Assalam alaikum Shaykh,
Due to Covid-19,In bangalore(India) some parts are sealed down and some are in lockdown depending on the case sensitivity of a particular area.In this regard, Masjids were not open earlier as it was advised by the authorities not to have a congregational prayer rather pray at home due to above reasons. Very recently, they have allowed to pray in masjids and at the sametime corona cases are doubling up as per the recent reports. so there is a constant fear within the community whether we should pray or not and also we havent prayed in masjids for more than 2 months which obviously means we have missed a Friday prayers as well…shaykh to ease this matter kindly request you to throw some light on this issue. Is there any sin for not praying even if masjids are open now and at the sametime covid cases are at the peak in this region.Your response would be highly appreciated!!! jazakallah khair

I answered this during the live session. However the question should be asked via the bluish/purplish icon above which says: Ask the Sheikh. Allah bless you.

AsalamuAleykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Sheikh Dr. Sajid Umar!
In sha Allah I pray you and your children, wife and all your family members are in the best of health and Iman. My question is a random one.. Sheikh is Mufti Menk your father? Lol..Or if not then is he related to you.. Like I know we are all Muslim brothers and sisters.. but I mean like is he related to you by blood?
I don’t know you both exude very similar characteristics, masha Allah, AND you both kind of look alike and you are both originally from Zimbabwe… every time I listen to Mufti Menks lectures, I remember your lectures, and every time I listen to your lectures I remember Mufti Menks lectures vice versa .
So my RANDOM question is are you related to mufti menk. May Allah swt bless you both with the best in this world and Jannatul Firdaus in the next. Ameen.
Ps. I’ve listened to Mufit Menk since I can like remember, but I’ve never heard about you.. until you became my teacher Alhamdulilah. May Allah swt bless you and all teachers around the world who benefit others who beneficial knowledge for the sake of Allah swt. Ameen.
Keep up the excellent work Sheikh! Allah bless you.
