COVID-19 Activities Cancelled

Jummah and Weekend Fajr along with ALL Activities at Quba have been CANCELLED until further notice

Assalamu Alaikum Dear Community Members,

Quba Center Board had issued a statement last night to our community indicating that a limited Friday prayer would be held today, March 13, with all other activities canceled.  Quba Center takes the well-being and safety of our community seriously.  In light of new developments since this statement was issued, the Board met this morning and decided the following:

  • Friday prayer for today March 13 will be CANCELLED
  • Friday prayer will be SUSPENDED until further notice
  • All other activities normally held at Quba Center will be SUSPENDED until further notice

New developments since last night’s decision included a joint statement issued by Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA), Islamic Medical Association of North America (IMANA), and Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), advising masajid and Islamic Centers to suspend Friday prayers.  You can access the joint statement below:

We remind our community members that Dhuhr prayer is still an obligation when Friday prayer is not done in congregation.

Quba Center will continue to monitor the situation closely and will keep our community members appraised of any new developments.

May Allah (swt) continue to protect us all.
