Statement from the EC | Coronavirus - March 2020

Dear Mu’mineen,
Salamun ‘alaykum

After much consultation and seeking advice from medical and healthcare professionals, the EC at Wessex Jamaat have decided to get ahead of the coronavirus outbreak and suspend ALL programmes at Al Mahdi Centre

  • Wiladat/shahadat programmes
  • Salatul Jum’ah
  • Saturday Madrasah
  • School visits
  • Private hire

The decision to close has been made proactively and with the best interests of our community in mind particularly the elderly and the most vulnerable. We would rather have abundance of caution prospectively rather than regret retrospectively.

The number of coronavirus cases in the UK is expected to rise soon and we urge all mu’mineen to take extra precaution as detailed in various COVID-19 broadcasts from Wessex Jamaat.

We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your continued support and patience during this trying time for everyone globally.

Please remember to exercise caution in your day to day activities from basic washing of hands to essential travel reconsideration.

With du’as
The Executive Committee | Wessex Jamaat
