In the name of Allah, the most Merciful. All praise is for Allah. May his peace and blessing be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family, the faithful companions, and those who follow them.
After detailed consideration of Observatory reports and moon sighting evidence from different locations, City Jami’ Manchester has decided that tomorrow 24th April will be 30th Shabaan and 1st Ramadhan 2020 will be on Saturday 25th April 2020 insha’Allah
As you know the masjid is closed, therefore please stay at home and perform your prayers, Taeweeh and Dua’s.
Please follow the lockdown and social distancing measures. This is very important to save ourselves and save others.
In collaboration with Manchester Muslims Burial Trust, City Jamia Masjid (Longsight) is one of only 3 masjids in Manchester which is performing funeral rites for Covid-19 deceased. Where possible, City Jamia Masjid will perform ghusl for the deceased. It is vitally important that we keep our staff and volunteers safe with appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
Please help us raise money to purchase face masks, protective overalls, eye protection, cleaning products and other much needed essentials. Any surplus equipment will be provided for free to other organisations insha’Allah.
This is a difficult and distressing time for all those that are losing their loved ones to Covid-19. Allow us to assist them by providing Islamic funeral rites which form an essential part of honouring the deceased in our faith.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, ” Whoever relieves a believer’s distress of the distressful aspects of this world, Allah will rescue him from a difficulty of the difficulties of the Hereafter. ” [Muslim]
