Assalamu Alaikum my brothers and sisters, I sincerely hope that each and every one of you are doing well, especially with the current political climate that we are experiencing. Please take a moment to read through this post.
In response to everything that is going on, I strongly believe that each and every one of us has a responsibility to step up and get to work. In the next few weeks, we are planning several different things as an MSA that will allow all of us to take action in our own capacities as Muslim students here on campus.
1) If you or a family member or friend has been affected in any way as a result of the recent political actions that have been made, please reach out to us. Alhamdullilah, our Chaplain Omer Omer M. Mozaffar is a great resource here on campus and he can either help you himself or connect you to someone who can help.
2) Next week, we are planning a week-long event called "Meet a Muslim" here on campus. We will be tabling in Damen all week with the intention and goal of educating others about ourselves, the current political climate, and Islam in general. We need all of YOUR help. Here is a link to sign up for a tabling shift if you would like to participate. We will be sending out more details to everyone who signs up to table. docs.google.com/document/d/1CUmGxsDntewpdJ1U-PDOMpaSOJK_MVasukVGVpVF1HY
3) It is kind of short notice, but there will be an Immigration workshop TODAY February 1st at 5pm in Cuneo 210. Here is a description: "Staff members from the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights will discuss: current enforcement priorities and ways to defend one´s rights regardless of immigration status; preparing an action plan with critical documents; identifying and reporting hate crimes; and how to get involved in the struggle for immigration rights."
4) We will be organizing a spelling bee in the coming weeks inshaAllah with the purpose of raising money for refugee families, so keep a lookout for that if you are interested in getting involved. ... See MoreSee Less

I hope all of you are doing well. It saddens me to say that one of our members has recently lost his brother and mother in law due to a car accident overseas. I ask that you all make dua for them. We will be holding a 'Azza for him after the second Jummah in which you can give him condolences. If you are free, please make an effort to come. Also, keep in mind that prayer is in Mundelein 14th floor today.

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu everyone! I hope you all find yourselves in good health and in a strengthened state of Iman. As the semester starts back up again, we find ourselves in a new year, with another chance at gaining what it is we seek in this life, along with that in the next. The Sunnah dedicated for this month, as well as that which will carry into February, is titled: A Forgotten Love. It's all about relationships, and how we as individuals can maintain the love in them, along with discovering what true love really is. I won't spoil too much, and I encourage all of you to take a moment and read the post, linked below. The writer, who wishes to remain anonymous, produced an incredible piece in which you'll find yourself moved. To learn, to recall, and to ultimately apply into one's life; that's the goal of the SIA. May Allah (SWT) reward the writer for their efforts and grant them success. May Allah (SWT) also make this a means for us of achieving greatness, both in this life and the next. Jan.Blog Post: ...

Salaam everyone! Tomorrow we will be protesting Trump's inauguration on campus. The protest begins at 12pm and we will be meeting in the east quad. If you are free, please make an effort to come. It is important to stand with our fellow students and show them that we will all stand together against any hate that has/will result from this man's presidency.
It is especially important that we have a Muslim voice present, so please come out if you can.
Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu everyone! I hope you find yourselves in good health and in a strengthened state of Iman. This month's sunnah in action is all about unison. You will find yourselves searching for the beauty in the phrase, We are but one Ummah, once more. It's easy to forget this simple, yet most meaningful concept in our dean, especially with everything going on right now. Please take a moment to read over the blog post for this month's sunnah, and let hope find you once again. Lastly, don't forget to look back on the Sunnah observed in September and October. Let's take them with us, as we continue this journey together! Nov. Blog Post: ... See MoreSee Less
