🕋As you may have all heard, the Government has partially lifted restrictions on places of worship to allow “individual prayers” from last week which has brought confusion amongst all faiths. The primary function of mosques is to facilitate collective worship for the Muslim community.
🕋Like other mosques in the UK, we are waiting for clear guidance for the re-opening of mosques so we can hold congregational prayers. Once this has been given, our Mosque and others can then consider how best to open for the five daily prayers, whilst ensuring the safety and well-being of worshippers.
🕋Covid-19 remains a threat to the lives of vulnerable people, especially those in BAME (Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic) communities, who have been disproportionally affected. The safety and well-being of our congregation is of paramount concern; as individual prayers can just as well be performed at home, our mosque, like many others, will not be opening for individual prayers anytime soon. We will keep the situation under review in the weeks ahead, and thank our community for their patience and understanding.
