As Salāmu ‘Alaykum Wa Raḥmatullāhi Wa Barakātuh Since March 8, Connecticut has seen a steady rise in COVID-19 (coronavirus) cases. In a matter of merely twelve days, one hundred fifty people have been infected with this virus and three people have died. Many people who may already have the virus can easily transmit it to others, even if they have no symptoms. Similarly, Gov. Ned Lamont has issued an executive order restricting more than fifty people from gathering together, while the federal government advises that more than ten people should not gather due to the highly contagious nature of the disease. The United States government, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other entities have been updating safety measures quite literally everyday as they learn more by the minute. n following suit with several Islamic centers throughout the country and in Connecticut, as well as in consultation with medical professionals, Islamic scholars, and the masjid Board board, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the temporary closing of the Islamic Center of vernon. Effective immediately, there will be no Jummah Prayer or any programs at the masjid until further notice. Though this was not an easy decision, please understand that this is a temporary measure to ensure the safety and well-being of our community.

Importance of Salah
After Shahadah, Salah is the first Pillar of Islam
Prayer, or Salat, was made obligatory for all Muslims, whether they be rich or poor, strong or weak, black or white, male or female. Prayer allows the believer to enrich their spirituality and cultivate the soul’s right to love and worship the Creator, Allah. “Verily, I am Allah! There is none worthy of worship but I, so worship Me and offer prayer perfectly for My remembrance.” [Quran, Taha, 13-14] The importance of prayer is conveyed constantly in the Quran and was also stressed by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh): “Know that among your duties, prayer is foremost”. The performance of prayer five times a day is considered vital to attain success in this life and the hereafter. Following the testimony of faith, performance of the prayers at their correct times and complete in bowings, prostrations and humility, will guarantee forgiveness from God and everlasting paradise. Muslims believe that the first matter that they will be brought to account for on the Day of Judgment is the prayer. If it is sound, then the rest of their deeds will be sound. And if it is bad, then the rest of his deeds will be bad.
