Jumah Salah 10th July 2020

Insha’Allah we will be holding our first Jumah congregational salah since 20th March 2020. In line with UK government guidelines for places of worship, we must keep a list of attendees to assist the ‘track and trace’ effort if required. This is why registration is mandatory. For everyone’s safety we are operating with 2 m social distancing which means that our capacity is currently limited to 50 per congregation. We will hold 4 jamaats for Jumah. Please register for 10th July using the links:

Please refer to the guidelines summary below:

City Jamia Masjid Re-Opening 4th July

Alhamdulillah City Jamia Masjid will be re-opening on 4th July 2020 for congregational (jamaat) prayers only.

In line with our risk assessment in relation to COVID-19, the following guidance must be followed to ensure the safety of all attendees. Please familiarise yourself with these arrangements prior to attending the masjid.

The Masjid will issue further guidance for Jumuah salaah, which will be published on our website (www.islamicacademy.eu)

Guidance Notes

The registration is important for us to manage numbers and also ensure we can help prevent a local outbreak. There will be an opportunity to register on arrival. If you register in advance, please have your barcode with you on your smartphone.

For Jumuah salah, we will release separate links closer to the time with the various Jamaat times (multiple, separate congregations are planned).

  • Upon arrival, you will be asked to use the hand sanitiser in the foyer.
  • We will then perform a temperature check. If you have a high temperature, you will be turned away for everyone’s safety.
  • You will be asked to scan yourself in using your Eventbrite ticket or to register upon arrival (if there is still capacity).
  • As shoe racks will not be accessible, you must take a bag that will be provided for your shoes or you can bring your own shoe bag with you.
  • Please be patient and adhere to the 2m marks on the carpet. Do not try and rush ahead.
  • The masjid will open 10 minutes before each salah and the doors will be closed one minute before jamaat beginning. Please read your sunnah and nafil salah at home.
  •  

Entering the Prayer Hall and Praying

  • Please follow the arrows filling the front row first.
  • There are 6 rows, each labelled A-F. Ensure that you listen to staff and volunteers and ensure that you do not go against the one way system and make sure you fill the space

Exiting the masjid

  • When there is a large capacity, the Imam will ask one row at a time to leave. Please listen carefully and follow instructions.
  • Exit is via the one-way system out to the Stockport Road entrance.
  • Be patient and adhere to social distancing of at least 2 metres at all times following the stickers on the carpet, when exiting.
  • Do not gather at the exit, or in the vicinity of the Masjid.

Sisters Area

  • Unfortunately, the sisters area is currently closed due to building work. Whilst we cannot provide facilities for congregational salah, we will aim provide space to pray for any sister who wishes to pray at the masjid insha’Allah.
  • Please bear with us. Once our building work is complete, we will have the large space for sisters in any mosque in the North West and beyond insha’Allah!

Position on Mosque Opening – City Jamia Masjid

We pray you are all well. Further to the recent announcement by the Government with regard to places of worship being allowed to open for individual prayer from 15th June 2020, we would like to inform you that City Jamia Masjid will remain closed until we are permitted to perform congregational prayers. There are numerous risks to opening early and the benefits of congregational prayer will not be possible with the guidance issued for 15th June. We are working hard to ensure that we are ready for opening in July with all of the measures in place for allowing congregational prayers with social distancing. Insha’Allah this will be by 4th July 2020.

You can see the latest guidance from the government below:

Covid-19 PPE Fund

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]

There will be no access to the masjid at any given time and no classes or other activities will be held until further notice.
