|Alhamdulillah, our state is gradually approaching a decrease in the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. Recently the New Jersey Governor has relaxed the outdoor gathering restrictions to 25 people, including outdoor gatherings for the houses of worship.|
As mentioned earlier, Islamic Center of East Brunswick (ICEB) Administration is working to put together a framework that will help us gradually reinstate the Musallah activities, InshaAllah.
By the will of Allah, Starting June 5th ICEB will be holding Friday prayers at Heavenly Farms, East Brunswick. Below is a link to google maps for navigation purposes.

4-5 min short Khutbah, followed by a Jummah SalahThe health and safety of our community is the utmost priority. If the maximum attendance of an ongoing Salah is met, please cooperate with the volunteers and wait for the next Salah and do not rush. It is critical for all of us to adhere to the guidelines and work together to keep everyone safe.
The following are the minimum guidelines that must be adhered when coming to Jummah prayers;FACE MASK is mandatory and no one will be allowed without one. No Exceptions.Everyone must bring their own PRAYER RUG. No Exceptions.Males only.Maintain social distancing in sufoof (rows).Come five minutes before Iqama time and Pray Sunnah before and after the Fard Salah at home.Come with Wudu.Please do not bring children under the age of 13.If you are over 65 or sick and have flu like symptoms (flu, cough, sneeze, runny nose, headache, joint pain, etc.), please STAY HOME and do not come.Please refrain from socializing before or after the SalahAvoid shaking hands. Verbal Salam would be sufficient.During these challenging times, we expect all congregants to be responsible for adhering to these guidelines. ICEB Administration may revisit these instructions and guidelines based on the feedback from the first few prayers.
Please feel free to reach out to ICEB with your suggestions and feedback as we cautiously go back to normalcy.
Since this situation is very dynamic and rapidly changing, please continue to follow the CDC and/or the local official websites for up to date information.
May Allah S.W.T protect us and keep us in His mercy and protection. We pray for the safety and health of everyone, Aameen
