Islam Awareness Season 2015

Our annual Islam Awareness Season (IAS) involves a campus wide initiative that aims to promote an understanding and appreciation of Islamic teachings through a number of interactive activities which draws the interest of all across campus. This includes the hosting of a professional exhibition, the deliverance of talks upon popular topics such as Islamic law, History and lifestyle given by reputable speakers, alongside other interactive activities which promote dialogue and discussion.

Such an initiative has proven to be highly valuable during an era when the media’s defamation of Islam is rife from which misconceptions and distortions take effect. It has therefore become our objective to counter the prevailing narratives so that the goodness and purity of Islam can be shared with all.

The wait is finally over!
