Message from The Islamic Shura Council of Southern California
As most of you are aware, the State of California has released guidelines for the reopening of places of worship by way of a 13-page document.
Shura Council, alongside a pool of experts, has reviewed the document and condensed it to this easy-to-read document titled “Guidance on Reopening Mosques”. Our document includes a memo on the first page followed by 4 pages of specific guidance on how to safely open, concluding with a one-page checklist.
While we all wish to open our masajid as soon as possible, it must be done as safely as possible. We must prepare our centers and community properly before opening and ensure that all preparations are made.
Before reopening, all facilities must:
- Perform a detailed risk assessment and implement a site-specific protection plan.
- Train employees on how to limit the spread of COVID-19, including how to screen themselves for symptoms and stay home if they have them.
- Implement individual control measures and screenings.
- Implement disinfecting protocols.
- Implement physical distancing guidelines.
Community Responsibility During COVID-19 Pandemic
For safety & well-being of our community, the Burbank Islamic Center will remain closed for all prayers and functions until further notice. We pray to Allah SWT for relief.
Every Muslim’s Obligation
Just as fasting in Ramadan and establishing prayer are pillars of our faith, payment of Zakat is part of what makes us Muslim. As we head into the last ten nights of this blessed month, Burbank Islamic Center would like to provide you with links below to make your Zakat payments and donations. As always Zakat Almal is 2.5%.

In The Name Of AllahThe Benificient The Merciful
Prophet (PBUH) said,
“The first matter that the slave will be brought to account for on the Day of Judgment is the prayer. If it is sound, then the rest of his deeds will be sound. And if it is bad, then the rest of his deeds will be bad.”
