Reopening for Daily Prayers and Jumu’ah

Reopening for Daily Prayers and Jumu’ah

Alhamdulillah, based on updated Contra Costa County guidelines, Masjid Al Rahman will be opening for daily prayers and Salaat-ul-Jumuah on Thursday, June 11, 2020, inshaAllah.

We have devised some guidelines for the health and safety of all attendees, as well as to ensure that we are in compliance with all state and county guidelines. It is extremely important that anyone attending abides by these guidelines.

Daily Prayers:

1. Only 100 people will be allowed inside the Masjid.

2. Additional congregants will pray in the parking lot.

Jumu’ah/Friday Prayers:

1. Jumu’ah prayer will be held in the parking lot.

2. We will hold 2 prayers: 1:30 pm and 2:15 pm.

3. Each prayer will be limited to 200 congregants—100 inside and 100 outside.

Important Guidelines for anyone attending the Masjid:

1. Each person must wear a mask and bring their own prayer rug. Anyone without a mask and prayer rug will not be allowed to enter.

2. Because of the current restrictions and facility limitations, women and children 13 and under are requested to pray at home.

3. Anyone attending must provide their name, contact information, and get their temperature checked. This will all be done by volunteers at the gate.

4. Prayers will be performed with social distancing guidelines.

5. Restrooms will remain closed. Please perform wudu at home.

6. The Masjid gate will be opened 10 minutes before each salaat and locked 10 minutes after the completion of each salaat.

7. Please do not shake hands/hug/come into physical contact with anyone.

8. Those who have underlying health conditions or are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 should NOT attend.

ISWCCC assumes no responsibility for those who choose to attend the Masjid. If you are not comfortable in light of the current pandemic, please continue to offer prayers at home.

All other Masjid programs are still on hold and we will keep the community updated with any changes.

May Allah SWT put khayr in this and make it a source of blessings for the entire community. May Allah SWT protect everyone from illness, disease and all harm.

Jazakumullahu khayran,

Masjid Al Rahman
