imam has asked the various Imams in some of the major mosques to hold on with Friday prayers until further notice.

His request is in line with other cautious decisions taken by some leaders in the Christian faith who have also decided to continue with the virtual church services as it was done during the lockdown period.
