  • Not enough parking spaces at my masjid

    Salaams.

    Today at Jummah, there were not enough parking spaces for everyone. My masjid is currently building a rec center next to the masjid instead of a new parking lot, so at Jummah today, our parking lot was so crowded I saw Muslims in cars behind me backing up, turning around and leaving. There were not enough spaces for everyone. A construction worker working on the new rec center had to offer me a spot on the new grass by the rec center to get the last spot.


    My masjid doesn't have priorities in order :(
    Dreams feel real while we're in them. It's only when we wake up do we realize something was actually strange.

    You could try parking a couple of blocks down and walking.

      :wswrwb:
      ...turning around and leaving.
      :confused:

      I hope they went to another masjid, not home.

      Does the manager of the masjid knows about this?

      They should put some sheets on the parking lot and make space for prayers there. People can park their car somewhere close and walk :insha:
      Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

      "A person who is blessed with the ability to be grateful, shall never be deprived of barakah and increase in blessings."
      - Rasulullah (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم)‎

        can you walk to the masjid? What about public transport? When I used to live in Exeter there was always limited parking at the masjid so the imam said that unless you were disabled or totally couldn't get to the masjid at all without the car, that everyone should walk or get the bus.

          In Bay Area, Fremont (cali) a church used to let us park in their lot. It was just a block from the masjid.

            donate em $$
            Reported by Ibn al-Salah:

            ولقد أحسن الحسن بن أبي زياد اللؤلؤي صاحب أبي حنيفة فيما بلغنا عنه أنه استفتي في مسألة فأخطأ فيها ولم يعرف الذي أفتاه فاكترى مناديا فنادى أن الحسن بن أبي زياد استفتي يوم كذا وكذا في مسألة فأخطأ فمن كان أفتاه الحسن بن أبي زياد بشيء فليرجع إليه
            فلبث أياما لا يفتي حتى وجد صاحب الفتوى فأعلمه أنه أخطأ وإن الصواب كذا وكذا والله أعلم

              So the Church authorities knew you were all Muslims parking for Jumuah salah ?

              if yes then that is very nice of them .
              Where there are no Ulemah(Scholars) there are many Muftis.

                There's a church right next to the mosque I go to for Jumu'ah and they also open their entire parking lot for us and we open ours for them which they seldom request. I personally park a bit of distance to avoid being stuck in the parking lot and plus the walk is good.
