Ahlulbayt Islamic Society

Who Are We?The Ahlulbayt Society (ABSoc) offers an environment for Muslims to settle into university life and embrace their faith and identity.We aim to adhere to the message of Islam as carried by the Holy Qur'an, Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and the Ahlulbayt (his Household), including: Upholding unity, tolerance, and respect Developing bonds of friendship and community Create dialogue and discussion to encourage the pursuit of knowledge and critical thinking We know that university life can be daunting with so many academic and social expectations, so we hope that ABSoc can provide you with an outlet to settle comfortably into the next chapter of your life, while also offering support and room for self-development.While we are a Muslim focused society, our events are organised to deal with contemporary issues, allowing us to benefit from the wide range of views that a university environment offers.What Do We Do?1.Dua Kumayl Discussions Circles (DKDCs)Weekly thought-provoking discussions covering a range of topics from religion and faith to cultural affairs and politics!
