بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم
In the name of Allah, the most Compassionate, the ever Merciful
Masjid Management is NOT holding Friday Salah (jum’ah) at the masjid until further notice.
The threat of the virus is increasing each day and we must respond accordingly to safeguard ourselves and our community. Effective immediately these rules will he enforced:
- we will not be providing prayer rugs. Please bring your own
- leave 6 feet of space between each person. We know this is against Sunnah on ordinary days but these are exceptions. The rule in Islam states:
"الضرورات تبيح المحضوررات"
Meaning necessity overrides what is normally obligatory Allah SWT said in the Quran:
ومن اضطر غير باغٍ ولا عادٍ فلا اثم عليه
Which translates to Whoever is forced without being excessive shall not be committing a sin
- No person over 60 or child under 10 or any sick person
- We will heed to government warnings and close the masjid completely if the government mandates this or even if the threat of spread worsens
We pray to Allah for this ordeal to be lifted and our practice of our faith comes back stronger.
Help us, help others and serve the community.
