Important Coronavirus Announcement!
With Allah's Name, the Merciful Benefactor, the Merciful Redeemer,
As Salaamu Alaikum,
March 9, 2022, Suitland, Maryland,
After following all state, county and local protocols for masking, temperature checks and social distancing, as well as continually monitoring the health and welfare of our attendees and visitors, effective March 11, 2022, the Board of Trustees for the Ali Khan Islamic Center, in consultation with its Executive Director and the Office of Imams, has decided to err on the side of caution and keep all mask requirements in place.
Due to the nature of our salat – our prayer service – where we come together and remain in close contact with each other, it is our collective assessment that the shifting political climate, designed to take our minds off the remaining dangers and spread of this virus that may lead to death, is not enough to have us drop our guard; “The winds of emotion will not shake this house.”
Therefore, the Ali Khan Islamic Center will keep all mask requirements in place, remove social distancing protocols and temperature checks and require all attendees and visitors to monitor their own health for any signs of illness, before attending any of our programs or services.
May Allah continue to Bless us, have Mercy on us, Forgive us our sins, and Protect us, and our families, from the penalty of the Fire – Ameen.
May Allah help us get through this together.
As Salaamu Alaikum, Peace Be Upon You.
