Assalamu Alikum Wa Rahmatu Allah Wa Barakatu,
Dear Community Members
With the health and wellness of our congregation as our primary concern, the board of the Southwest Muslim Community Centre has taken the difficult decision to suspend all congregational prayers in both Masjid Annoor and Annoor Islamic Centre.
Our decision to suspend group or congregational prayers is based on our primary concern for the health and wellness of our congregation and to minimizing the possibility of community transmission of the COVID-19 virus. We ask Allah Subhanahu wa Taala to keep our communities safe and well during this difficult time for all. This is in addition to the suspension of Jumaa, weekend school and all group Halaqa’s at both facilities. We urge all members and users of our facilities to perform prayers at their home at this time again to minimize the possibility community transmission of this virus.
For those individuals who absolutely must use the Masajid, we ask you that you bring your prayer mats, or use the paper mats available at the entrances to both Masajid, to come with Wudu, not to stay in Masajid for any more than absolutely necessary, to always maintain the highest level of personal hygiene, and to maintain at least 2 meter distance (6 feet) between any 2 individuals.
Above all, a reminder to all of us to continue to seek Allah’s protection from this and other calamities for ourselves, our families, neighbors and humanity at large.
Jazakum Allahu Khairan
Southwest Muslim Community Centre Board
