Performing the daily prayers is obligatory as long as the person is conscious and in a stable set of mind, even if that person is ill. A sick patient must still perform the obligatory prayer in any possible way except those who are in very critical condition. The issue was discussed during a workshop for the country's Muslimah guidance class teachers, yesterday morning.
More than 70 Muslimah attended the workshop. Among other things, the programme aimed to enhance the knowledge of the teachers or instructors in aspects such as ablution, tayammum and how sick patients perform prayers. The day-long workshop which was organised by the Muslimah Affairs Section of the Mosque Affairs Department, with the cooperation of the State Mufti Department was conducted by two Guidance Officers from the State Mufti Department.
