Important Update:

Due to a last-minute directive by the Provincial Authorities, we are not allowed to pray outdoors and therefore the prayers will now be held indoors. We are still trying to understand the rationale of this directive; however we will comply and require all worshippers to comply with all rules and restrictions.

Alhamdulillah we have the capacity to accommodate this change, so all plans and restrictions will remain the same.

– Only registered participants will be admitted
– Must wear masks at all times
– Must bring your own prayer rug
– Hand Sanitization station will be available
– keep a safe distance of at least 2 metres
– Cleaning will be done between the two prayers
– Doors will be kept open to minimize touching of surfaces
– All worshippers must leave the facilities immediately after the Fard prayer

Let us pray to Allah for patience and success.
