WHAT WE DO
The Islamic Society (ULISOC) is all about you. We aim to cater to the welfare, education, social and spiritual well-being of all Muslims on campus. ULISOC provides a platform to support and positively engage with Muslims and Non-Muslims. We strive to represent universal Islamic values and principles on campus such as peace, equality, justice and welfare through various means including:
Education: We hold events and Q&A Sessions to enhance your understanding of Islam. This includes workshops and inviting in speakers.
Socials: We organise sports events, games nights, lunches, dinners, and much much more. The objective is to bring people together to build brotherhood and sisterhood. These social events allow students to destress, make new friends and enjoy themselves in a halal, safe and good atmosphere.
Action: We strive to promote positive action on campus such as:
Fundraising with Charity Week Campaigns. Charity Week is an international effort that takes place annually to raise money for the most pressing causes in the world.
Campaigning for important issues such as Awareness of Mental Health and Awareness of Islamophobia.
Community work; volunteering for the deprived in the local community.
Interfaith work; engaging with other faith societies and other societies to promote a better understanding of co-existence.
We aim to cater to the spiritual needs of Muslim students by:
Arranging weekly Jumuah Salah/Friday Prayers
Running and maintaining the on-campus prayer facilities
Catering in numerous ways for students during Ramadan
Providing many opportunities for students to increase their good deeds and make a difference

SOME ADVICE FOR UNIVERSITY
Both the brothers’ and sister’s prayer rooms are located on the Mezzanine floor (between ground and first floor) of the Charles Wilson Building.
From the main entrance of the Charles Wilson Building, walk straight and go up the stairs to your left. Next, walk through two sets of double doors. The brothers’ prayer room is located immediately to your left, whilst the sisters’ prayer room is at the end of the corridor on your right.
There are separate ablution/wudu facilities for brothers and sisters just before the sister’s prayer room.
There is also a prayer room located in the Maurice Shock Building on University Road!
