Abstract

The Covid-19 shocked the world upon its existence at the end of 2019. The virus which primarily attacks the respiratory tract, which can lead to death, was first discovered in the city of Wuhan Hubei, province in China. The Covid-19 pandemic outbreak has drastically changed human lifestyle across the world. Most noticeable amongst them is in the economic and livelihood activities, where people are now discouraged or even prohibited to congregate, while social distancing and wearing protective protective masks, effectively reducing economic activities. Apart from the economic impact the virus has on human activity, the virus has also impacted religious rituals, as people must follow health protocols and adjust certain community-based rituals to home-based. This has been the starting point of change in the Muslim religious activities. In the fiqh literature, this form of leniency in worship is referred to as rukshah, which literally means relief or leniency. The following article is about how the community lifestyles and religious practices have had to adapt due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The findings of this study shall be a contribution in Islamic sociology, which seeks to take a snapshot of the conditions of society in adapting to life during the pandemic and an analysis of Islamic community life patterns after the Covid-19 pandemic.
