In the light of the latest government guidance on social distancing to stop the spread of the deadly coronavirus 2019-nCoV (causing COVID-19), it is with extreme sadness that we inform you that City Jami’ Masjid, Manchester will be closed to the public after Fajr salah (5.30 AM) on 21/03/2020 until further notice.
There will be no access to the masjid at any given time and no classes or other activities will be held until further notice.
This is in line with scholarly and government advice and guidance, which has already been implemented in most major masajid across the country. See, for example, the full statement from Coordination Council of Mosques published on 18th March:
We request all brother to keep the masjid and the ummah in your du’as and do as much repentence as you can.
This is a big test. We pray that Allah (SWT) keeps the Ummah safe and protects all our Islamic institutions.
