The Kedah state government is taking measures to make sure the prayer time is utilised for the purpose.

In a statement released by the State’s Housing, Local Government and Health Committee on its Facebook page, ALL night market hawkers in Kedah are ordered to temporarily stop business operations to respect prayer time at dusk, effective 1 May. The prayer at dusk, also known as Maghrib prayer generally takes place around 7:25 pm in Kedah.

As for the pause time, it won’t take too long, according to the authority.

“The period starts 5 minutes before the Maghrib prayer, and ends 10 minutes after the prayer time.”

Notices have been given to all night market vendors in the state and they have been asked to comply with the new instructions.

There is a reason why the notice was issued. According to the authorities, they explained that they are giving space and time to perform their prayers, as well as respecting the prayer time.

Previously, notifications were sent to night market vendors around the Kulim area in Kedah. The direction was issued by the Chairman of the Kulim Municipal Council through the community regarding the directive.

To our Muslim friends, do you think the same directive should be applied to the vendors here in the Klang Valley in honor of the prayer time?
