Temporary Mosque closure to the public due to Corona Virus Pandemic 2020
Bismillah Alhamdulillah – in the name of Allah the beneficent the merciful, All praise is due to Allah.
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ May the peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah be with you.
With the current Corona Virus situation we are acting in line with the most recent advice from the Government, from medical professionals in our community, and after very careful consideration by our Imams in consultation with Islamic scholars and other Mosques and centres, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend public access to the Bow Muslim Community Centre , including for all prayers and Jumuah , beginning Thursday 19 March 2020.
We will keep the situation under review and make sure our congregation is informed through our website and community members, insha’Allah.
Allah says in the Quran:
(قُلْ لَنْ يُصِيبَنَا إِلَّا مَا كَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَنَا هُوَ مَوْلَانَا ۚ وَعَلَى اللَّهِ فَلْيَتَوَكَّلِ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ)
“Say, ‘Never will happen to us except what Allāh has decreed for us; He is our Protector.’ And upon Allah let the believers place their trust/reliance.” [9:51]
May Allah help us all in this time of trial; we should turn to Him in increased devotion through prayer, dua and reading the Qur’an.
