Mosque suspends Jummah prayers, madressas are CLOSED and worshippers told don’t shake hands


Manchester’s Central Mosque has become the first major mosque in the region to suspend Jummah prayers this week to help stop the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Whilst other mosques announced only restrictions.

The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) this week called for the suspension of all congregational activities at UK mosques and Islamic centres. 

This advice was not taken on board by some mosques whilst others have suspended prayers on advice of their own clerics.

All mosques were urging anyone (of any age) who has symptoms (constant cough or temperature) not come to masjid at all. They are also encouraging worshippers to pray at home and stopped the use of the wudu area.

Worshippers were also told not to shake hands after prayers.

Manchester Central Mosque, Victoria Park said in a statement, “MCM will not hold Friday Prayers / gatherings (Jummah Prayers) until further notice. As a result, brothers and sisters are advised to pray Zhur prayers at home instead. Masjid Madrassa will be closed with immediate effect until further notice.

“All other activities including lectures/weekends courses/darse Quran/mahafil zikr/khatme Quran/consumption of food will be suspended until further notice.

“Funeral prayers will be offered at the cemetery’

“All other prayers will be offered in the masjid as normal only in the designated areas.”

Jummah prayers are continuing elsewhere in the North West

Zakariya Mosque in Bolton announced they closed the madrassah on Tuesday.
