Get ready for IAW....I....what ?

MSA's Islamic Awareness Week (IAW), is coming up on Feb 25th-28th.

During this week, we will be choosing an islamic theme and displaying it to the rest of the university. The purpose of IAW is to educate both muslims and non-muslims on campus about Islam. This year's topic will be the Prophet Muhammad PBUH. We are going to have 4 days jam-packed with Islamic games, speakers, videos and much more! All with the goal of educating others about the Prophet PBUH and the legacy he left behind.

Guess who's coming to Guelph this year??

Please e-mail; if you are interested in volunteering with our team during this annual event.

QQC is back !!! MSA@UoG represents . . . :-)

UPCOMING: Qira'atul Quran Competition (QQC).

Our MSA has been invited to participate in the 14th annual Qira'atul Quran Competition (QQC). This year QQC will be hosted at ISNA Canada Centre on February 23rd, 2013.

Two brothers and two sisters will be selected to represent our MSA. As always, the competition will focus mainly on tajweed and memorization and competitors will be marked by a neutral panel of judges (the sisters and brothers separately). The surah for this year's QQC will be Surat Al Naml.

The first place winners from both the brothers' and sisters' competitions will be awarded cash for their respective MSA's and the reciter with the highest score overall will receive an Ummrah ticket Inshallah.

Please email us at: if you wish to be considered for the selection process.
