NEW UPDATES FOR JUMMAH PRAYER

MASJID AR-RAHMAN
Capacity limit: 192 PEOPLE
Khutbah starts at 1:00PM

MASJID AL-NOOR
Capacity limit: 50 people
Khutbah starts at 1:15PM

Only ONE Jummah prayer will be held and it is only for MEN/BROTHERS. The door will be OPENED at 12:30PM, and it will be CLOSED when the CAPACITY LIMIT IS REACHED or when the IQAMA IS CALLED, whichever occurs first. If you come after the door closed, you can still join and perform the prayer outside of the building.

If you decide to attend, PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY AND READ CAREFULLY OUR REOPENING GUIDELINES through the link below. All community members are expected to abide by the requirements in the guidelines in order to enter the building. Our priority remains first and foremost safety for every member in our community. It is mandatory for everyone to comply with the guidelines, and it will be strictly enforced. Failure to comply will result in removal and potential closing of the masjid. We will be monitoring closely this update to ensure a full compliance with the rules, and reassess it after 4 weeks.

DISCLAIMER: The panel of infectious disease experts who have been advising us throughout this process continue to advise caution and recommend that we avoid praying congregational prayers at the masjid and keep the masjids closed. There is NO discussion about reopening the masjids at this moment. However, we have decided to reopen the masjids considering the following reasons:
1- Memphis City officials are still opening the City of Memphis.
2- Some community members pressure.
3- Other places of worship like churches, synagogues, and other masjids has been reopened.
As guidelines, the panel have provided us with guidance and recommendations on how to reduce the risk to our community if we decided to reopen. Our religious leadership has also advised that you are not obligated to attend congregational prayers at the masjid and still highly encourage our community to continue to pray at home. Please take this into account before deciding to attend.
There are too many issues at stake this election: Islamophobia, racial justice, healthcare, education, and more. Are you prepared to speak out on the issues that matter to you?
