Friday prayer bookings resumed on 12 November 2021. The COVID-19 restrictions had limited prayer slots to once every three weeks in the hopes to limit the number of congregants who could pray together at one time. Thanks to the recent easing of safety measures, Muslims can once again attend Friday prayers every week.
However, they will need to secure a slot. The Worshipers in Singapore can access the official website to enable Friday Prayer Booking Singapore. VDS is required for all congregational worship services, including all Jemaah prayers. Worshippers can book up to two weeks ahead.
