The Government announced a second lockdown, effective from Thursday 5 November 2020, stipulating that places of worship cannot hold congregational prayers. So, the East London Mosque will be temporarily closed for prayers from this date, until further notice.

The funeral service will of course still be operating. Funeral prayers held by family and friends will be limited to 30 people, in accordance with the lockdown rules.

The ELM full-time primary and secondary schools, and Rainbow Nursery, will still be open. All other services based here will be closed.

Essential advice and counselling, and the food bank for the needy and vulnerable, can be reached on our main number: 020 7650 3000.

We pray that everyone stays safe and well as these difficult times continue. May Allah help us all.

Please help us maintain our essential services through your kind sadaqah.
