The Muslim Judicial Council (MJC) has released guidelines for the reopening of masajid, as South Africa eased into Alert Level 2 at midnight on Monday. It follows at least five months of many masajid being closed, with a limited number reopening under Alert Level 3 which was instituted to help save the ailing economy.
Yusufeyyah Masjid in Mosque Road, Wynberg, has become the latest in a string of religious institutions targeted by thieves during the Covid-19 lockdown.
In a statement released by the MJC, they have urged all masajid to ensure strict protocols are ensured at all times. The MJC will consult with medical professionals on the current developments.
