Assalamu Alaykum, I am an MPhil Economics student at Wolfson College. As the Graduate Chair, I am the point of contact on the committee for any issue related to graduate life at Oxford. Together with the graduate team, we will run events and initiatives dedicated to addressing the needs of the Muslim graduate community in Oxford insha'Allah.  "But when the righteous are asked, ‘What has your Lord sent down?’ they will say, ‘All that is good.’ There is a reward in this present world for those who do good, but their home in the Hereafter is far better: the home of the righteous is excellent." (Sura An-Nahl)

Asalaamu-alaikum! I'm Basim, a first year studying Maths and Computer Science at New College. As the current Treasurer, I'll be managing all the funding, budgeting and payments over the upcoming year insha-Allah. The OUIsoc is an incredibly diverse and active society which has had a massive positive impact on many Muslim students in Oxford - myself included. Please don't hesitate to contact me via email or WhatsApp about any financial concerns/suggestions and about life as a Muslim in Oxford. I'm also regularly around the prayer room so feel free to stop me for a general chat!      Your Lord said to the angels, "Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority (mankind)." They said, "Will You place upon it one who causes corruption therein and sheds blood, while we declare Your praise and sanctify You?" Allah said, "Indeed, I know that which you do not know."      - Qur'an 2:30

Assalamu Alaykum! I’m Safah, a second year historian at John’s. As Access Director my role is to oversee all of the Society’s outreach work. Our main aim is to encourage young Muslims to consider universities like Oxford and give them the tools to make a competitive application, while addressing potential social, cultural, and economic barriers. If you have any ideas for future events or would like the ISoc to do something in collaboration with your local mosque, school, or community centre, please get in touch!  “  A trial which brings you closer to Allah is better than a blessing which makes you forget Him.” - Ibn Taymiyyah

Assalamu alaykum! Im Ameerah a second year biomed student at St Hilda’s. As the Isoc’s sister’s welfare and social officer I organise sister’s socials and deal with any welfare concerns the sisters may have! If you have any concerns/questions or just want a chat do drop me an email or fb message inshallah!    The Prophet said, "No fatigue, nor disease, nor sorrow, nor sadness, nor hurt, nor distress befalls a Muslim, even if it were the prick he receives from a thorn, but that Allah expiates some of his sins for that." Sahih Bukhari

Salaam everyone! I'm Iram, a first-year historian at Merton and I'm the Politics Officer for the coming year. I aim to raise awareness and stimulate discussion surrounding the numerous political and social issues the Muslim community faces today, and also hope to inspire a move towards enacting change. Please feel free to get in touch with any ideas you have about what what kind of events you would like to see!    'And whoever puts his trust in Allah, He will suffice him. Indeed Allah fulfils His command. Indeed Allah has ordained for everything a measure.' (Al-Talaq, 65:3)

Salaam. I'm AbdurRasheed, a first year physicist at Keble College. My role as Islamic Awareness Officer means that I am primarily in charge of running interfaith events, such as panel discussions and formal dinners, and the annual Discover Islam week.    Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth; and the variation of the night and the day; and the ships that run upon the sea with what benefits mankind; and the water God sends down from the sky whereby He revives the earth after its death, scattering all manner of beasts therein; and the shifting of the winds; and the clouds subdued between the sky and the earth are surely signs for a people who understand. [Qur'an 2:164]
