We have received a lot of inquiries regarding whether we are reopening the masjid in light of Texas allowing some businesses to reopen.
We have been monitoring the situation, and after reviewing CDC, State and County guidelines we have determined we CANNOT open the masjid for large gatherings such as Taraweeh or Jummah Prayers at this time.
This is not a decision we take lightly. The community’s health is paramount to us, and Flaah does not have the infrastructure nor processes in place to be able to effectively follow the requirements to open.
Here are some examples of the guidelines from the Governor and the CDC-
“At least once per day, clean and then disinfect surfaces and objects that are touched often.”
“Disinfect seats and any items that come into contact with attendees between services.”
“Screen employees and volunteers before coming in the church”
Flaah does not have the resources or infrastructure to meet these guidelines. Cleaning surfaces such as carpet is very difficult to do, especially on a daily basis. We also do not have the ability to test or screen people who come into the masjid.
InshAllah we will continue to monitor the situation and determine when the best time is to reopen.
We wish you all good health, May Allah (SWT) protect us all.

After taking into consideration the guidelines from local, state and federal agencies Flaah will be moving all events online and canceling Friday prayers until further notice. We will be offering events and Sunday school online, which we will detail in another post.
This is not an easy decision, however, we have a duty to prevent the spread of this virus. We heavily stress to the community to take this situation very seriously and follow the guidelines recommending social distancing and staying at home.
It is important during these times to look to Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala to guide us out of this pandemic and protect our community and loved ones. We have to remember that all illnesses, diseases, and conditions belong to Allah, and the cures belong to Allah as well. Continue to offer your prayers at home and make Dua for the health and safety of you, your community and your loved ones.
InshaAllah, if we look to Allah, as well as follow the guidelines, we will stay healthy.
Please take the necessary precautions and keep up to date with the active situation.
