(No entry once the prayer space is full)
Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh
Please remember that the City of Calgary enforces rules on wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), meaning you are required to wear face covering in an indoor public places, except if you have an underlying medical condition or disability inhibiting your ability to wear a face covering. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, and there are so many numbers flying around, at IISC please follow the guidelines of no mask, no entry at the IISC.
Going forward, Friday prayer at the IISC will be on a first-come first-serve basis. We ask the brothers with a flexible schedule to attend the 2:30 and 3:30 prayer time slot to allow for brothers that can only pray during their lunch break at 12:30 and 1:30. The IISC will continue hosting four Friday prayers - IISC NE at 12:30 PM, 1:30 PM, 2:30 PM and Downtown Masjid at 12:25 PM.
We request you to continue working with our volunteers as they are trying their best to serve you ensuring your safety and the adherence to the rules. They are putting themselves at a higher risk by taking responsibility for keeping everyone safe.
NOTE: Based on the AHS recommendations, we are only allowed to accommodate males 14 - 65 years of age. We hope to accommodate our sisters in the next phase.
