Lucknow: Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband has asked Muslims to abide by the ‘Shariah’ and follow lockdown restrictions to contain spread of coronavirus.

The seminary also asked Muslims not to visit graveyards and mosques on the occasion of Shab-e-Barat.

In an open letter to the Muslim community, Mohtamin (vice chancellor) of Darul Uloom Maulana Abdul Kasim Nomani said, “The government has imposed a lockdown due to corona pandemic. It is the duty of every citizen to follow it. Shariah (Islamic law) also advises the same in pandemic”.

“In the present situation remaining home as a precaution is necessary in view of Shariah and law. All Muslims should follow lockdown and not be careless,” he said.

Darul Uloom is Asia’s largest seminary and is based in Deooband in Saharanpur district.

Nomani also asked Muslims not to visit mosques and graveyards on Shab-e-Barat.

Shab-e-Barat, also known as the night of forgiveness, will be observed on April 8-9. Members of the Muslim community visit graveyards and offer prayers in memory of their loved ones.
