Dear loving community,
Assalam'alaykum - Greetings of Peace! 

Jummah mubarak to you and your loved ones. May Allah grant you a week full of light and love, ameen

Today, I'm sorry to be writing to inform you that, in consultation with my team of doctors, we have decided that any attempt at containing the cancer is causing a quicker demise than helping. As such, sadly, with my family we've decided to focus entirely on giving me the best quality of life for however short many months are left. As such, Imam Sohaib intends for this to be his last bayyan as he takes leave from Princeton University.

Rest assured that PrincetonMLP virtual Jummah will continue with a rotation of excellent preachers.

This e-mail is to remind you all that you are invited to an Online Jummah Gathering starting at 1 PM today. We will begin with Qur'an Recitation of Surah Kahf by qariah Meryem Konjhodzic ‘23 followed by a spiritual address (bayyan) by Imam Sohaib, and conclude with a dua' (supplication) from seyyida Sabrina Mirza + adhan (call to prayer) with brother Yusuf Kocaman' 23.

Here is the link for you to join the jummah webinar: 
https://princeton.zoom.us/j/96887523127

The topic for the bayyan today is on "O my Guardian-Sustainer! Make me enter with sincerity, truth, honor, righteousness, and make me exit with sincerity, truth, honor, righteousness, and grant me, from Your Presence, an authority to help me."

In lieu of jummah prayers, you will pray 4 rakats of the early afternoon dhur prayer together with your family or household or by yourself before or after the online gathering.    
Please remember that jummah is a mini-Eid for the believers even during the pandemic. As such, begin the morning with a shower, put on your nicest clothes and musk, exchange good cheer, share food and sweets, thank Allah sincerely for all your blessings, and make abundant salaawat upon the noble Messenger Muhammad (s).

IMPORTANT Coronavirus & Princeton Muslim Life Notice

Assalam'alaykum beloved community, 

I pray that this note reaches you all in a state of peace and good health. 

I'm writing with the unfortunate news that the university is canceling all public and social gatherings at Princeton University in an effort to keep the community safe at a time when the Coronavirus is spreading. 

As such, this means that jummah prayers at Princeton University are canceled starting this week until further notice. If you are elderly or immunocompromised, it is advisable that you don't go to jummah or other large gatherings until the threat of the virus decreases. If you are going to jummah, we recommend going to any of the nearby Mosques and using sensible precautions. 

This also means that our public lectures will be canceled for the rest of the semester. 

We will try to move what we can to Zoom - an online platform for video conferencing. 

Stay tuned for other MLP programming that we may be able to move online otherwise assume that it is canceled. 

I realize this news will cause disruption to the flow of our community and our sense of togetherness. It's natural to be saddened or worried upon receiving this e-mail. I am personally saddened that the opportunities to see your bright faces and to have in-person conversations will be so limited for the foreseeable future. But, please know that I'm around and you can reach out to me during any time of need or otherwise - just send me an e-mail and we'll find a way to connect online. 

As soon as it is safe for our communities to once again be in communion, we'll let you know and be happy to reopen our doors! In the meantime, take good care of yourselves, be safe, and keep each other in your prayers. 

With much love and affection. 

fe aman Allah,
Imam Sohaib
