Except for the 5 daily Salah, all Activities at ISD are Cancelled until March 27, 2020
Asslaamu Alaykum Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Yesterday, Governor Carney has asked that all 19 Delaware School Districts close from Monday, March 16, 2020 through Friday, March 27. Earlier (on Thursday, March 12th), he had also declared a State of Emergency for Delaware.
In light of these announcement and in order to help reduce the potential exposure of COVID-19 to community members and volunteers, the following actions are being taken with immediate effect:
With the exception of the 5 daily Salah, all other in-person events/activities at ISD/Masjid Ibrahim are hereby cancelled until March 27, 2020, including but not limited to the following:
Weekend Adult Arabic Classes at Masjid Ibrahim are cancelled for this weekend (March 14th and 15th) and next (March 21st and 22nd)
QAD, Saturday and Sunday Schools are also closed for both this weekend (March 14th and 15th) and next (March 21st and 22nd)
We are strongly recommending the following:
1) Anyone coming to Masjid Ibrahim for salah to bring your own prayer mat. Please also wash your prayer mat regularly.
2) Anyone above age 60 and those with compromised immune systems should stay at home and avoid coming to the Masjid.
Please also note that the Coronavirus Awareness Workshop to be hosted by Dr. Shahnawaz Khan will be livestreamed at the ISD Facebook Page so the entire community can benefit. This event will start at 11 AM on Sat (March 14th).
Please continue to check our website and Facebook page for other important updates from us as they become available.
May Allah SWT reward you all for all your efforts and protect you and your families during this time.
