Update on Jumah Prayers

Update on Jumah Prayers

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahu Wa Barakatuhu.

We are reaching out to update you about two important changes we are introducing in our Jumah (and other congregational prayer) policies and procedures.

Please kindly note that, as of this Friday, August 13th:

  • Children of 8 years of age and older will be welcome to attend Jumah and other congregational prayers at Masjid Al Noor. Parents will be responsible for supervising their children and making sure that they comply with all public health guidelines within MANAL premises.


  • Admission to our Jumah prayers will be on a "first come first served basis" and will NO LONGER require online or door registration. Accordingly, if you are healthy without any COVID symptoms and are not ordered to self isolate, please come to the mosque at least 15 minutes before the start time of the first or the second Jumah prayer. When the mosque capacity is full for the first session, the doors will be locked by MANAL volunteers and you will be required to wait outside to be admitted to the next one. We request you to please follow the instructions of our volunteers for a timely and smooth admission process. 


In order to minimize public health risks, we are not yet changing our other rules and policies, including mandatory mask wearing in MANAL premises. So, when coming to the mosque, please remember to:

  • have wudu at home
  • bring your own prayer mat
  • wear your face mask before entering the mosque
  • enter the mosque by the main door
  • put your shoes in a plastic bag and sanitize your hands before proceeding to the prayer halls
  • keep physical distancing at all times
  • pray only at designated spots
  • exit by the back door

We thank you for helping us to keep our mosque and community safe and look forward to sharing more updates in the near future.

JazakumAllahu Khairan,

MANAL Executive Commitee
