Dear Community
Assalamu Alaykum
Islamic Community Center of Minnesota/ Masjid Al-Iman take the Corona COVID-19 Virus concerns very seriously. We would like to continue to have our centers and masajid open to our congregants and guests for Daily/Jumma prayers, programs and activities. However, we need your cooperation to ensure everyone’s safety and good health.
We request you all to please follow the simple steps below for all our Programs & Activities, Classes, Daily Prayer, Jumaa Prayer, Taraweh Prayer, and Eid Prayer:
1) PLEASE STAY HOME, If you have flu like symptoms (Fever, Cough, Sneeze, Runny Nose, Headache, Join Aches/Pains etc..),
2) PLEASE STAY HOME, If you have recently traveled to and from affected areas,
3) PLEASE STAY HOME, If you have been in contact with anyone with Corona COVID-19 Virus
4) Do NOT shake hands, instead just Say Salam verbally.
5) Please bring your own clean prayer rugs to Masjid for additional protection
6) Please wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds before Wudu(Ablution) and use hand sanitizer often.
7) Please sneeze and cough into a tissue or cover your sneeze with your arm and wash your hands with soap and water (for 20 seconds) right after.
Please excuse us if we ask anyone seen excessively coughing, sneezing or exhibiting flu like symptoms to leave the masjid to protect fellow community members
As Muslims it is our duty to minimize harm and seek the greater good. As part of the process; preventing others from getting sick, especially the elderly, far exceeds the benefit of attending congregational and jumaa prayers.
Our programs and activities as well as prayers are in regular schedule. We will update you as soon as something changes or per authorities’ instructions.
For regular updates and additional resources please visit:
May Allah reward you and protect us all,

وَلْتَكُن مِّنكُمْ أُمَّةٌ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى الْخَيْرِ وَيَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ ﴿١٠٤﴾

Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: They are the ones to attain felicity.

Holy Qur’an, 3:104
