Four mosques will offer more spaces for Friday prayers on Jun 25 as part of a pilot by the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (Muis) in Phase 3 (Heightened Alert). 

The Masjid Al-Istighfar, Masjid Ar-Raudhah, Masjid Assyafaah & Masjid Mujahidin mosques will open an additional zone for worshippers. However, congregants need to be fully vaccinated or test negative in the pre-event testing before entry. 

Muis added that if the situation remains stable over the subsequent weeks, it will open up more spaces at more mosques.

“As more congregants in the community complete their vaccination or get used to pre-event testing procedures, Muis eventually hopes to be able to safely accommodate the maximum allowed number of places under Phase 3 (Heightened Alert),” it said.  

In the meantime, mosques will continue to offer 50 places for congregational prayer every day, with bookings through the mosque online booking system.

Muis added that more details on the new Safe Entry check-in procedures that will be implemented will be provided in the coming weeks. More information on the resumption of other activities in the mosque, such as aLIVE classes, will also be provided in due course.

“We thank the community for its patience and cooperation in this journey with us to resume more activities in our mosque safely,” said Muis.
