YOU ARE NOT ALONE – WE WILL OVERCOME TOGETHER
COVID-19 Response Announcement for the Community
ٱلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ ٱللَّٰهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ
It is with a heavy heart that the Islamic Centre of Markham / Masjid Darul Iman has decided to suspend all essential and non-essential services including daily and Jumah prayers, and all sports activities at our Centre effective immediately. This will remain in effect till March 31st at which time we will further review the prevalent situation and inform the community appropriately. It is our civic and religious duty to take proactive measures for the safety & protection of everyone.
We have liaised with various levels of government and took into consideration Ontario’s declaration of a state of emergency as well recommendations from Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. David Williams’ strict appeal to the closure of all places of worship and faith settings. This is undoubtedly a trying time where we should all turn our focus towards remembrance and prayer of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىٰ.
Here are ways you can help protect yourself and others:
- Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds
- Monitor for symptoms, like fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose and difficulty in breathing
- Cough and sneeze into the bend of your arm, not in your hands
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with your hands
- Stay up to date with all the latest information by visiting www.canada.ca/coronavirus
Renowned scholar Mufti Taqi Usmani sahib has recommended the following for the protection of serious illnesses:
- 3 x full Surah Fatihah
- 3 x full Surah Ikhlas
- 313 x Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel
“Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us).”
–Surah Al ‘Imran (3:173)
We are grateful for the unyielding support and understanding from all members of the community. We humbly request you all to remember the state of the world in your prayer and make dua to Allah (SWT) to make this tribulation pass quickly. Aameen!
