Children During Taraweeh Prayer
Families with children under the age of 12 years, we kindly ask that you please take advantage of the programs designed for you.
Children over the age of 12 should remain with their parents and not be wandering the property unsupervised.
The Clifton Mosque offers a nightly Taraweh Camp for children between the ages of 4-12 in the Lower Level Hall of the Mosque.
The goal of the Taraweh Camp is to engage our children and teach them about Islam, while doing fun crafts and activities. Parents can, inshaAllah, have Khushu in their prayer knowing that their children are in a safe and engaging space.
Taraweeh Camp will begin the first night of fasting, May 6th, before Isha Prayer.
For mothers with children under the age of 3, we are asking that you pray Taraweeh prayer in the designated areas in the house next to the main building. We have set up 2 areas where the Prayer will be Live Streamed in real time.
Mothers with toddlers are invited to pray in the house musalla. The area is closed off, has been equipped with a Live Stream Screen, and there are toys for the children to entertain themselves with during the prayer. There are also mats for toddlers to nap on if they fall asleep during the prayer.
Mothers with babies are invited to pray in the house nursery. It is on the second floor of the house next to Imam Ismaeel’s office. This area is also closed off, it has been equipped with a Live Stream Screen, and there are infant supplies, such as swing, bouncers, toys, and a pack and play. There are couches in this room to make feeding infants easier during the prayer.
Our fundraising goal for Ramadan 2019 is $250,000, inshaAllah. These funds will help us to continue to build our community by maintaining the property and the masjid. It also funds all of the amazing programs that the masjid offers to our community, from educational to social events, and youth to Fiqh and Quran classes.
