Dear sisters and brothers rahimakumullah,

In lieu of recent development and out of abundance of caution, we have made a decision to close masjid Istiqlal for 1 week, starting from today until further notice. Reopening is subject to further evaluation by the management. The quickest way to know the status of the Masjid Istiqlal complex is through Istiqlal Apps.

The following activities that usually draw more than 10 people will cease during total closure:

• All forms of sholat: All 5X Daily Prayer, Friday Prayer, all types of Sunnah Prayer individual or communal

• All forms of non-normative worship: Qur’anic Recitation, Halaqah, IQS, Tarteel Institute, INAMY

Parking lot and infrastructure development will continue as scheduled and is not affected by the closure. Several IAMC/Istiqlal essential caretakers are assigned to continue to be in property perimeter in order to perform complex deep cleaning as well as periodic welfare check to the property during the closure.

The management has formed a community support team to benefit family member who got affected by COVID-19 and must stay at home. Please contact brother Dharma Pohan for more detail information.

In the meantime, you can help the community by being vigilant of your health, and be considerate of others:

• If you are sick, please stay home

• Avoid visiting events/places where there will be large gathering for extended period.

• Avoid direct touching and wash your hands frequently.

We ask Allah Azza Wa Jalla to protect us from this sickness and all dangerous sicknesses. We ask Alah Azza Wa Jalla to grant recovery for those who have fallen ill.

Jazakumullahu khairan,

Wassalamualaikum wa rahmatullah

5 Pillars of Islam

Islam has five primary obligations, or pillars of faith, that each Muslim must fulfill in his or her lifetime.



The first pillar of Islam. Muslims bear witness to the oneness of God by reciting the creed "There is no God but God and Muhammad is the Messenger of God."



Prayer, is the second pillar. The Islamic faith is based on the belief that individuals have a direct relationship with God.



Fasting during the holy month of Ramadan, is the fourth pillar of Islam. Fasting is an exercise in self-control whereby one's sensitivity is heightened to the sufferings of the poor.



Almsgiving, is the third pillar. Social responsibility is considered part of one's service to God.



The pilgrimage to Makkah, is the fifth pillar and the most significant manifestation of Islamic faith and unity in the world.

  • "Fasting on the Day of 'Arafah absolves the sins for two years: the previous year and the coming year, and fasting on 'Ashura, (the tenth day of Muharram) atones for the sins of previous years." Reported by all except Al-Bukhari and At-Tirmidhi
