What is ISOC?
The Essex Islamic Society exists with the aim of serving and supporting a Muslim’s needs on campus, whether it be help in getting closer to Allah or socialising with others which ultimately strengthens the brotherhood and sisterhood bond, a vital aspect in Islam. We welcome everyone regardless of race, gender and religion.
"O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted." – Quran 49:13
As an ISOC member your university experience will be enriched through creating bonds with international friends, through dedication to charitable projects, through the knowledge gained from a variety of seminars and courses, through fulfilling your religious obligations, through engaging with the wider community and through the memories of all the laughs and thrills you shared when participating in the events and activities.
You will usually find brothers and sisters chilling out in the Multi-Faith Centre having tea, coffee and food until it's time for prayers or one of our weekly activities.
