Asalaamu Alaykum Brothers and Sisters,
Insha Allah, the ICCA will reopen for Jumah prayer this Friday, Jan. 22nd due to an apparent decrease in local COVID-19 hospitalizations. However, the masjid is implementing new safety measures to better protect everyone who attends Jum’ah, insha Allah.
Please read all of the new safety measures before attending Jum’ah this Friday:
1. We will now host three different Jumah services at 2:00 pm, 2:30 pm, and 3:00 pm, insha Allah. Each Jumah is scheduled to last for a maximum of 15 minutes, including the salat.
2. A maximum of 50 people will be allowed to attend each Jum’ah in the main prayer area. If our volunteers determine that the maximum number has been reached, you must wait outside for the next Jumah to begin.
3. Do not put your shoes on the rack. Instead, place your shoes inside a plastic bag and keep your shoes with you during Jumah. This will iA reduce the risk of crowding near the shoe racks at the end of Jumah. If you forget to bring a bag with you, the masjid will provide one for you, insha Allah.
4. If you have traveled anywhere on an airplane over the past 10 days, please either take a COVID-19 test OR wait at least one week before coming to the masjid for Jumah.
All of the other safety measures (including wearing a mask that covers both your nose and mouth, social distancing, and temperate checks) remain the same.
Please follow all of the safety measures, and please cooperate with our volunteers, so that we can always keep the masjid open for Jumah.
May Allah SWT protect all of us as we reunite at His masajid. JazakumAllah khair.
