What we do


We host a wide array of events throughout the year, ranging from religious educational events to our popular socials.

We also run events that engage with our local communities and offer opportunities for non-Muslims to discover more about our religion. 


We collated many resourses for students to learn and benefit drom, including online and in person courses.

These resourses are from third party Muslim organizations and we provide deals for students to study from them.


We created some unique and benefical guides for a variety of students to benift from.

This includes guides for freshers, international students, medics, dentists, and students looking for accommodation.
