The ministry’s spokesman, Ahmed al-Qadi, said in televised interviews: The Endowments  Ministry is studying a proposal to open mosques for imams in Ramadan to perform Tarawih prayers  without  worshipers as in Saudi Arabia.

After  dissmissing  the Egyptian Endowments  Ministry  spokesman, Minister Gomaa stressed that there is absolutely no way to lift the suspension of the establishment of collective and communal prayers, including Tarawih prayer during Ramadan.

He explained that the idea of setting up Tarawih in mosques this year is not valid, whether by worshipers or without.

And he added, “The prostrate before the mosque.”

He stated that the worshiper who used to go to the mosque, and he was legally imprisoned with an excuse, wrote  to him  the reward for going to the mosque  complete and without detracting from it.

It is reported that the Endowments Ministry  had decided on March 21 to suspend the gathering prayer for groups and groups, close all mosques and only raise the call to prayer, as a precautionary measure taken by the state to limit the spread of the Corona virus.

On the other hand, social media pioneers  considered that the Endowments Minister’s statements about closing mosques in Ramadan were violent and aggressive.

The writer, Gamal Sultan, said: The successive threats from the Egyptian Ministry of Endowments against those who think of a small collective prayer in thier homes with thier  families during Ramadan and the repeated waving and cramping with the arrest and detention of “caught confusing”, it seemed as if they were chasing drug dealers, for example, these are foolishness and bad manners in a country Full of chaos and full underworld studios.

Al-Deeb indicated that there is evidence condemning theEndowments Minister, but the regime refused to investigate or refer to him.
