Mosque Safety Guidelines

The Idris Mosque will operate according to the opening phases of Washington State guidelines and will follow the State of Washington and CDC guidelines to open.

We have implemented many changes for the safety of all our congregants:

  • Idris mosque is now open for 50 people and offers 2 Friday khutbahs – one at 1:30 and one at 2:30. Registration is required through the weekly updated link on Eventbrite and can be found on Idris Mosque web site, Idris Mosque Facebook page and if you sign up for the What’s App Idris Mosque group. If you would like to attend Friday prayer, you must present a virtual “ticket” upon entry and follow the guidelines below to attend.

  • The washrooms will be closed so please make wudu before you enter the mosque.

  • Please use the hand sanitizer at the door before entering and leaving the mosque or wear gloves.

  • Everyone will be required to take their temperature upon entering the mosque and if it is over 100.4, will have to leave the mosque and seek medical attention.

  • Congregants will have to bring and wear a mask from home.

  • Please bring your own prayer mat.  We have marked the carpet for social distancing to place your prayer mat and will be utilizing the hall for overflow which has also been marked out for social distancing.

  • Please eliminate social greetings and gatherings and consider not shaking hands, kissing on the cheek, or hugging others.

  • We also ask people not to bring children under 12 years old because they will not be able to maintain social distance of 6 feet.

  • The library will not be available at this time until further notice.

  • The Islamic Weekend School program will remain closed until further notice.

  • The men’s main entrance is the only door that will be used during this time.

  • The mosque will be closed and locked immediately after prayer.

  • We are following State guidelines for opening and the number of congregants allowed in the mosque during the various phases of opening will be mandated.

These are unprecedented times but coming together for our traditional prayers is one of the five pillars of Islam. We are so looking forward to opening the mosque and welcoming everyone back to our place of worship. It has been a difficult time for everyone, and we have missed the community.
