We were horror-stricken to hear the news of the mass shootings at two New Zealand mosques during Jummah Prayers. Our heartfelt Duas go out to all of the victims, their families and the Muslim communities that have been tragically affected by the gunmen who killed our brothers and sisters half way across the world.
We have notified our local police departments in Chicago, Morton Grove and Skokie and requested extra patrolling the next few days, especially during our busiest hours on Fridays
and school times. We will also be hiring extra security personell to patrol in and around the building as well. Please be vigilant by keeping your eyes and ears open and being aware of your surroundings. Report any suspicious activities to security staff or the police and help your fellow brothers and sisters if they require assistance. And most important, always trust in Allah (swt).
