*Suspension of Activities at Worthing Masjid in Response to Covid-19.*
Due to the severity of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and its risk to public health, it is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that we have no option but to immediately suspend all activities at Worthing Masjid until further notice, starting after Isha prayers tonight. (22/03/2020) This decision is the result of an internal consultation and follows advice and guidance
from esteemed healthcare professionals, the Government, and other Masjids and Islamic organisations.
Worthing Masjid shall immediately suspend:
• congregational five daily prayers;
• congregational Jummuah prayers; and
• programmes, events and talks.
The Imams will give the adhaan, pray 5 times daily salaah and engage in aamals to protect the sanctity of the Masjid.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding. We urge you to take all necessary precautions to stop the
spread of the virus. We shall continuously review the decision and update you accordingly. We encourage you
to continue your daily prayers and routines from home, engage in dua, recitation of the Quran, istigfar and
We pray that Allah, the Most Merciful, showers us with His infinite mercy and grants relief, protection and ease
to all of humanity in these testing times.
We will continue to keep our community regularly updated by way of our home transmitter, website (www.worthingmasjid.co.uk) and Facebook page.
