KANGAR, June 25 — All mosques in Perlis have been given the green light to reopen their doors for congregational prayers and related activities, including Aidiladha prayers and sacrificial ritual, subject to compliance with the stipulated standard operating procedures.

This was announced by the Raja Muda of Perlis Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail, who is also the president of the Perlis Islamic Religious and Malay Customs Council (MAIPs), in a statement today.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

He also decreed that congregational prayers and religious activities in surau across the state, however, are still not allowed, and Muslims are encouraged to hold such activities in mosques instead.
