HSEnations understands that the suspension of activities shall take effect immediately until further notice. This decision was informed by the menacing spread of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Fatwa by World Islamic bodies taking cognizance of the Islamic principles of ‘preservation of life’, ‘prevention of harm’, and ‘proactive response to impending danger’.

Muhammed Sola Hassan National Publicity Secretary said: “We acknowledge that many of our members and mosque users might find this unprecedented decision very uncomfortable, we should please be reassured that this is for the good of the community and it is in compliance with the Islamic response to the epidemic pandemic”.
