In-light of the call from the Jamiatul Ulema South Africa, the trustees and Imaams of the Houghton Masjid (West Street) regrets to inform our musallees that the Masjid will be closed to the public, effective immediately, until further notice.
Azaan will continue to be sounded as normal and the Salah will continued to be informed in the masjid by the Imaam and Muezzins only.
We implore our Musallees to implement social distancing and avoid unnecessary travel and visit to shopping centers, gyms etc.
Please have a punctual routine for Salaah within your homes and continue with abundance of Istikhfaar and Dua.
Programmes will continue via Online steaming and Radio Bilaal (Channel 9). Further details will follow.
May Allah Ta’aala make it easy for us and release us quickly from the clutches of this virus.
In the consideration of public welfare in light of the spread of COVID-19 and the need for all segments of the country to cooperate to combat this disease and halt its dissemination, we would like our local community to follow these guidelines : https://t.co/amIDS32muc pic.twitter.com/HEOuZMNez0
