Detailed message from Shaykh Ibrahim Zidan:
Assalamu Alikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh
The whole world is witnessing the calamity of the Corona virus, Allah is The All Mighty, nothing happens without the decree of Allah. He is The Most Wise and The Most Merciful. As Muslims we have at these times guidance from the Quran, Sunnah and the way of the rightly guided Salaf of our Ummah. Turning to Allah with repentance, Duaa, and establishing the Deen in our lives in every aspect of it. Also, following our Ulama and having good expectations of them.
Allah The Most High said:
“ وَإِذَا جَاءَهُمْ أَمْرٌ مِنَ الْأَمْنِ أَوِ الْخَوْفِ أَذَاعُوا بِهِ وَلَوْ رَدُّوهُ إِلَى الرَّسُولِ وَإِلَى أُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْهُمْ لَعَلِمَهُ الَّذِينَ يَسْتَنْبِطُونَهُ مِنْهُمْ وَلَوْلَا فَضْلُ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَتُهُ لَاتَّبَعْتُمُ الشَّيْطَانَ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا" (النساء 83)
“And when there comes to them information about [public] security or fear, they spread it around. But if they had referred it back to the Messenger or to those of authority among them, then the ones who [can] draw correct conclusions from it would have known about it. And if not for the favor of Allah upon you and His mercy, you would have followed Satan, except for a few.” (4:83)
It is also important to follow the local authorities and to abide by the decisions they make.
The Council of Senior Scholars on Friday prayer and prayers in congregation, and the spread of COVID-19
The Council of Senior Scholars in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia issued its statement no. 246 on 16/7/1441 AH, the text of which is as follows:
All praise is due to Allah the Lord of the worlds, and may blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad, and upon all of his family and companions.
To proceed:
The Council of Senior Scholars in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in their twenty-fourth extraordinary meeting, which was held in the city of Riyadh on Wednesday 16/7/1441 AH, examined the questions that were presented to them regarding the concession of not attending Friday (Jumu‘ah) prayer and congregational prayers in the event of an epidemic or fear of an epidemic. After studying the issue in the light of the Islamic texts and the objectives and guidelines of sharia, and in the light of statements of the people of knowledge regarding issues of this nature, the Council of Senior Scholars has issued the following statement:
It is prohibited for a person infected with this virus to attend Friday prayers and prayers in congregation, because the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said, “Sick (camels) should not be put with healthy (camels)." [Narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim], and because he (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said, "If you hear of the outbreak of a plague in a land, do not enter it; and if it breaks out in a land in which you are, do not leave it." [al-Bukhaari and Muslim].
If a specialized body determines that medical quarantine or isolation is to be imposed on someone, it is obligatory for him to comply with that, and to not attend Friday prayers or prayers in congregation. Therefore he should offer the prayers at home or in the place where he is quarantined. This is because of the report narrated by as-Shareed ibn Suwayd ath-Thaqafi, who said, "Among the delegation from Thaqeef there was a man with leprosy. The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) sent word to him, saying, 'We have accepted your oath of allegiance, so go back.'" [Narrated by Muslim}
If anyone fears that he may be harmed or may harm others, it is permissible for him to not attend the Friday prayer and prayers in congregation, because the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said, "There should be neither harm nor reciprocating harm." [Narrated by Ibn Majah].
In all these cases, if he does not attend Friday prayer, he must pray Dhuhr with four rak‘ahs.
The Council of Senior Scholars advises everyone to follow the instructions, guidelines and protocols issued by specialized bodies.
They also advise everyone to fear Allah, the Most Mighty and Exalted, and to turn to Him in supplication and humility, and to ask Him to grant relief from this tribulation.
Allah, may He be exalted, says:
“And if Allah should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except Him; and if He intends for you good, then there is no repeller of His bounty. He causes it to reach whom He wills of His servants. And He is the Forgiving, the Merciful." [Yoonus 10:107]
“And your Lord says, ‘Call upon Me; I will respond to you.’” [Ghaafir 40:60].
May Allah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his family and companions.

The Most important thing is to rely upon Allah, Duaa, repent, fill our time with worship and Istighfaar.
Since the authorities permits only a specific number of people, therefore many people won’t be able to perform Jumuah. In this case Jumuah prayer becomes NOT obligatory for them.
Jumuah should be established in the masjids as long as its permitted.
For those who won’t pray Jumuah, they should pray Dhuhr at homes in Jamah.
Its not valid and therefore not permissible to pray jumuah at home, etc but rather pray Dhuhr.
