As-salaamu ‘Alykum Warahmatullaahi WabarakaatuH

As we all know, from Monday July 19, 2021, the government has decided to remove the remaining Covid-19 lockdown procedures but urges everyone to still take all necessary health and safety measures in order to be Covid-safe. 

In the light of the above, from July 19, 2021, the Lincoln Central Mosque and Cultural Centre will be operating under the following measures: 

  • The daily congregational and Friday Jumu’ah prayers will commence as normal without gaps.
  • For individual Sunnah prayers, attendees are encouraged to space out or observe social distancing where possible. 
  • Brothers and Sisters, including children are allowed to attend prayers. 
  • The one-way entry and exit system will no longer be applicable. 
  • Even though wudhu facilities are available, attendees are encouraged to be already in state of wudhu (ablution) while coming for prayers.
  • Attendees are strongly advised to wear face masks in the Mosque! This is to protect themselves as well as others. 
  • Attendees are also strongly encouraged to bring their own praying mats.
  • The shoe racks will be available for use. However, attendees who prefer may keep their shoes in their own plastic or carrier bags as the bags will no longer be provided by the Mosque.
  • Please kindly use the hand sanitizers provided when entering and leaving the Mosque. 
  • Please do not mingle unnecessarily with anyone else, both inside and outside the Mosque and around the Car park.
  • Anyone feeling unwell should please not attend congregational prayers in the Mosque.

Press Release
 
As-salaamu ‘Alykum Warahmatullaahi WabarakaatuH.

In light of recent events, the management of Lincoln Central Mosque & Cultural Centre have released the following statement:

The Islamic Association of Lincoln has welcomed Hamas and Israel’s announcement of a ceasefire to end the 11-day  military offensive in the Gaza Strip.

I am writing on behalf of the Islamic Association of Lincoln, which is represented by Muslims originating from over 35 different nationalities, in addition, a fair number of our members here in Lincoln and surrounding areas are of Palestinian origin, and have expressed deep dismay at the war crimes being committed. The unprecedented attacks by Israel on worshippers at Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem came in the month of Ramadan, when Muslims were fasting, in the midst of evening worship and during the crisis of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This is on the back of continued Israeli expansionist policies and daily human rights violations of Palestinians. The attacks on Al-Aqsa mosque coincided with a time wherein more residents of Sheikh Jarrah face forced expulsion from their homes. The attacks on worshippers at Al-Aqsa Mosque are a gross human rights violation and are totally unacceptable.

We urge our UK Government to

  • Ensure Israel allow the Red Crescent ambulances and other humanitarian organisations to reach the injured and vulnerable people including children.
  • Stop the sale of all military equipment/hardware to Israelto prevent further casualties being inflicted on innocent Palestinian civilians.
  • Outline its commitment to the UN Security Council Resolution 2334, which demands that Israel stops settlement activity in Palestinian territories and fulfils its obligations as an occupying power under the Fourth Geneva Convention.

Yours Sincerely,

 

Dr Tanweer Ahmed

Chairman, Board of Trustees

The Islamic Association of Lincoln.

General Donation Request

We would also like to request our Community Members to donate generously to the Mosque in this Holy Month in which good deeds are immensely rewarded by Allah, subhannahu wata’ala.
