Regarding Jumua and prayers with COVID-19

We pray that you are all doing well and staying healthy during the COVID-19 crisis. The Shurah of the ISNRV has extensively discussed the potential response to this global pandemic and has decided to suspend all the jumua prayers, daily congregational prayers at the masjid, and all other activities for the foreseeable future.

As we continue to be updated about COVID-19 by the CDC, it is essential that we take precautionary measures to insure the safety of our greater community. This decision is also consistent with the recommendation of the vast majority of the scholars. We will reconsider decision as the situation develops.

Mission Statement

The ISNRV's mission is to promote a closer understanding between all Muslims residing in the New River Valley and the surrounding areas in Virginia, and to foster a Muslim community based on the basic tenets of Islam. To that end, the ISNRV organizes religious, social, and cultural activities for the benefit of the Muslim community. In addition, the ISNRV strives to promote friendly relations and understanding between the Muslim community and the general public, and to disseminate information on Islamic principles.

Quran Verse of the Week

Allah (swt) says in Surat Al Baqarah:

O men, serve your Lord Who created you and those before you, so that you may guard against evil; Who made the earth a resting place for you, and the heaven a structure; and sends down rain from the clouds, then brings forth with it fruits for your sustenance; so do not set up rivals to Allah while you know (2:21-22)".

Faith is an important aspect of a Muslim's life. ISNRV strives to provide an enriching spiritual experience to Muslims in the New River Valley by holding daily congregational prayers, Friday sermons and prayers, Eid Prayers, and several religious activities that focus on the study of the Quran and the tradition of our beloved prophet (pbuh). Please, refer to our Calendar of Events to browse the different programs we offer.
