Masjid Noor will continue to monitor the situation and appreciate your understanding at these difficult times. We pray that Allah protects us all during this pandemic and reunites us once again so that we can worship Allah in congregation, ameen.

اللهم فرج عن أمة سيدنا محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم
1. Muslims should turn to Allah Almighty, repent and seek forgiveness, give charity and supplicate. Tahajjud Salah is encouraged, and Islamic practices should be implemented within the home environment.
2. In accordance with the Government and Public Health England guidelines, all Muslims and Citizens of the UK should adopt social distancing. Other precautionary measures, such as implementing hygiene and reducing travel, should also be taken.
3. As the deadly virus has spread quickly and is easily passing from person to person, there is an urgent need to take further measures to stem the spread. Therefore, it would be justified to perform Salah in one’s own home.
5. Those performing Salah at home should set aside specific times for Salah and be punctual. It is sufficient to perform Zuhr Salah in lieu of Jumu’ah Salah.
6. Those with elderly parents or vulnerable members of the family should consider it an honour to take care of them.
7. If anyone receives messages regarding this disease, they should refrain from forwarding on without investigating their accuracy. Furthermore, one should abstain from making jokes about the virus or any illness.
