Saskatchewan Health Authority Announcement
Effective Province-wide on Friday, April 16th at 12:01am
Places of Worship
The total number of people participating in the services cannot exceed 30 people.
In line with Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) guidelines, currently Masjid is operating with capacity of 30 people at any given time.
Keeping following factors into consideration, Prairie Muslim Association (PMA) has decided that this year i.e. in 2021 we are offering only 8 rakats in Taraweeh with short surah so that both Isha and Taraweeh prayers can be finished under 40 minutes.
1- Space limitations. PMA’s prayer hall is small as compared to other Masajids.
2- As per SHA, it is the mandatory to wear a mask in any indoor environment except your home. Staying for 1-1/2 to 2 hours can be tiresome with mask on, removing mask below nose is dangerous and is not acceptable as it can pose health risk to other people in the prayer hall.
3- The longer you stay, the greater the risk of spreading Covid-19 as longer stay can increase the chances of spread.
4- PMA feels responsible and take seriously the health, safety, and wellbeing of the community.
5- Options are available for someone who wants to pray 20 rakats as service is offered by several other Masajids in the city.
ISHA AND TARAWEEH PRAYERS BY BOOKING SYSTEM ONLY
1- Please be advised that Isha and Taraweeh prayers will be through booking system only.
2- Booking link will be sent through WhatsApp every day at 7:30pm.
3- PMA will enforce “NO ENTRY” without booking.
4- If your intent to pray only Isha prayer, PMA humbly requests that you pray at home. Please allow other people to book who wants to pray both Isha and Taraweeh prayers in Masjid.
5- Fajr, Zuhr, Asr & Maghrib prayers will be on first come first serve basis.
6- Masjid door will be locked when capacity is reached to maximum.
7- Please follow all SOPs when coming to Masjid.
8- Wearing mask is mandatory. Maintain 6 feet distance from each other.
9- Do not come to the Masjid if you are feeling sick or having symptoms of fever, cough or shortness of breath.
Thanks for your cooperation and understanding, at this unprecedented time.
