SHAH ALAM,  Jan 13 — Friday prayer and the congregational obligatory prayers at mosques and surau in Selangor will be suspended during  implementation of the 14-day Movement Control Order (MCO)  starting today.

Selangor Islamic Religious Department (JAIS) director Datuk Mohd Shahzihan Ahmad said the Friday prayer will be replaced with Zohor prayer at home during the period.

However, he said, for mosques and surau permitted to hold Friday and obligatory prayers, they are allowed to hold the prayers, but only five of the mosque or surau officials allowed for each prayer at one single time.

For marriage solemnisation, he said, it will be conducted through video conference only to couples who have obtained permission to get married and the date of the marriage set by the District Islamic Religious Office (PAID) or mosques concerned.

“The marriage solemnisation through video conferencing will be conducted by the registrar (of marriage) at  PAID, while the bride and groom, wali (guardian) and two witnesses are at home.

“The district Religious Administrative Officer (PTA) will set the marriage solemnisation ceremony based on the appointment that has been arranged, “he said in a statement today.

Meanwhile,  Mohd Shahzihan said JAIS’ main services, especially involving marriage, divorce and “rujuk” (reconcile), will be conducted online, and the department had also set up 10 telephone line counters for the public to call for consultation and to make appointments.

According to him, for any inquiries, customers can call 03-5514 3600 or 03-5514 3400 during office hours from Monday to Friday, or email to [email protected]
