Salam. Having entered the last 10, most blessed nights of Ramadan, and in consideration of Gov. Abbott’s most recent declarations, the Duncanville Islamic Center recognizes the desire of many to return to the masjid in a safe and secure manner.

Therefore, for the remaining duration of these last 10 nights and days, Duncanville Islamic Center will be partially opened according the following rules and regulations (to ensure the maximum security and health of the community):

⏰ beginning *tomorrow* (Friday, May 15) the masjid will be open for Fajr prayers (5:45 am), Jumu’ah prayers (1:30 pm), Isha prayers (9:45 pm), and Taraweeh prayers.

📍attendees must pray on marked prayer spots (maintaining 6 feet distance from others at all times).

📍maximum number of attendees will be capped at 75, on a first come first serve basis.

📍 doors will open 15 minutes before Isha, Fajr, and Friday prayers.

📍only one door will be used for entrance and exit - the west entrance, usually used for Jumu’ah prayers.

It is our sincere hope and prayer that Allah relieve us of this pandemic disease and allow us to enjoy our masjid to its full capacity once again!

Donate now: www.dicenter.org/donate. No amount is too little!

Today was the first day of the last 10 days of Ramadan. Here’s my challenge to you all, I call it the “10 for 10 Challenge!”

Starting today, donate at least $10 or more every day for the next ten days to a charity of your choosing. It can be a mosque, a relief organization, an orphanage, etc.

This way, you’re guaranteed to donate on the Night of Decree, which as you know, the worship during it is better than the worship of one thousand months!

May Allah write our names amongst those whose worship (as little as it may be) is accepted on the Night of Decree. Amen!


5/13/2020 - Qur'an'tine: "Live Taraweeh - Night 21”


𝗝𝗼𝗶𝗻𝘁 𝗦𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗿𝗲𝗴𝗮𝗿𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗖𝗢𝗩𝗜𝗗𝟭𝟵:

“As we enter the third week of Ramadan, this document serves as an update concerning the guidelines and recommendations for programs and services conducted by Islamic institutions during the COVID 19 pandemic.

The COVID19 illness is caused by the SARS-Cov2 virus which is known to spread from person-to-person via respiratory droplets released when someone speaks, coughs, or sneezes. These viral droplets can infect someone when they breathe in these droplets or pick them up from surfaces such as door handles. The most common symptoms of those infected include: a persistent cough, a high fever, a low-grade temperature, difficulty breathing, body aches, loss of taste, and loss of smell. The effect of the COVID19 pandemic worldwide has shown us that the infection has a greater potential for harm than the seasonal flu and poses a significant threat to adults of all ages. The highest risk for death is in the elderly and immunocompromised although the disease has also caused hundreds of fatalities in young adults.

Judge Clay Jenkins of Dallas County remarked on April 28th. 2020 that Dallas county has not met two vital criteria recommended by health care experts necessary for the complete opening up of our economy in North Texas: 1) the number of confirmed new COVID19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths needs to decline for two consecutive weeks, 2) there needs to be greater access to testing in the state of Texas to identify new hotspots1. Neither of these criteria has been met. The number of cases continues to rise in the North Texas area, specifically in Dallas County and the surrounding counties within the DFW Metroplex.

The best protective measure currently available is the prevention of viral spread through strict social distancing measures.

Based on the above information, our current recommendation has not changed and we continue to advise all North Texas Islamic institutions to do the following till May 31st. 2020:

1. Continue to suspend all services, functions, and events in which their members or attendees could gather and facilitate viral spread

2. Consider screening in-office employees for symptoms daily, offer complementary work-from-home options for those that qualify, and consider having their employees utilize masks to impede potential respiratory spread

3. Implement regular infection control measures such as disinfection of commonly used surfaces like door handles

Texas’ Governor Greg Abbott recently passed an executive order on May 1, 2020 and a revised order on May 5, 20202 to release some of the restrictions on essential community services including allowing religious institutions to function at reduced capacity. We express concern about the public health implications of these measures in our area, as the number of cases continues to rise in the North Texas region.3

As some North Texas Muslim communities are considering restarting some services -- such as Taraweeh prayers, I’tikaaf, Jumuah, and food distribution drives -- at reduced (25%) capacity, we reiterate our strong recommendation to suspend activities in our institutions until the end of May.

The following outlines more specific guidelines in how an institution can attempt strict social distancing & disinfectant protocol for absolutely essential communal Islamic services (e.g. certain prayers, food distribution drives for those in need, etc.)

For in-facility attendance (e.g. prayers in the masjid, etc.):

-Initially start at a reduced capacity of 10% and evaluate the situation every week.

-Wherever possible hold masjid services and prayers outside.

-Use a standardized questionnaire to screen all worshippers/entrants for fever, cough, shortness of breath or any other concerning symptoms

-Restrict attendees to only those whose attendance is determined obligatory (e.g. healthy persons under the age of 60)

-Check the temperature of all entrants and only allow entrance if temperature is

Our Story

The Duncanville Islamic Center was first established in December of 1995 and was located in a small suite, a single unit of its current location at 1419 Acton Avenue, Duncanville, TX 75137. Over the years, the masjid and community expanded and as such began to purchase the rest of the building as the need for growth demanded.

The focus of the Duncanville Islamic Center has evolved far beyond being simply a place of prayer for Muslims and is now a central hub of activities and services filling the needs of the Muslim community in and around the Duncanville area. Besides regular religious services, current programs include educational classes and lectures for both adults and children, youth group programs, and more.

Our community consists of nearly every kind of ethnic group found in the Muslim world and beyond which brings a wonderful variety of people to each community activity.

Our imam and spiritual leader is Imam Qutaibah J. Abbasi. More about him can be found on his personal website: www.imamq.com. He can be reached via phone at: 972-709-5042, or via email at: [email protected].

Our masjid and its affairs are run by a six-member board of directors. Meetings are usually held monthly, at the masjid premises. If you wish to contact the board, feel free to email them collectively at [email protected]. Kindly understand that although they would like to respond to every email as promptly as possible, they ask for your patience when emailing them. Thank you.
