After Isha prayer on Thursday 7th January Dar Ul Isra will close its doors for all daily prayers and Friday prayers. This decision was not taken lightly and was made in light of the very high levels of COVID-19 cases, hospitalisations and deaths locally.
We will keep the situation under constant review.
At the heart of our decision was to ensure the safety of our congregation, our staff and our volunteers.
In Islam, the preservation of life is of the utmost importance and a key governing principle used to formulate rulings in the Shari’ah, as is the case here.

- Dar Ul Isra Management -
Dar Ul Isra is a mosque and community centre in the heart of Cardiff. The COVID support project was launched to help meet the needs of the community during this difficult time. Our response has 3 main arms. The first is to try and help protect those working tirelessly to protect us- the NHS frontline staff, through our PPE appeal. The second is to support vulnerable members of the community with food and supply delieveries and the third is our chaplaincy support. We want to support and guide you through these difficult times, in particular if you face the challenges of losing a loved one in this crisis.
"Be merciful to those on the earth and one in the heavens will have mercy upon you"
- The Prophet Muhammed PBUH -
Remember, the mosque may be closed but your connection with Allah (God) can stay open and strong. The beauty of our faith is its simplicity and accessibility. You do not need an Imam or scholar to reach God. You do not need a mosque to pray- any clean spot will do. You can pray alone or with others.
“And when my devotees ask you concerning me, tell them I am near. I answer the prayer of those who call to me”- Holy Quran
Likewise, please remember you do not need money to give charity. As our beloved Prophet taught us even a smile to another is a form of charity. A kind act or simple word should never be underestimated.
