السلام عليكم ورحمة الله و بركاته
Dear worshippers and attendees, I hope you are all well and safe. Alhumdolliah the great month of Ramadhan is fast approaching, and we ask Allah Almighty to bless us and grant us success during this month. We are well aware things are not the same due to the COVID19 pandemic. It has been a testing time for all. Government regulations have meant we have had to operate in a different manner. Part of that is still continuing as we want the Masjid to be a safe place and not a place for the COVID19 virus to spread. We have outlined some important rules which we expect EVERYONE to follow. This will insure the masjid stays open and we can worship Allah in the best of places. Insha’Allah.
