Can Muslim men say a prayer in a surgical mask nowadays due to corona virus?
You are permitted to pray with the surgical mask on – if you need to wear them always, as mandated by your profession.
If, on the other hand, you are allowed to take them off while praying, then you should do so – if the mask covers the major part of your face.
In case of necessity, however, you are excused. And you can still pray while wearing it. According to the rules of jurisprudence, where there is a hardship, the rigor of the law is relaxed.
Almighty Allah Knows best.
