    by "they", you mean the government/authority or masjid committee?

    If we don't, they won't let us attend masjid at all.

    ... and who makes these rules? Are these divinely ordained rules?

    Rules are rules. Like them or not. Not everyone likes a 70mph speed limit on an empty motorway but it applies nonetheless.

    With Covid still alive and kicking, our masjids have had to introduce new measures and procedures. The masjid is a public place, not your personal domain, so you will have to adhere to the rules the management sets.

    You may not like wearing a mask at all times whilst indoors, but you have to.

    You may not enjoy leaving the masjid one row at a time, in an orderly manner, but you have to.

    You may not like not being able to offer your sunnah prayers at home, but you have to.

    You may not like being told to stay in your place, but you have to.

    You may not like a one way system, but you must adhere.

    It is what it is. Do it.

    I'm not normally one to generalise or stereotype but mass disobedience of set rules does once again highlight perhaps an ingrained anarchy prevalent amongst us. It's as if we break rules to purposely annoy those in authority. We just don't like doing the right thing...
