Rampur (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Mar 26 : The Ulemas (Muslim clerics) of the Uttar Pradesh have appealed to the Muslims to offer Jumma Namaz or Friday prayers at their homes instead of assembling at the mosques as a precautionary step to curb the risk of Covid-19.

"There will be only five people in the mosques - An Imam (one who leads the congregation), a Muezzin (who gives out Azaan or call to prayer)and three others - for the Namaz. We appeal to the people to follow this directive," said a cleric.

The Ulemas have requested the people to pray to God that the coronavirus pandemic is removed from the world.

As many as 649 positive cases of COVID-19 have been reported from the country, including 47 foreign nationals, said the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on Thursday.
