A short summary of our project

We are looking to raise money to help fund a variety of exciting events, activities and educational campaigns in the upcoming year!

Although not set in stone and subject to approval by the Students Union, here is a rough plan as to what to expect in the upcoming year:

September: International students fair and Freshers Week.

October: Freshers activities and events, Charity Week with Islamic Relief.

November: TBC

December: Islamophobia Awareness Week

January: Women in Islam Week

February: Discover Islam Week

March: Believe and Do Good campaign in collaboration with FOSIS.

April: Talks/Lectures/Interactive workshops relevant to the exam period. 

Throughout the year we also intend to hold talks by guest speakers at least once a month, have weekly or biweekly educational sessions such as halaqas (religious gatherings) and Quran and Tajweed classes. There are also plans to hold regular social events for students on campus. FIFA nights have proven to be popular in the past, as have movie nights.

We are also exploring the option of collaborating with other universities across the Midlands to hold larger events such as football tournaments and paint-balling, plus loads more!

Most importantly, what would you like to see?! Let us know and we will do our best to deliver!

About us

The DMU Islamic Society is all about inspiring students through the message of Allah (God) and his Messenger (Muhammad, peace be upon him) to create a positive and united community on campus. We aim to represent and cater for the welfare, education and well-being of all Muslims on campus. We seek to provide a platform to support both Muslims and non-Muslims on campus.

We are the largest student society in the university, and one of the most prominent ISOCs across the Midlands. 

The society is also one of only a handful to have been awarded a ‘Gold Medal’ from the Student Union; underlining how we always aim to go above and beyond the call of duty in doing that little bit extra to ensure that everybody has the best possible experience during their time at DMU.

Where will the money go?

As mentioned above, the money will help fund everything we've planned for this year + loads more!

  • What will you spend the funding on if you hit your minimum?
  • The minimum amount will cover the cost of one of our educational campaigns!
  • Where will the money go if you hit your full target?
  • The full amount should cover the cost of everything that has been planned  إن شاء الله. 
  • What will you do with extra funds if things really take off and you raise more than your target?
  • We will ensure that the money is spent on anything (and everything) you'd like to see from us this year!
