Sadly today was the first time in nearly 50 years that the congregational Friday prayer did not take place at Birmingham Central Mosque.
We ask our worshippers to make dua for all our mosques and for the health and wellbeing of the community and wider society.
We request you to continue to support the mosque through your duas and donations.
You can donate online as a single donation or set up a regular standing order.
You can donate by using the donate portal on our home page.
May Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala bless you and your family for this generous donation.
A meeting was held at Birmingham Central Mosque in Highgate on the evening of Wednesday18th March.
The meeting was attended by representatives of the city's major mosques and was addressed by Dr. Justin Varney, Director of Public Health at Birmingham City Council.
Dr. Varney briefed the leaders of the Muslim community on the latest updates on the Coronavirus pandemic.
Following the update, the meeting unanimously agreed on a resolution to temporarily suspend Friday prayers, all congregational prayers and mosque evening schools.
These will be suspended until further notice taking into account further updates from the Government and health bodies.
Birmingham Central Mosque has taken this decision with a heavy heart as the suspension of prayers goes against everything we stand for.
We took into account the serious concerns about the health and safety of the Muslim Community and the wider society.
Many Muslims are at higher risk due to the increased prevalence of health problems such as Diabetes and High Blood Pressure. Covid-19 Coronavirus is expected to cause a large number of deaths if actions to limit is spread are not taken.
We will be reviewing the situation regularly and communicating with the other mosques of Birmingham, health bodies and government.
We pray for Allah's Help in this severe trial.
