Alhamdulilah, by the grace of Allah SWT, we have found that we require more space for Jumuaa prayer. For the rest of the semester, we will be holding Jumuaa prayer in meeting rooms in the Reitz Union, rather than the Reflection Room as we did in the past. The schedule for the semester is as follows: 10/12 Room 3315 10/19 Room 3315 10/26 Room 2365 11/02 Room 2365 11/09 Room 3315 11/16 Room 3315

Islam Makes Sense: Session 1

Islam Makes Sense: Session 1

Past Events
“Islam Makes Sense” will focus on three distinct aspects of Islam that virtually all Muslims are super-familiar (read: even kinda bored) with: the Quran, the sirah, and salah. The point of these sessions is to go through each of these aspects of Islam and show how they're actually fascinating and can be very engaging. We will be discovering previously-unheard of gems from Surah Yusuf, exploring concrete, relatable 21st-century lessons to be derived from vignettes of the Prophet's life, and gaining information that transforms salah from a ritual habit to something that's a visceral experience each you time you engage in it. Discovering how logical and enriching these fundamental aspects of Islam are can help make a dent in our appreciation of this deen. These seminars will be informal and student…

Love for the Prophet and His Family

Love for the Prophet and His Family

Past Events
As we all know, the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is one of the most beloved figures in all of history. As Muslims, it is part of our faith to have love for the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) but, sometimes it can be difficult to have love for someone who we are not in direct contact with. Because of that, it is imperative that we refresh our love for the Prophet. Join Islam on Campus on Wednesday, November 19th at the Arredondo Cafe for our 3rd General Body Halaqah.
