Leading Muslim figures have united in a video urging all Muslims to stay at home this Ramadan.

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has already infected 129,044 people in the UK and claimed 17, 337 lives.

Muslims have been urged to protect the NHS by adhering to the lockdown rules which have been extended to May 11.

All mosques will be closed during Ramadan, which will stop Muslims coming together for congregational prayers. They have also been told to avoid gathering with family members to do Iftar – the brealing of the fast.

In the video, London Mayor Sadiq Khan says he will be doing Iftar at home this year and requested all Muslims to do the same.

Khan’s message is shared by a whole host of Muslim personalities such as Hollywood star Riz Ahmed, musician Naughty Boy, comedian Tez Ilyas, presenter Konnie Huq, politicians Naz Shah and Baroness Warsi amongst others who have come together with doctors, nurses, police officers and firefighters to create the video.
