Jummah Prayer Arrangements

Assalamu Alaykum.  On Friday, August 14th, there will be two Jummah prayers at Masjid AlSalam InshAllah.

First Jummah Salah:

  • Khutbah at 1:30 PM  (masjid gates will open at 1:00 PM)
  • Khateeb: Sh. Mamdouh Mahmoud

Second Jummah Salah:

  • Khutbah at 3:15 PM
  • Khateeb: Ustadh Rodwan Saleh

Both khutbah’s can be viewed on the Masjid’s livestream using the following link:

Please remember that even though the Jummah prayers will be held, the ISGH Shura and administrators strongly encourage our community to continue to pray at home. The overwhelming majority of shuyukh including the ISGH Fatwa Council have made it clear that if you don’t attend your masjid out of concern for your and your family’s safety or due to insufficient capacity during our phased approach, you will be absolved from the responsibility and through Allah’s infinite mercy, Insha-Allah, it will not count against you.

For those that choose to attend the Jummah prayers at the masjd, please be aware of the following guidelines:

The guidelines below are for everyone’s safety and MUST be followed if coming to the Masjid. COMPLIANCE IS NOT OPTIONAL.
