The Ministry of Endowments did not prohibit reciting the holy Quran at mosques during the fasting month of Ramadan, said Minister Mohamed Mokhtar Gomaa on Monday.

Playing recorded Quran recitation at mosques falls within the responsibility of the mosque imam and should come in line with all precautionary measures adopted by the state to preserve the health and safety of citizens, Gomaa said in a statement issued by the ministry on Monday.

He added that several measures have been taken to counter the anti-government sentiment shared by plotters who allege that the state bans reciting Quran at mosques, in a bid to sow sedition.

The ministry is fully aware of its genuine role of boosting mosque activities, serving the holy Quran along with promoting the moderate teachings of Islam, the minister said.

Gomaa added that the ministry doesn't oppose airing the holy Quran before Maghrib (evening prayer) and Fajr (dawn prayer) at mosques.
