COVID-19 Statement from MUHSEN

COVID-19 Statement from MUHSEN

Town Hall update

November 10th, 2020

Assalam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu
Dear Community Members and Leaders,

On behalf of MUHSEN, we would like you all to be aware that we are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation and keep the safety of everyone as priority at all times.

For any events coming up in the next few months, we will not be doing anything in person and will encourage all our nationwide chapter’s events to be virtual. All awareness events, support groups, and workshops are encouraged to be online for our Muhsen certified masajid. For weekend schools, we encourage them to stay virtual and follow their local masjid’s guidelines. Respite care will continue to be discontinued as we are not allowing volunteers in person. Virtual volunteer opportunities still exist. Muhsen Umrah is postponed (please see statement on Umrah page) and the decision will be reevaluated in March 2021. 

We represent a vulnerable population and I urge you all to take precautions seriously. This virus is lurking and those who are carrying it may not even know or have symptoms yet. Let’s practice social distancing and wear masks as requested by professionals. The COVID-19 situation is surging and we pray for the health and safety of everyone. The government and health officials are recommending cancelling events and not gathering in public in order to prevent this from spreading any more. 

With all that being said, we will still be working hard to continue the Muhsen Mission in whatever way the situation allows for. Awareness, Accommodation, and Acceptance will always be important and must not be overlooked even within our new normal.  

Allah (Swt) brought us to this and He will get us through it inshaAllah. We have to keep our faith in Allah (Swt) and He will not test us more than we can handle. May Allah (Swt) protect everyone. Ameen Ya Rab.

Kind Regards,
Joohi Tahir
