There will be limited capacity for local brothers, sisters and children, please make your wudhu at home and bring a face mask, a shoe bag and prayer mat. Please form an orderly socially distances que outside the Masjid and wait for the previous prayer to finish. Zakatul Fitr is £5 per person and should be paid before the Eid Salah. This is a time of beneficence,so please support as many good causes as you can, find out more about the WLIC Redevelopment Project and its progress here.

SAFETY FIRST: There will be limited and shortened Taraweeh arrangements for brothers and sisters on a first come first served basis, unfortunately there will be no late night Qiyam/Tahajud prayers in the last 10 nights this year. The entire ground floor is for sisters only, with the entance on Brownlow Road. Please do not bring children under the age of 12 for Taraweeh and if you are sick please pray at home. There will be no toilet or wudu facilities except in an emergency. The Masjid will open 30 minutes before Isha prayer and when the Masjid is full the gates will sadly be closed. Please bring your own face mask, shoe-bag and prayer mat, when in the building follow the one way systems, please be patient and cooperate with steward volunteers.

This year there will be no seated Iftar or food consumption in the Masjid, Insha’Allah when available, there will be take-away food packs after Maghrib, you can donate towards the Iftar fund in the office.

Please comply with social distancing when queuing  outside the Masjid, please be considerate of our neighbours and do not congregate in large groups outside. We pray that Allah (swt) protects us, cures us and accepts our Siyam, Qiyam, Qur’an and Sadaqah in this exalted period.

The Prophet (pbuh) said, 'Allah the Almighty has said: "Whosoever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, I shall be at war with him. My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have imposed upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it.' [Related in Bukhari]
