Abandoning Congregational Salāh due to fear of a contagious disease | Shaykh ‘Abdul Muhsin al-Badr

The Shaykh ‘Abdul Muhsin bin Hammad al-Badr -May Allāh preserve him- answers a question regarding leaving off the congregational salāh due to (fear of being afflicted by) Corona (virus)

He answered saying:
“Do not abandon the congregational salāh, while the people are praying and asking Allāh to dispel the calamity from them.
It’s possible that the salāh is from the reasons for repulsion of the calamity from them.”

قال الشيخ عبدالمحسن بن حمد البدر  حفظه الله ، يجيب عن سؤال ترك الصلاة في جماعة بسبب كرونا؟

فأجاب بقوله:
لا تسقط صلاة الجماعة،
والناس يصلون ويسألون الله أن يصرف عنهم البلاء،
ويمكن تكون الصلاة من أسباب دفع البلاء عنهم.
