RE OPENING OF MASJID: Alhamdulillah, we are pleased to announce that Masjid Darus Salaam will be opening from Monday October 26th, 2020, from Dhur salaah Inshallah. At this time, all educational programs will continue online until further notice. As we begin to open the Masjid for prayers, we insist on the importance of following safety protocols put in place by the Government and Follow IST guidelines.

Please perform wudhu at home. Bring your own face mask and prayer mat.

Face Mask must be worn properly (including covering of the nose) at all time while in the Masjid premises. You may be asked to leave the premises if you are not wearing your mask properly.

Masjid will open only during daily salah time for Fajr and Zohr and will remain open from ASR till half an hour after Isha Salah

These measures are taken to protect our musallees, staff, and volunteers. We understand it may cause some inconvenience, but we are hopeful of your understanding and cooperation so we can keep the Masjid open without disruptions.

IST takes the safety of our congregants very seriously and considers the health and well-being of everyone to be our top priority.

ZERO TOLERANCE: WE DO NOT WISH TO REMOVE ANYONE FROM THE MASJID, NEVERTHELESS, THOSE VIOLATING THE RULES WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR CONGREGANTS.

Hadeeth: 

Beg Allah for safety in this world and the next: Abul Fadhl Al-Abbäs bin abdul Muttalib رضى الله عنه reports that i asked Rasúlullāh ﷺ to teach me a supplication.  Rasúlullāh ﷺ said,
“Beg Allah for safety (from all evils in this world and in the Hereafter)”. I waited for some days and then I went to him again and asked him:
“O Messenger of Allah, Teach me to supplicate something from Allah”.
He ﷺ said to me, “O Abbas, the uncle of Messenger of Allah! Beseech Allah to give you safety (Aafiyah) in this life and in the Hereafter”. (Tirmidhi)
