Those who wish to leave early, or soon after the program, are requested to park their cars at this site as they are unlikely to get blocked. Security arrangements have been made. Can I remind mumineen to please collect their cars within 30 minutes after the program end.
During Ashra-e-Muharram, the main car park will be reserved for disabled drivers and those in need. Special passes will be given. Please make sure these are displayed in your cars clearly. The spaces will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. For those who need these passes please see Brother Hussain Hirji in the security office. Please contact volunteers if assistance is needed once the car park is full. To avoid unnecessary congestion, kindly avoid driving around the ladies drop-off area unless extremely necessary. The main gates will remain closed for approximately 20 minutes after the program due to health and safety reasons.
