I will not stop repeating this: STAY AT HOME AS MUCH AS YOU CAN!
Going to the masjid for communal prayers goes against the goals of the Shariah at this time.
Note: Even the janazahs themselves can't be attended communally 😢!
I ask Allah to forgive him, and all of us. https://t.co/ESbQ0ObyJN

Time for mosques to get creative & maybe reach even more people than usual: use FB live to give morning pep talks & nightly duas to close the day, zoom for hifz programs, open volunteer lines for tutoring, to take & make calls to those lonely & isolated – create community!

Don’t take the #coronavirus outbreak lightly. Preventing its spread is an obligation. Take all necessary steps & precaution towards this end. Remember, it’s now a #pandemic, global crisis. So we all have to play our part. Don’t harm others & don’t be a source of harm! Stay safe

The Prophet (PBUH) said people should not travel to places known to be afflicted with illness and advised those in contaminated areas not to leave & spread the disease further afield.

It is highly likely if things persist that we might not have tarawīh prayers this Ramadan (not to mention iftars). I cannot even imagine Ramadan w/o tarawih😢
We will be tested in ways we didn’t even imagine. And Allah will help us overcome & pass each test, to come out stronger.

During these stressful times, all believers should memorize and find comfort in this verse:
قل لن يصيبنا إلا ما كتب الله لنا هو مولانا
“Say: Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us! And He is our protector; let the believers put their trust in Him!”
