Bahrain has suspended all prayers and religious events at mosques for two weeks, effective from today (February 11), a media report said.




Friday prayers and sermon will continue to be aired live from the Ahmed Al Fateh Islamic Centre, in the presence of a limited number of worshippers, reported Bahrain News Agency (BNA).

The Ministry of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments announced the two-week suspension, based on the religious opinion of the Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (SCIA) and in line with the recommendations of the National Medical Taskforce for Combating Covid-19.

The ministry said that the mover, which was coordinated with the Sunni and Jafferi Endowments Directorates, aims to protect elderly people in light of spiking infections.

The ministry added that the decision will be subject to periodic review, based on developments.
