The current outbreak of COVID-19 is having a profound effect on our society and specifically on the spirituality of our community. From canceling our programs restricting travel to ziyarat, changing how we socialize and communicate, everything is changing day-by-day and minute-by-minute.

As we all grapple with how to work through this challenging time, we are rapidly adapting to a “New Normal” that does come with some unique challenges and growing pains.

Az-Zahraa Islamic Centre is attempting to provide resources and assistance to all our community members, and here is a compilation of information that we hope will be useful to you.
