IT IS WITH GREAT SADNESS WE INFORM THAT FORD SQUARE MASJID WILL BE CLOSED FOR ALL SALAH INCLUDING JUMAHA DUE TO SPREADING OF COVID-19 CORONA VIRUS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

On 18th March 2020 (23 Rajab, 1441 AH) Tower Hamlets Council of Mosques held an emergency meeting to discuss the severity of the corona virus and the measures Masajids in the area should take to safeguard and protect the musallis. The meeting, attended by representatives of the 52 mosques in Tower Hamlets was addressed by Dr Umar Ebrahimsa (Infectious disease specialist NHS London) and Dr Usman Dar (Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health at the Royal College of Physician). Both doctors, who are involved with the Government’s ongoing response to the Corona virus threat alerted the attendees of the magnitude of the risk and devastation it can cause in our high risk community riddled with underlying health issues.On 18th March 2020 (23 Rajab, 1441 AH) Tower Hamlets Council of Mosques held an emergency meeting to discuss the severity of the corona virus and the measures Masajids in the area should take to safeguard and protect the musallis.

The Mosque Council is advising all mosques in Tower Hamlets to do their utmost to safeguard their congregation and communicate the following message.
Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, and peace and blessings on His final messenger, Muhammad ﷺ. We ask Allah to grant us patience, to strengthen our reliance on Him, and to increase us in our faith and good deeds. 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 all public access with immediate effect including Jum’ah Salah (Friday Prayers) from Friday 20th of March 2020.
In relation to the regular congregational salah the Council of Mosques makes the same recommendation with a skeletal presence but leaves each Mosque committee to decide how best to achieve this.
To minimise risks the most vulnerable groups should fulfill their salah at home and self isolate as far as possible. This includes Individuals who are1. aged 60 and above2. Have diabetes or high blood pressure3. Have Chronic heart or respiratory conditions (ie Asthma or other breathing issues)4. Currently suffering from or have recovered from cancer
Mosques should keep these decisions under review and reinstate full service once the threat has passed. May Allah (swt) protect us all and bless our collective efforts
