السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ Friday 3rd July 2020
Insha Allah, MCWAS will re-open for 5 daily prayers from Saturday 4th July. Please take note of the following points so that we can keep safe and comply with government regulations.
Only people 16 - 60 years of age, with no underlying health conditions may attend. Everyone else to stay home at this stage please.
Hafiz Ibrahim Badat will be acting as Imam for 5 days a week and Brother Haroon will be acting as Imam for Wednesday and Friday. Please respect them and follow any instructions they give.
We are not doing Jumu’ah prayers. We will also not be doing Zuhr prayers in jam’at on Friday. On Friday, we will open for Fajr, Asr, Maghrib, Isha only.
Doors will open 10-15 minutes before iqaamah time and will be closed a few minutes before iqaamah time. This means to be allowed in you need to arrive 5-15 minutes before iqaamah time.
Entry is via the previous sisters entrance behind the black wooden door facing Ruskin Road; exit will be onto the side door on Woodstock Road.
We will be using the upstairs hall only for prayers.
Toilet and wudhu faculties will not be available, so come with wudhu.
There will be a maximum of 18 people allowed in for each prayer. When this number is reached the door will be locked. So you may be refused entry even if you arrive early, if 18 people were before you.
Keep 2m distancing outside and inside the building. No shaking hands/physical contact.
Plastic bags for your shoes will be provided.
Disposable paper prayer mats will be provided. Please do not bring your own prayer mat. Note upstairs is a hard floor, so this may be uncomfortable for people with joint problems.
After Fardh prayers, please make your way out of the building and do any further sunnah/nafl prayers at home.
People who attend Isha will be expected to take part in the daily cleaning rota.
If you or your household have any COVID sypmtoms, you must not come to the centre.
If you or your household are confirmed positive for COVID in coming weeks or months, and you have attended MCWAS, you must inform MCWAS management of this.
We look forward to easing these restrictions before too long, and gradually returning to normal activities Insha Allah.
Dr Nadeem Ali, on behalf of the MCWAS Trustees and management.
