Assalamo Aleikum ww. Respected Elders, We are a Jameah Masjid in Manchester UK. We have recently ordered 2 banners to put outside our masjid to support our front line workers against Covid 19 with a Rainbow which is a theme worldwide and all the household in UK put in their front window. After receiving delivery of the banner one of our respected masjid ulema said we should put the banner because of the rainbow because LGBT also use a rainbow sign which hardly anyone knows. Everywhere in the media and the whole UK population are using rainbow to show support to our front line workers and justifying in the media rainbow as a sign to cheer people up etc. If you allow me I can email you our banner and media articles regarding rainbow. Our other ulemas are happy to use the banner. The mosque will have to bear a lost of approx. £200 +/-. Please guide us to what to do in these difficult times. Jazakallah Executive Team

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Respected brother/sister
