The Shura has decided that in the best interest of the sisters and children and all others, that the sisters and children will not be able to participate in the Eid Salat. The logistics of having the social Distancing in the small enclosure of the masjid, creates safety and health concerns. Additionally, the Imam’s council of South Florida has recommended that it will be better for the sisters to pray at home. And in consulting a member of the health department on the health risks, it is also recommended the confined space is not conducive to everyone’s safety.
As such, in the abundance of caution, we have made this difficult decision. We know many will be disappointed, but this is the best decision for all concerned.
Thank you for understanding and may Allah reward everyone for their intentions and efforts during this very difficult time.
Please enjoy Eid with your families. Eid Mubarak.
