As-salaamu ‘Alykum Warahmatullaahi WabarakaatuH

As has been our tradition that Lincoln Central Mosque and Cultural Centre follows London Regents Park Mosque’s announcement of the start of Eid, we learnt that since the moon of Shawwaal was not sighted today, we will complete 30 days of fasting of Ramadhaan on Saturday 23rd May 2020.

We pray that Allah, subhannahu wata’aala, accept our fasting and prayers and reward us all abundantly.

Ramadhaan Mubaarak!

IMPORTANT COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT ON COVID-19

LINCOLN MOSQUE CLOSURE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

As-salaamu ‘Alykum Warahmatullaahi WabarakaatuH

Following the earlier announcement on Wednesday 18th March 2020 by the Board of Trustees, the Executive Committee and the management of Lincoln Central Mosque and Cultural Centre, regarding the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and steps taken to minimize the spread of the disease, it has become clear that the spread of the pandemic has reached a new level high within the last few days!

In line with the new directives of the UK Government taking effect from today, Friday 20th March 2020, the Islamic Association of Lincoln’s Board of Trustees, the Executive Committee and the Mosque management have, with heavy heart, decided to close the Lincoln Mosque and Islamic Cultural Centre for all activities until further notice.

Again, the trustees, the committee and the Mosque management will continue to monitor and assess the situation very closely, with a view to re-opening the Mosque as soon as possible bi-idhniLLahi ta’aala.

We are using this opportunity to thank the entire Muslim community of Lincoln and wider environment for their understanding and cooperation, as this drastic measure is intended, by the grace of almighty Allah, to save lives.

We pray to Allah, subhannahu wata’aala to remove this affliction from the land and protect the entire Ummah (Aameen).

IMPORTANT COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT ON COVID-19

As-salaamu ‘Alykum Warahmatullaahi WabarakaatuH

As we are all aware, following the World Health Organization’s assessment, the Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) has reached a Global Pandemic State! On a daily basis, more and more cases are being reported here in the UK as have been reported elsewhere world-wide. The UK government, the health authorities and various Islamic scholars have stressed in utmost terms, the need to save lives by putting measures in place to minimize the spread of the deadly disease.

In the light of the above, the Board of Trustees of the Islamic Association of Lincoln, the Executive Committee members, the Imam and the entire Mosque Management met on Wednesday 18th March 2020 to deliberate extensively on this matter and have decided to put the following measures in place until further notice:

  1. The closure of the Madrassa for Children shall remain in place.
  2. The earlier notice requesting women community members and children to offer their prayers at home and NOT in the Mosque shall remain in place.
  3. Friday Jumah prayers will no longer take place and the Mosque will be closed during the period.
  4. Elderly community members and people with underlying health conditions, which increase their vulnerability to infections are strongly requested at any time NOT to attend prayers in the Mosque.
  5. Anyone with Cold, Flu and related symptoms are strongly urged NOT to attend prayers in the Mosue.
  6. The Mosque shall be opened 5 minutes before the Jamaah time and only the obligatory (Fardh) prayer shall be performed. The Mosque shall be closed immediately thereafter. This measured approach will be reviewed on a daily basis just as the situation is being continuously monitored.
  7. Brothers attending the obligatory prayers are strongly recommended to already be in a state of wudhu (ablution) before coming as the wudhu facilities will not be available.

If the situation continues to worsen, the Mosque authorities may immediately close the Mosque until further notice. We pray to Allah, subhannahu wata’aala to remove this affliction from the land and protect the Ummah (Aamin).
