Brothers and Sisters, Assalaam-Alaikum
It has been such an enormous blessing for the Muslim community this year, to be able to gather and pray in our places of worship, and to be able to perform Taraveeh prayers in congregation this Ramadan. Lately women and children also in our community have been able to join in Jummah and Taraveeh prayers. Certainly, Alhamdu-lillah, we have come long ways from where we were a year ago and we are thankful to Allah Subhana-Talah for this blessing and many more.
While we have a right to fully enjoy our rediscovered freedom, let us not forget that we are not out of the woods just yet and cannot afford to drop our guard. Covid-19 has not gone away and in fact it is still darting around the world in its varying forms and infecting innocent people. So, let us keep out masks on, practice social distancing, and wash our hands often. It is good to know that many folks in our community have already been vaccinated for Covid-19. Each one of us should do the same, as soon as possible, to protect ourselves and others that we come in contact with.
