First, Muslim health workers who are tasked with caring for Covid-19 patients using PPE, are still obliged to establish fard prayer in various conditions.

Second, in conditions when working hours are finished or before starting work he still finds prayer time. “Then it is obligatory to perform Fardu prayer as it should,” said KH Asrorun.

Third, the conditions of duty begin before entering the time of Dzuhur or Maghrib and ending still in the time of Asr or Isha prayers. “Then you may pray with the last name,” he explained.

Fourth, the conditions of duty begin at the time of Dzhuhur or Maghrib and are estimated to be unable to perform Asr or Isha prayers. Then you can pray with the jama ‘taqdim.

Sixth, in conditions when working hours are in the prayer time span and the medical staff still has ablution then he may perform prayers within the specified time.

“Even though they still use the existing PPE,” he said. He continued, the seventh legal provision, in the difficult conditions of performing ablution, then he could pray then perform prayers.

Eighth, in a state of purity and impossibility of purification, ablution and tayamum may perform prayers in an unholy state and need not be repeated (i’adah).

Ninth, the PPE used is unclean and does not allow it to be removed or purified.

“So performing the prayer can be in an unholy state and repeating the prayer (i’adah) after work,” he explained.
