Assalamu ‘Alaikum Brothers and Sisters,
The committee members of the Islamic Center of Naples along with our respected Imam Muhammad Nour have made the difficult decision to cancel all activities at the Masjid until further notice. As such, the Masjid will NOT be open for regular daily prayers and there will be NO Friday Prayer services at least for the next 2 weeks, beginning effectively today, Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
No Friday Prayers for Friday, March 20 and March 27, 2020.
We have also followed the advice of Islamic scholars and religious authorities, who emphasize the importance of protecting life and preventing harm, and the decisions of many other Masjids and Islamic centers throughout the United States.
We will keep you informed and updated as conditions change and when we will be open for regular prayers and Friday congregational services.
For further information about the virus please visit the Center for Disease Control (CDC) website at https://www.cdc.gov/
Additionally, please let us know of any elders or needy people in our community that may need help with shopping, running errands, picking up prescription medication, etc.
We apologize for any inconvenience and hope that The Almighty will eradicate this pandemic soon and get us back in action together as a community in no time, Insha Allah! In the interim, let’s use this personal time to reflect and turn to our Allah in repentance and mend all of our relationships, with Him and with all of His creation. This quarantine may be a blessing in disguise. Stay hopeful, positive and safe! See you all very soon Insha Allah!
Jazakum Allahu Khair
