CORONAVIRUS (CO-VID19) – PRESS RELEASE
Date: Thursday 19th March 2020
Based on the fatwa of the Committee of Senior Scholars and as well as the UK government guidance, Assunnah Islamic Centre (AIC) will be CLOSED from Friday 20th March 2020. Our last congregational prayer will be Isha tonight (Thursday 19th March 2020). This decision was not taken lightly and has been done to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus in the UK.
We have a duty of care towards our staff, volunteers, congregation and community. The preservation of life takes precedence over everything else and for this reason, we are cancelling all major activities at the Centre. This includes:
- Jummah prayers
- Daily salah (congregational prayers)
- Madrasah and educational classes
- Assunnah School (nursery to primary)
- Talks, conferences and other regular lectures
In replacement of Jummah, one prays Dhuhr as per usual (four units of prayer).
