Temporary closure of all activities at Balham Mosque & Tooting Islamic Centre
18th March 2020
We, at Balham Mosque & Tooting Islamic Centre have been consistently reviewing our method of operation to ensure the safety, wellbeing and welfare of the entire community.
After extensive consultation and guidance from scholars, local healthcare professionals, local mosques and government guidance, we have concluded, as a precautionary matter that the Mosque will be suspended until further notice. With a very heavy heart, we are saddened to announce that all public access will be suspended; this includes all prayers (including the Jumu’ah Prayer) along with any events and classes. We will continue to broadcast the call to prayer (adhaan) inshaAllah.
No doubt, we are constantly reviewing this decision and will continue informing our congregation via the website, social media and WhatsApp Broadcast (add the following number: 07523 051 147 and request to be added). We will be holding a range of online advices and reminders via our YouTube and WhatsApp Broadcast.
We apologise for any inconvenience this closure may cause; however, we are acting in the best interest of our community, let us use this time to connect with Allah and amend our relationships with our near and dear. Let us supplicate to Allah and remain steadfast on our prayers; we will leave beneficial material at the entrance for people to take away and benefit from.
We pray that the Almighty grant protection, blessing and goodness to all.
