18 March 2020 – Dear Brothers and sisters
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh
In line with the most recent advice from the Government, from medical professionals in our community, and after very careful consideration by our Imams in consultation with Islamic scholars and other Mosques and centres, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend public access to the Finsbury Park Mosque, including for all prayers and Jumuah (Friday prayer), beginning Thursday 19 March 2020.
We will keep the situation under constant review, and ensure our congregation is informed through our website and social media, insha’Allah. We are also putting measures in place so that our community can get in touch with the Mosque, and we’re looking at ways the Mosque can give support to the vulnerable in our community. May Allah help us all in this time of trial; we should turn to Him in increased devotion through prayer, dua and reading the Qur’an.
May Allah SWT bestow His mercy upon us, protect us from calamity. Allahumma Ameen
