Hujjat Statement 18.11.20 – Centre repairs

In: Home Page, Hujjat, Latest News, News

Dear Members

Salam Alaykum

As you may all be aware, due to the recent rains and the consequent flooding, our Hujjat centre has been significantly damaged.

Alhamdullilah, we have secured funds from our insurance company to undertake immediate repair works.

To allow the contractors to carry out the various repairs, we must close the centre for a period of time. During this time, no activity will be permitted in the main building. However, the burial service will continue as normal.

We will InshaAllah keep you updated during the different phases of work and we pray for a successful completion. Measures to safely re-open the centre, subject to government COVID-19 guidelines, are currently being discussed by the EC.

We will continue to broadcast a diverse array of programmes on our Hujjat YouTube channels. Programme details can be found on the Hujjat Website.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and look forward to welcoming everyone back to centre as soon as possible.

With Salaams and Duas

Hujjat Covid Statement 5.11.20 – National Lockdown

In: Home Page, Hujjat, Latest News, News

Salaam alaykum,

Our felicitations to Imam Mahdi (atf) and the muslim Ummah on the Wiladat of our Beloved Prophet (saw) and Imam Jaffer As Sadiq (as).

As you may already be aware, the government has officially declared a national lockdown to curb the increasing number of Covid-19 cases, hospital admissions and deaths.  

Be Safe, Keep others safe

As a largely African Asian based community, we are in one of highest risk groups in the country to be severely affected by Covid-19, a silent virus that can spread between people without their knowledge. In particular, over 60’s or those with underlying medical conditions are at higher risk. As such, we would like to remind everyone to ensure we reduce the risk of being infected or infect others with our interactions and activities.

Please Wear a mask at all times and Avoid the “Three Cs”

  1. Closed Spaces with poor ventilation
  2. Crowded places with many people nearby
  3. Close-contact settings such as close-range conversations or recitations.

If you develop symptoms of the virus (a new continuous cough, fever or loss of taste or sense of smell), please immediately self-isolate and book a free test online or call 119 – people who fail to self-isolate may face a fine of up to £10,000.

Please join us in praying for the Shifa for all those who have tested positive for Covid in our community and recite Surah Al-Fateha for all Marhumeen who have lost their lives due to Covid.
