In the name of Allah the Most Merciful, the Merciful and Allah’s peace and blessing on the Prince of all past and future generations, the illiterate and trustworthy Prophet and on his pure family, his noble companions and all those who follow them to the last day.

Then, revered brothers and sisters in Islam, may Allah and blessingrest rest upon you.

It is no doubt known that Islam has set itself a special priority to preserve and protect every single human good. And the protection of human health in Islam is one of the five most important pillars to be preserved, just as it is regulated, among other things, by Islamic law, that all damage must be repelled, just as Allah the Sublime mentions in his noble book:

“and do not fall into ruin with your own hand.” Al Baqara: 195

And according to the statement of Allah to the omniscient:

“O those you believe, be on your guard.” An Nisa: 71

And the meaningful statement of the Messenger of Allah’s peace and blessing on him:

“No damage and no Harm”

In view of this turbulent time that the whole of humanity is experiencing these days, and especially in view of the drastic developments in Germany due to the Corona virus and the protection of the well-being of each individual and based on the precautions of Islamic organizations and institutions around the world, in Europe and the authorities in Germany, prayer in our mosque will be conducted until further notice, subject to certain conditions. These can be found on the flyer next door. We ask all visitors to the mosque to follow these instructions. Without observance of these rules, participation in prayer is not possible.

Thank you for your understanding and support
