Muslims should be equipped with jurisprudence in facing disasters - Raja Muda of Perlis

27/01/2022 07:23 PM

KANGAR, Jan 27 -- Muslims should be equipped with the knowledge of jurisprudence or ‘Fiqh’ pertaining to disasters, so that they are better prepared to fulfill their religious obligations during trying times such as the recent floods that hit the country, says the Raja Muda of Perlis Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail.

He said the Fiqh of disaster included the law of performing obligatory prayers during natural disasters, besides helping resolve other social and welfare issues during these times.

"The knowledge can also help civil servants involved with agencies that deal with disasters, such as the National Security Council, the Malaysian Civil Defence Force (MCDF) and the People’s Volunteer Corps, so that they are more aware of religious laws when managing disasters," he said when officiating the Disaster Jurisprudence Seminar for the Year 2022 organised by the Perlis State Mufti Department at the National Culture and Arts Department (JKKN) Auditorium here, today.

Also present at the ceremony were Perlis Mufti Datuk Dr Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin as well as delegates from the Perlis Islamic Religious and Malay Customs Council, Perlis Islamic Religious Affairs Department, Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), Royal Malaysia Police, MCDF, Malaysian Fire and Rescue Department and several other agencies.

He said it was also important for religious teachers to be well versed in the knowledge so that the information could be conveyed to all levels of the community at schools and mosques.
