The management of Agung Nurul Iman Mosque , Annasir (28) in Padang on Wednesday admitted that because every day many people rested after performing the midday prayer.
"Usually after prayer in congregation they lie down to take a break before continuing their activities again," he said.
He added that the cool and calm atmosphere of the mosque was certainly a trigger for residents to choose to rest to just sit or lie down in the mosque during this fasting month.
Mosque administrators also do not forbid people who lie in mosques as long as they do not interfere with other congregational prayers or lie on the first, second, third and fourth shaf.
"If they sleep at that location, of course we will reprimand," he said.
A resident, Ayu (55) said she was more comfortable resting in the mosque than in other places.
Aside from being able to perform obligatory and sunnah prayers, he can also read Al Quran calmly because the atmosphere is very supportive.
A similar thing was also felt by Ali Munar (56) who works as massager around.
He said that after performing the midnight prayer he chose to rest to gather energy after continuing his work.
"When fasting this body cannot be forced so it must have a lot of rest," he continued. Editor: Mutiara Ramadhani
