Working on Friday is Not an Excuse to Miss Friday Prayers

SHAH ALAM, 25 Nov: Muslims in Selangor are reminded to not make working on Friday an excuse of difficulty in fulfilling the obligation of Friday Prayers.

The Selangor Deputy Mufti, Datuk Abdul Majid Omar, said that instead, this issue relies on the respective individuals in performing the duty.


“We cannot say that working on Friday makes it difficult to perform the Friday Prayers.

“Even if an off day is given, there are still some who do not go for the Friday Prayers and stay home because they do not want to go.

“It is according to each individual. There is enough room for the Friday Prayers and offices also let people off from 12.15, and some even from 12.30pm to 2.30pm,” Abdul Majid said when contacted by Selangor Kini today.

Abdul Majid said that he also performed enforcement on those who do not go for Friday Prayers, including employers who do not let their workers off from time to time.


In Selangor, there are over 300 mosques and suraus that can be used to perform the Friday Prayers, including economic centres, offices and placements.

The atmosphere and facilities provide comfort to Muslims to go to mosques, especially to perform the Friday Prayers.
