Kuwait to open some mosques
Kuwait will reopen some of its mosques on Wednesday following a three-month closure due to the coronavirus pandemic, reported the official Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) on Sunday.
Mosques in “model residential” and “sparsely-populated” areas will reopen with the noon prayer on Wednesday, said Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Dr. Fahad al-Afasi in a press release via KUNA on Sunday.
However, al-Afasi noted that Friday prayers will only be performed at the Grand Mosque in Kuwait City, where only mosque staff will be allowed to attend in line with current regulations.
The Friday prayer will be broadcast on official Kuwait TV.
The minister added that the mosques that reopen will abide by Kuwait’s precautionary measures aimed at preventing further spread of the coronavirus.
