QA32

Question

Assalam alaykum warahmotullah wabarakatuh Ustaz, I’m in a situation whereby in our community, my family and I are the only one that has been abiding by the fatwa passed by NSCIA, that is the stay home verdict, however I’ve told and inform all concerned about the verdict but they acted contrary to the opinion of the scholars, meanwhile they’ve came to my abode to pay salam to me for been absence from the masjid but I had not spoken nor attend to them, cos they not all pray but moving from places of which the probability of being a victim is on the higher side, so my question is should I join them after the end of the stay home or go a masjid that I I’ll feel safe?

Answer

Maintain your position on praying at home during this pandemic. When the lockdown is raised and things become normal, no harm in praying with them if you don’t get a better mosque adherring more to the Sunnah.
You can also share some lectures on this Covid 19 issue, or write up, to those in charge of the mosque.
