FPCI: Ramadan During COVID-19

Ramadan is known as the time when gatherings and activities such as communal prayers, communal meals or banquets are conducted every day amongst family, friends, and also the mosque community.

However, with the current COVID-19 pandemic, governments and the World Health Organization (WHO) have taken several measurements to ensure a safe Ramadan practice while maintaining social distancing. As a result, physical worships such as communal prayers and religious sermons have been avoided and prayers are conducted at home using virtual alternatives.

How should religious leaders, governments, and institutions work together to ensure that religious worships do not get in the way of people’s health and safety?

FPCI and the 1000 Abrahamic Circles virtual #FPCIPublicDiscussion, “Ramadan During COVID-19: How Countries And Communities In Indonesia, The United Kingdom, And Pakistan Ensure A Safe Ramadan Amidst The Pandemic” held on Saturday, 16th May 2020 at 9:00-10:30 am (London time).
