Community Announcements During COVID-19

August 19, 2020

Dear respected congregants,

The masjid administration kindly requests you keep in mind the following when visiting the masjid for prayer during the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • The masjid is open 10 minutes before each prayer and during prayer time.
  • The masjid will be closed at all other times in-between the prayers.
  • You may pray under the roofed parking, in-between prayers if you should need to do so, respecting social distancing measures.
  • When coming to the masjid please make sure that you exhibit no symptoms of COVID-19, wear a face-mask and bring your own prayer mat. (*see checklist below)

The masjid is open for all five prayers daily, and we currently offer two (2) Jumu’ah (Friday prayers) to accomodate the social distancing measures.

The Jumu’ah prayers are at 1:30 PM and 2:00 PM.

  • Update Monday March 23, 2020: Lecture by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi, including dua for protection.

Assalamu Aleykum wa Rahmatu Allah,

Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri and Abu Huraira:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “No fatigue, nor disease, nor sorrow, nor sadness, nor hurt, nor distress befalls a Muslim, even if it were the prick he receives from a thorn, but that Allah expiates some of his sins for that.

The Bosnian Islamic Centre is faced with making an extremely critical decision in these dire times.  The safety of our community is of utmost importance and we are making decisions guided by the best advice of our Islamic scholars as well as the medical experts in the field of infectious diseases.

Based on the most recent information available to us we are making the difficult decision to suspend all congregational prayers for the public at our masjid, commencing this afternoon, until further notice.

We encourage all community members to follow the guidelines of public health officials and the scholarly opinions to remain at home in order to limit the spread of the highly contagious Covid-19 virus.

May Allah SWT protect our community and all of humanity from any harm and bless us with health and strength in our emaan.
