As many of you may be following the news and have heard that the Governor of Texas has announced plans to reopen businesses in a phased approach including churches, congregations, and other places of worship.
Alhamdulillah, our Austin Imams and Islamic Center representatives have been on top of these developments, consulting authorities and healthcare professionals for advice on how to plan the re-opening of the masajid, especially considering we are in the holy month of Ramadan. At this time, we are all in agreement that it is unsafe to open up our masajid.
Please check out austinmuslimunity.org for online programming from local Imams and scholars. Insha Allah, we will keep you posted as we continue to monitor the situation and finalize plans to gradually open our masajid. Jazakum Allahu Khairun,
