Management Committee of Colchester Mosque
In accordance with the UK government announcement on Monday 23 March 2020 the Mosque has been closed until further notice. We must follow the UK government orders to ensure the safety of our worshippers, families and the community as a whole. We pray that Allah cures the world of this disease so that our lives can get back to normal and we may all come and pray in the Mosque once again.
We have daily Adhaan on our Facebook page.
We know this is a difficult period for all and we are all getting used to not being able to worship in the Mosque. This may be the first time many of us will not attend Jummah and the Mosque but this is for the best for all people, Muslims and Non-Muslims alike. If we adhere to the expert advice and recommendations inshallah we will be able to visit the Mosque sooner rather than later.
We should also be aware that such precautions were also advised in Islam and by the Prophet Mohammed (ﷺ).
Please see below relevant hadiths for us to consider during this time:
