We have been working hard to put together arrangements for the blessed month of Ramadan despite the difficult situation we are facing with the Covid-19 pandemic. We are blessed this year to open and offer some restricted services, however the opening of the mosque and all congregational prayers and community activities held during the month of Ramadan and on Eid will be subject to current Government COVID-19 Guidance.

Our priority is to safeguard the wellbeing of our community.

Tarawih Prayers

We are grateful to be able to offer the tarawih prayers at the Centre. However, with the current covid restrictions such as the requirements to wear facemasks at all times, limited capacity and the closure of washrooms, we will be offering a shorter limited Tarawih prayer consisting of eight rak’at as a congregation followed by Witr. 

This is temporary for this year based on Health & Safety advice against keeping people indoors for a longer period. 

Should you wish to pray twenty rak’at, please complete the remaining prayers at home. The completion of the Qur’an in the tarawih prayers is recommended but is not essential.

Brothers can pray Isha and Tarawih prayers on the ground floor and some rooms on the first floor. Sisters can pray on the first-floor mezzanine and in the rooms to the rear on the first floor.

PLEASE NOTE:

The Centre will be open 15 mins before Maghrib prayer. And will close 15 minutes after the prayer. This is to enable cleaning of the premises ready for Tarawih.

Remember to allow sufficient time to arrive and park considerately without blocking driveways. Please arrive and leave quietly to not disturb our neighbours especially when late.

Children

As always, everyone is welcome. However this year we ask that our younger visitors under 12 years old stay at home for Tarawih. It will be late, and maintaining social distancing is difficult for them. Unaccompanied children will be removed to sit in the foyer. The adult responsible for them will be told the keep children at home. 

What You Should Bring

Please remember you will be expected to adhere to social distancing rules and the following still apply:

  1. Bring your own Prayer Mat
  2. Wear a face mask at all times
  3. Bring your own shoe bag
  4. Do Wudu before you come

Entry

Due to the above restrictions for this year, there will be a limit to the number of people allowed in the mosque at any one time.  Therefore, we will be operating a strict ‘first come, first serve’ policy.  Once full capacity is reached, the centre will not allow entry to any more people.  We ask that you help us manage this successfully and cooperate with the volunteers and stewards at the doors.

REMEMBER: SPACE WILL BE LIMITED AND ONCE THE FACILITIES ARE FULL, YOU WILL BE REFUSED ENTRY

Iftar and Itikaaf 

Iftar Arrangements

Minimising the risk of viral transmission is our priority. As a result, there will be no Iftar arrangements in Masjid. Musallees coming for Maghrib prayer should bring their own Iftar from home to be eaten outside the Masjid. Only bottled water will be allowed inside the prayer hall.

Itikaaf

We are usually honoured to have guests at the mosque for the last ten nights who engage in constant worship. As the space is limited in the Centre for people to stay overnight and maintaining social distance is difficult, we will NOT be hosting anybody for itikaaf this year.

  • No food or drink in the prayer halls
  • No reserving of places in the prayer halls for friends or relatives. First come, first served.

Our Projects

Alhumdulillah, in previous years we raised funds for international projects which have been completed. Details can be seen on our Charity Projects page.

Due to the COVID-19 Lockdown, last Ramadan we were unable to raise the normal  funds needed to keep the centre running successfully.  So, please donate now so you too can get the reward of establishing a house of Allah , and help us continue to run the centre to the standards expected.
