عنوان مقاله [English]
Religious rites and practices are the practical embodiment of the ideologies and intellectual foundations of a worldview that express the general goals and objectives of that school. Most of the worships and rituals of Islam have a collective aspect, so that the emphasis on performing group worships in some cases is considered a condition for the correctness of deeds. On the other hand, the continuation of human life and collective life requires the observance of the general principles of health and public health, which has been confirmed and emphasized by the principles of the religion of Islam. However, in the event of the spread of epidemics and the conflict between the two principles of health requirements and the need to attend mass worship, at first glance it seems a little difficult to combine the two principles. This descriptive-analytical article seeks to explain the purposes of Shari'a in maintaining the necessities of Khamseh and the priority of preserving life over other purposes, to express the permission and necessity of prioritizing health requirements over participation in collective rituals from a religious point of view and to explain the existing conflict.
