18 March 2020 – 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 Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) most recent advice and other Mosques and centres, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend public access to Hendon Mosque, including for all prayers and Jumuah (Friday prayer), after the Esha prayer on Thursday 19 March 2020. We will continue to broadcast the adhan, insha’Allah.
We will keep the situation under constant review, and ensure our congregation is informed through our website, insha’Allah. We are also putting measures in place so that our community can get in touch with the Mosque, and we’re looking at ways the Mosque can give support to the vulnerable in our community. Our landline number is 020 8202 3236 and our email contact is email@example.com
May Allah help us all in this time of trial; we should turn to Him in increased devotion through prayer, dua and reading the Qur’an.
