Update on COVID 19 & Mosques

STATEMENT ON RE-OPENING OF MOSQUES

In the light of the recent government announcement that places of worship will be allowed to re-open from 15th of June for ‘individual prayers’, The Muslim Youth Foundation will remain closed.

Mosques are first and foremost used for congregational prayers. Jama’at/ congregational prayers even with a small group of people, following social distancing and other preventive measures, will not be allowed in mosques from 15th of June.

We have assessed and consulted other mosques and have come to the decision that in the interest of protecting the safety of our congregation and the wider public community it will be challenging for us to open at this time under the current government advice.

We would like to thank our community for their support, patience and understanding during this difficult time. We will continue offering online educational and welfare services, as we have done for the duration of the lockdown and we are hopeful that the Mosques will re-open in the not so distant future, Insha’Allah.
