Masjid Reopening

Assalamu alaikum. Please note the following reopening plan for Islamic Center of Riverside. Be sure to pay close attention to safety instruction before you arrive.

One of the essential Dua, we should repeat in our life is (O my Lord! make me one who perform prayers and from my offspring, our Lord! and accept my invocations – Dua’) (Quran: 14, S:40) أخبرنا الله تعالى عن دعوة إبراهيم عليه السلام، فقال سبحانه: : " رب إجعلني مقيم الصلاة ومن ذريتي ربنا وتقبل دعاء" إباهيم آية 40 This Dua to Allah Taala is help us establish the prayers in our lives and for the prayers to be a distinguishing action for our progeny after us is a unique and very important.

Prayer (Salah) is the real connection between us and Allah Taala on a regular and formal way. Therefore, we, at ICR management, boards, and community are eager to re-open our center. So, we can collectively worship Allah and make the Dua’ and continue our mission in our society. We have applied for permission to re-open, we have prepared the place for worship, and we will keep all regulations and rules in mind when we come over to the Masjid. Insha-Allah.

We ask for your cooperation by doing the following:
1. Please stay home if you are sick and not feeling well.
2. Please come ready for Salah (with Wudo) ten minutes before Iqamah
3. Please have your mask on while you are in the Masjid. And keep the distance.
4. No children under 13, and no food or drink or socializing after Salah.
5. There will be hand sanitizer if needed at the entrance.
6. The Masjid will open for Fajr, Magrib and Isha Insha-Allah.
7. Please donate generously especially now, there are a lot of needs for fund.

Please review the Corona Virus Risk Advisory at

Finally, we are sure that this calamity of (COVID-19) challenge will be over soon Insha-Allah. Our Iman will be stronger and Allah is with us. Insha-Allah. May Allah protects all of us, safes us from all evils and bless us all. Walhamdu-Lillah Rabi Al-Aalameen.

From the desk of Imam/Director: Mahmoud Harmoush Dear brothers and sisters: Assalamu Aalaikum Warahmatu Allah. قال الله تعالى : (الذين إذا أصابتهم مصيبةقالوا إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون الئك عليهم صلوات من ربهم ورحمه-والئك هم المهتدون) البقرة-156-157 Allah (SWT) said: (For those who are hit with a calamity, they will say we belong to Allah and to Him we returned, they will have the peace and mercy of Allah) (Al-Baqarah 156-157). Dear brothers and sisters: Last week brought to us sad news of the departures of few people in our community. It is heartbreaking to know that Hajj: (Abu Baker, Mohamad Ahmad), who used to be very active in the early days of the Islamic Center of Riverside, has passed away. We would like to offer our sincere condolences to his family and friends including to his wife Umm Ahmed, son Ahmed, and his daughters, Sarah, Somaia, Nanice, and his in-laws, Omar Zaki and Mohamad Ashraf. The funeral services (Salatu Al-Jannazah) will be at Montecito Memorial Park at 3520 E. Washington St. Colton, CA 92324 on Tuesday, 12/29/2020 at 12:30 PM. Also, we have lost our dear brother Hajj Magid Noureldin, the director of Masjid Al-Rahma and the Food Bank in Moreno Valley. He was a dear friend of mine and well known in the community. The funeral services (salatu-Al-Jannazah) for him will be on Wednesday, 12/30/2020 at 9:00 AM at the Corona Cemetery located at 1125 Rimpau Avenue, Corona CA 92879. While attending these services please follow all regulations and health requirements including wearing masks, maintaining social distance and making the visit short. Additionally, we lost a sister (Umm Ibrahim Surdari) who use to come to ICR with her daughter sister Eman for the Center’s activities. She was buried at the Corona symmetry last week. May Allah bless their souls and include them among the believers in Jannat Al-Naeem. Ameen.
