We are the voice of Muslims in Durham University and we stand firmly hand in hand to live a memorable experience. We get to share our knowledge of Islam with one another and with the wider community.

In our prayer rooms, we provide services to help you practice your faith as a Muslim and have the chance to meet Muslim brothers and sisters for the sake of feeling a sense of solidarity and support.

We also organize several events, talks, and activities which you can be a part of. We are here doing our best to be as representative as possible for Islam and its teachings and we absolutely welcome your contribution.​​​​​
