Friday is a Muslim holiday. The Muslim community celebrates this day by holding Friday afternoon prayers at the Islamic Center. A large number of Muslims gather together for this blessed occasion and take part in the prayers. Learned persons, who generally help the visitors in their pursuit of knowledge about Islam, are engaged like all Muslims in their religious obligations, and therefore are not able to spend as much time with the visitors as would be desired. Therefore, it is recommended that visitors DO NOT select this day to visit the Islamic Center.
All visitors are advised to follow the guidelines and are encouraged to ask questions when something is not clear or not known.
Please turn off cell phones and pagers during prayers.
Please dress properly per the Islamic code.
Please keep shoes on the shoe rack.
Distributing or posting of fliers without prior approval is strictly prohibited.
No overnight sleeping without prior approval.
Please help keep the masjid clean and use its resources (water, paper towels, etc), as if they were your own. This is the house of Allah (SWT), so treat it better than your own home.
Please monitor small children closely. Keep them besides you before; during and after prayers i.e. do not allow them to run around. If a child begins to cry, it is ok to pick him or her up and continue the prayers.
Please talk softly while waiting for the prayer to begin.
Please keep silent during the Friday sermon, or it will void your worship.
Please wear T-shirts that are appropriate i.e. No skulls, faces or explicit phrases.
No smoking inside or outside the masjid.
Please make sure that your cars are parked in the appropriate/designated spots.
Please do not pray in the walkways, since this is a fire hazard.
The last person to leave the masjid should turn off lights and fans.
