This coming Friday (12/28) we will plan to hold the jumuah prayer at Moosalla Noor (111 E Seneca Street) in downtown Ithaca. Anabel Taylor Hall is closed between December 24 and January 1 and no services can be scheduled during this time. This is a based on a new university policy where certain buildings on campus, including Anabel Taylor Hall, must be closed and left unoccupied during staff breaks.
The door of the Moosalla will be open before 1pm and we will plan to begin the khutba at the regular time, 1:15pm. Please walk down the driveway and use the side entrance to the building. See the map below for location details and suggestions for parking. We cannot park in the driveway on weekdays but there are many convenient options close by. The Seneca@Commons TCAT bus stop is a block away. Please plan accordingly and arrive early if possible.
We have prepared the rooms downstairs and upstairs with prayer rugs and should be able to accommodate the numbers of people we typically have during the Cornell break. You may wish to bring a prayer rug. The facility has two small bathrooms.
Next week, jumuah prayer will continue in Anabel Taylor Hall as normal.
There will be a community potluck today (12/8) from 5-8pm at GIAC (301 W Court St, Ithaca, NY). Please bring a dish to share.
If you are not able to prepare a meal to bring please come and join us anyway, there is great benefit in our being all together and your company is valued.
If you would like to order fresh meat, please place your order by tomorrow (12/9):
The availability date would be at the end of the following week at the earliest.
Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
The children Islamic school will continue Sunday starting at 10am.
Each child is also expected to bring his or her notebook (provided on the first day of classes) each week as well as his or her own lunch.
Brothers and sisters will be gathering to recite Dua Kumayl and have dinner Thursday after Isha prayer (~6:20pm) at the moosalla. Please note that if there is extreme weather conditions, then it will be canceled.
Brothers gather every Friday following Isha prayer (~6:20pm) to read Quran and hadith.
The Jumuah prayer will be held at the normal location and time today (11/23) at 1:15pm, One World Room in Anabel Taylor Hall, Cornell University. Because the University is officially closed, the only unlocked door will be the side door exiting to the Anabel Taylor Hall parking lot with the Cul-de-Snack sign. This is the same door we normally enter and leave by when we do the Taraweeh prayers during Ramadan. The Anabel Taylor Hall parking lot can also be used for parking.
