PLEASE READ THE ATTACHED FOR MASJID USE POLICY DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Following the Fiqh Council of North America, Selden Masjid will have the first Tarawih prayer tomorrow (Monday, April 12th) and the first day of Ramadan will be Tuesday, April 13th Insha’Allah.

Tarawih Prayer:
We have limited capacity (150) inside the Masjid, we will admit people on a first come, first served basis. Please note that we will only allow children 13+, same as Jumu’ah prayers. Please mask up, bring your own prayer rug and observe social distancing. We are required by law to enforce certain preventative measures including contact tracing. We are still living in a pandemic environment – please be careful and get vaccinated as soon as possible!

We tried our best to accommodate our sisters for Tarawih and Jumu’ah prayers, but unfortunately we did not get the needed commitment from female volunteers. We also explored the female security guard option, but our security company could not find any female guard for Tarawih hours. Hence, we cannot accommodate our sisters at this time. Tarawih prayers will be available via Facebook live Insha’Allah (www.facebook.com/seldenmasjid). As things get better or we have needed logistical support, we will accommodate our sisters for congregant prayers (Jumu’ah and Tarawih) Insha’Allah.

Parking:

  • Please DO NOT block driveways
  • Please do not park in adjacent shopping center parking lots, except in front of Selden House of Spices. DO NOT PARK IN FRONT OF LAUNDROMAT, COMIC/GAME AND PINK CLEANER STORES, on either side of the parking area
  • Any illegally parked car will be towed away at owners expense
  • Be a good neighbor and be considerate & mindful of others 

Daily Iftar:
Due to the pandemic, we are not able to serve Iftar in a similar fashion as it was done in the past. However, we are arranging for a limited number of take-home dinner boxes (cooked food) to give away daily. This is for deserving people, please do not avail this service if you can afford to do the Iftar at home or at a restaurant. Food distribution will be held between 6:30 PM and 7 PM daily and will be based on a first come, first served basis.
If you would like to sponsor Iftar then please send us an email to info@seldenmasjid.org, call 631.732.1235 or see one of the administration staff members at the Masjid.
