With regard to the increasing hazard of the coronavirus, the Kuwaiti mosques have changed the Adhan performed in Kuwait. Azaan now asks the people to pray in their homes. This step was taken as a precautionary action in order to secure the citizens from COVID-19.
The Muezzins present in the Kuwaiti mosque changed the adhan by replacing “haya alas- salah” (come to prayer) by “Al-salatu fi Buyutikum” (pray in your homes) requesting locals to pray within their houses.
When inquired about the change by Dr. Abdullah Al-Sanad, the health spokesperson of Kuwait, he stated that this move has helped them in avoiding the virus spread. This act was opted by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) during the days of heavy rain and wind.
