Fatwa vs Irsyad - How are they different in Singapore?

What is an irsyad and who issues it in Singapore? How is this religious guidance different from a fatwa?

On 20 January 2021, a live online forum was held to engage the Muslim community in Singapore on the national COVID-19 vaccination programme.

Singapore's Deputy Mufti, Dr Mohammad Hannan Hassan, Fatwa Committee member Ustaz Fathurrahman Dawoed, and medical expert Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist, Dr Nurhidayati Mohamed Suphan were the panelists for the evening, offering a comprehensive discussion with both medical and religious perspectives to concerns that have been raised.
