Muscat: Oman will reopen mosques for Friday prayer, announced by The Ministry of Endowments and Religious Affairs (MERA) on Sunday.

In the statement Said (MERA) : “Based on the approval of the Supreme Committee in charge of examining a mechanism for dealing with Corona pandemic, to grant permits to reopen mosques to hold Friday prayers, starting from the date of September 24, and the application is available electronically from Sunday, through the following link:

The Ministry stresses that it is prohibited to open any mosque to perform the Friday prayer rituals before issuing the necessary electronic permit in this regard, said MERA in the statement.

It is worth noting that Friday prayers were stopped in the Sultanate on March 15, 2020, and after two days the Supreme Committee issued a decision to close all mosques, except for the call to prayers, and on November 10, 2020, the committee decided to gradually reopen mosques after their closure, while continuing not to perform Friday prayer.
