The Cardiff University Islamic Society (Cardiff ISoc) is an organisation formed by students, for students, to increase understanding about the religion of Islam and attempt to dispel the myths and misconceptions surrounding recent world events.
In addition, the society strives to support the Muslim student, to be free to practise their faith and socialise with peers in an otherwise intimidating environment.
Cardiff ISoc runs events throughout the year, and range from small socials to events running over a whole week, furthermore we have regular sporting events; these are open to all, regardless of race, gender or creed.
In all our decisions, we strive to follow the revelation of the Qur’an and the guidance of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).
Cardiff ISoc is chartered through the Cardiff University Students Union and is an affiliate of the Federation of Student Islamic Societies in the UK (FOSIS). FOSIS is the premier Muslim Student representative body, as well as the Muslim Council of Wales.
The society is not affiliated to any political groups and steers clear of pursuing a sectarian agenda. Although we are an independent body, we collaborate with the wider Muslim community, incorporating local mosques, schools, colleges and youth groups.
We respect differences of opinion both amongst Muslims and between Muslims and other faiths.
“Knowledge is of two kinds: that which is absorbed and that which is heard. And that which is heard does not profit if it is not absorbed” narrated by Ali ibn abi Talib (may God be pleased with him).
“The Dearest to Allah is the most beneficial to the people”, saying of the Prophet Muhammed (peace and blessings be upon him).
