Welcome to the Muslim Students’ Association at UM’s Annual Banquet, “Beauty in Islam: The Light that Guides Us”.
For this year’s event, we are opening up the program to all members of the Muslim community here on campus. We would like speakers to express what they find beautiful about Islam whether through poetry, storytelling, spoken words, nasheed, Qu’ran recitation, art, etc. If you are interested in signing up to give a short presentation at banquet, please contact Mohammad Shaikh (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Nour Abughoush (email@example.com).
We also understand that many students on campus do not have cars, and want to ensure that everyone has transportation to the event. We are in the process of coordinating and providing rides – stay tuned for more information.
Join us this year on Saturday, January 28th for our annual intensive, the Sacred Time Project. This year it will be from 10AM-9PM and we will feature talks from Sheikh Abdul Nasir Jangda and Dr. Mohanned Hakeem. You can register for this event right here.
OSU’s annual MSA Midwest Conference is coming up this Martin Luther King Jr. weekend (Jan 14-15)!
Come join community members and MSA’s from all around the Midwest to hear from esteemed scholars and personalities on the effects of a Trump presidency, resulting in rising Islamophobic sentiment. This conference hopes to intiate a grassroots movement to create change where most of the community can, at the local level.

The Felicity Foundation opened a public space at the Lighthouse (408 E. Jefferson, check it out) this year, which marks the second year of the brothers’ house being a space for boys to congregate. After talking to a few girls about sisterhood on campus, now’s a good time to debut the idea of a……
The space would be similar to the boys in its lease-style setup and Felicity sponsorship, number of tenants (6-10), and rent ($400ish/month if doubling up, around $700 if you’d like to room solo) but unique in its purpose as *the* spot solely for ladies to hold programs, simply unwind and talk, or watch early 2000s chick flicks with jars of Nutella in hand.
Having a dedicated space presents an enormous amount of potential for Muslim sisterhood on this campus for years to come. In addition, we have an excellent resource in Sr. Leenah as a female chaplain.
The Ann Arbor housing market doesn’t really get heated until next month, but it’s best to be ahead of the game, especially for optimal rent and location. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP if you’re interested in joining in on the venture, more information, or if you just want to talk more about what the experience could look like next year. You absolutely don’t have to be a card-carrying member of the MSA or Felicity to join or even in undergrad, as we’d love to meet you anyways!
When: Friday, September 23 at 5 PM – 8 PM
Where: Island Park 1450 Island Dr, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48105
