Please go ahead and read through them. If you were not present, I would highly recommend reaching out to either myself or Lyba Zia to get a better recap of the meeting. The notes alone cannot do justice to all of the discussion that we had at the meeting.
Under the bullet point named "Gameplan" you will find an outline of our approach to the elections. We will be meeting again as an Eboard to discuss any new complaints/suggestions that were made at the meeting before we continue with elections for this year.
We pray to Allah that there is Barakah in the work that we do, and that He accepts all of our efforts. Ameen. ... See MoreSee Less
Hey Salaam everyone! Please join us today at 4 in LSB 142 to hear a riveting talk by Professor Yousef Casewit about Prophet Muhammad pbuh and his impact.
Was Muḥammad pbuh a prophet of light or a prophet of politics? This talk will explore the ways in which medieval writers from al-Andalus and North Africa contemplated the pre-existential, terrestrial, and post-existential life of Muḥammad pbuh, and saw the Muḥammadan Reality as a manifestation of the principle that “God’s Mercy overcomes His Wrath.” ...

Salaam all! I hope you're enjoying your weekend! In case you missed the email sent on Wednesday, please vote for the a number of shura positions through the form below. Votes will not be collected past 12 pm (Noon) tomorrow.
With class registration right around the corner, I just wanted to mention a couple things.
So first off, I just wanted to remind you all to fix out a time in your fall semester schedule for Jummah. Let's be conscious (especially the brothers) of the Jummah timings and let's try to make an effort to schedule around them.
For the first half of the semester the Jummah timings will be at 1:40pm and 2:40pm. Then, when daylight savings comes around (November 5th), Jummah timings will change to 12:40pm and 1:40pm.
So try and keep a time open so that you can make Jummah for the entire semester. For example, if you keep the 1:40pm time free, you will be able to make it the entire semester. Or, for example, if you keep the 12:40pm and 2:40pm times free, then you will also be able to make it for the entire semester.
For anyone that has classes downtown: There is Jummah that is held near campus. It is located in the Lurie Medical Research Center which is at 303 E. Superior. It's held from 1:15pm-1:45pm on the first floor in the Gray Seminar Room. If there are enough people, we can also look into scheduling a Jummah on the downtown campus. Comment on here if you would be interested!
It is very important that we are conscious of Jummah when we schedule our classes. Just as a reminder, Allah directly addresses us in the Quran saying "O you who have believed, when [the adhan] is called for the prayer on the day of Jumu'ah [Friday], then proceed to the remembrance of Allah and leave trade. That is better for you, if you only knew."
And the last thing that I wanted to mention is that a brother of ours who is completing his PhD at Loyola, will be teaching a really interesting Sociology class next semester. I have attached a flier here with more details, and I would highly recommend looking into this class.
Assalamualaykum all! I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for coming out last night. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves in a very successful night for our MSA. Also, I would like to thank everyone for their contributions to make this week what it was. This was certainly a group effort and a lot of time went into this. With that being said, I can guess everyone is in bed flipping through our amazing historian pictures and bumping the new Kendrick Lamar track. This is totally fine but please do not forget Shura applications are due at midnight tonight!

SALAAM FRIENDS! In all of the ever contagious Islam Appreciation Week at Loyola University Chicago cheer, please don't forget that Shura 2017- 2018 applications are due in exactly 1 week! Apply, encourage your friends to apply, and iA take part in the wonderful and rewarding experience of community building!
Salaam everyone! Here is a message from the wonderful organizers of the Women's Day Conference:
As some of you may know, the Women's Day Committee is excited to highlight Sadika Sulaiman Hara as our keynote speaker this year! This will be the second year a Muslim woman will be speaking to the Loyola community as a part of Women's Day. Last year, we did not have as large a turnout from the Muslim community as we had hoped. This year, the conference is specifically focused on Faith in/and Feminism. Insha'Allah, we can all benefit from this conference, and support our community members that are presenting workshops! Islam is not exclusive from feminism, and I would personally love to see our community show up strong to support this conference. This conference is free and open to all, brothers I hope you all make it a point to attend and support the sisters that are presenting and organizing!
