Important: Future of Prayer Space on Campus

Jazakom Allah khayran for helping out with the surveys and the chapel sign up. We greatly appreciate your time and cooperation.


The MSA team is currently recruiting individuals who are interested in helping out with the prayer and wudu area project.


This comes as part of us, the muslim community at the University of Guelph, being engaged partners in the issues that affect us.


The university is currently looking into where we will be praying in the future if the current usage patterns remain as such in the chapel and at Juma'a. The first official presentation of the MSA's proposal will be on Nov 19, 2012 insha Allah at the UC board meeting by the director of Student Life, Laurie Schnarr.


To know more about this project or/and to help out, please email sjamal@uoguelph.ca with MSA in the subject line.
