Assalaamu alaikum all:
Consistent with the Government's revised measures around COVID-19 restrictions – effective Saturday 30 May 2020 – we are delighted to continue using our Gungahlin Masjid for 5 daily prayers including Jumuah based on the following revised rules:
1. "No more than 20 people" at a time will be allowed to pray on the masjid premises, excluding the people conducting the prayers/services;
Recently the CMC Executive Committee (EC) decided to raise the General Membership fee to $100. Since then we have received feedback from numerous members, some in support of the changes and some against the changes.
The EC has carefully considered the feedback received and decided to revise its earlier decision and set the General Membership fee to $40. The 50% concession still applies to full time students and the unemployed.
With immediate effect, the Canberra Muslim Community (CMC) Inc. will implement new measures to combat the spread of COVID-19.
In accordance with the Fatwa released by the Australian Fatwa Council, the Imam of Gungahlin Masjid and CMC Executive Committee highly encourage Musallees to perform their five daily prayers at home and, to pray 4 rak’at at home as a replacement of Friday Jumuah prayer. Gungahlin Masjid will be closed until further notice.
