He urged that the people should take responsibility themselves and adopt precautionary methods against the pandemic.

People should offer the sunnah prayers at home and also perform ablution (wuzu) from home, Usmani suggested.

“A safe distance should also be kept while standing in lines inside mosques,” Usmani added.
