By the Grace of God Almighty, on Wednesday 18th March 2020 the Council for Mosques (CFM) the membership agreed to suspend daily congregational and Jumu’ah prayers, as per the advice from medical practitioners and our esteemed scholars.

While this was a momentous decision, it is a necessary one. We must safeguard the local community from the deadly and unprecedented COVID-19 virus.

We are also encouraged by the widespread support the decision is receiving across different Muslim constituencies.
