Jumuah Prayer 3/20
Asssalamualaikum ICM Family,
Jumuah at the hotel location has been cancelled until further notice. It is strongly encouraged that you and your family pray at home. ICM will host Jumuah Prayers at the masjid 3/20/20 for limited numbers of people with registration.
It has been declared permissible by multiple Islamic organizations for Muslims to pray Dhuhr in their homes and work instead of praying Jumuah in the masjid due to current necessity.
Daily prayers will be held at ICM by a few caretakers of the masjid in sha’Allah. They will call athaan and lead the salah. There will be strict rules to be followed for anyone who prays in the masjid. We ask that you please abide by these for the sake of the entire community. A subsequent email will be sent with more details for those who want to volunteer as caretakers.
Note: ICM employees, including the Imam, will be working from home and will only come to the masjid occasionally to take care of administrative tasks.
This is the time for acknowledging our weakness and neediness before Allah and our reliance on Him; it is a time of repentance and beseeching Him for assistance; it is a time for having trust in Him and good thoughts of Him. Remember Him much and increase your good deeds during the day and night. Be in the service of His creatures, especially those of them who are weak and needy.
May the Blessings of Allah and Peace be on Muhammad, and all praise belongs to the Lord of the Worlds.
