The Board of Trustees are delighted to announce that the masjid will be open for Jummah prayers from Friday 12 March 2021. This is conditional upon all mussallis following the safety guidelines:
Unfortunately due to social distancing, spaces are limited to 200 for brothers. Only those with reservations will be allowed entry. The number for sisters is 30.
You MUST wear your face mask at entry and exit and at all times in the masjid. If you do not have one, you may be refused entry.
You MUST bring your own prayer mat
You MUST have a plastic bag to put your shoes in and keep them next to you. Shoe racks are sealed.
You MUST NOT congregate inside or outside the Masjid
There are NO Wudhu or bathroom facilities.
Children under the age of 12 are not allowed.
We ask for your complete cooperation in these difficult times. Insha’Allah, we should get back to normal in the not too distant future. Reservation can be made from Tuesday morning at www.prayerslots.co.uk
You will be allowed to book for one other member of your family.
KMA often manages and conducts ghusl and funerals for Muslim families in the locality and beyond. Although we provide our services for free, there are instances when a family may need financial support for their funeral needs. For this reason, we have provided some information on support that your family may qualify for.
(1) There is a bereavement support of £2,500 lumpsum onetime payment from the government plus a monthly payment of £100 per month for 18 months, so a total of £4,300 by the govt through the DWP and it is quite easy to apply and available to mostly all qualifying people that do it in less than 48 hours.
To apply, either one can file the application online or the faster route is just to call the bereavement support line 08007310139 or 08001214433 option 3. The only information required is the name, DOB, N.I. number, date of death, address, bank sort code and account number, that’s all and within 20 minutes the application will be completed and filed by the call centre agent and the money will be in the account in less than 24 to 48 hours, if your application is qualified.
(2) There is also a funeral expenses reimbursement program, that is up to 60% of the actual cost of funeral that you spend will be reimbursed for which you need all supporting documents including the invoice from funereal directors. However, in order to qualify for this, either the deceased or their nearest kin (spouse, any of the surviving children etc) has to be on some kind of benefit such as universal credit, social housing, unemployment, child benefit and so on). To apply, one needs to call 08001214433 or 08009172222 or 08007310139 and they will guide it through.

It is with great news that we will be reopening the Masjid on Thursday 3rd of December 2020, starting with Fajr.
We will like to emphasize that in order to attend the prayers, you MUST comply with current government guidelines and wear a mask, as well as bring your own prayer mat and plastic bag to put your shoes inside in.
The community can now book a maximum of 2 places per person and no more. Please DO NOT book any spaces you will not use! Anyone attending the Friday prayer without a booked space is not guaranteed of a place.
