Free shuttle service for imams

Filed on November 9, 2019 | Last updated on November 9, 2019 at 09.44 pm

There is an urgent need for transportation service for the imams in Umm Al Quwain. Many travel a great distance by foot to reach the mosque to lead prayer. However, many a time they are unable to reach on time as well which leads to confusion as to who should lead the prayer. Daily commute by taxi is an expensive proposition. I feel there should be a shuttle service exclusively for imams.

Even after prayers, most imams depend upon the generosity of people to give them a ride back home. I am aware that most imams have accommodations next to the mosques. But there are a few who do not.
