Due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation as well as direction from government and health officials, the Apex Mosque (until further notice) will be open on a limited basis for DAILY PRAYERS ONLY. Please immediately leave the facility after prayers. All programs and other activities are suspended. In addition Al-Ihssan Sunday School, Quran School and Al-Manara Preschool will not be in session for students. Please monitor our website for further updates.
Congregants should exercise their discretion in coming to the center for daily prayers. Congregants who are particularly vulnerable, including the elderly, those with underlying medical conditions, and those with weakened immune systems should not come to the masjid. Congregants with a fever, flu-like symptoms, or consistent coughing and sneezing must not come to the masjid. Those who are concerned, fearful, or find hardship in coming may pray in their homes based on the rukhsa (license) given for such conditions.
Apex Mosque is in touch with area mosques through the Triangle Imams Council, and is monitoring local and state actions taken during this time.
