Warwick has a wide variety of students, from British to International students like Indonesians. The heterogeneity that Warwick has includes religion and beliefs. One of them is Islam.  In this post, I will give some information relating to the Warwick Islamic Society (ISOC). The Muslim community at Warwick has more than 7,000  members or followers for the Facebook account, Warwick Islamic Society. 

Ramadhan is approaching the end. We, all Muslims, are grateful that we can experience Ramadhan this year despite the covid-19 challenges. The end of Ramadhan means that Eid Mubarak is coming. Eid probably will be on Thursday 13 May. In this Ramadhan, ISOC has organized some activities, such as providing food for Iftar and Tarawihs. However, you need to register to get the ticket to access the Chaplaincy or get the Iftar food. It must be done since space is limited due to covid-19 restrictions. To register, you can fill the form provided on the website https://www.facebook.com/WarwickISoc/about/?ref=page_internal. You can check this website to find the link to register for Jumu’ah praying. Again, registration to get the ticket is needed due to covid-19 restrictions. It means that the spaces for praying at Chaplaincy are limited.  

For those, especially Muslim freshers, Warwick university provides us with a chaplaincy (a mosque) to pray. It is located just behind the Senate House, close to the Warwick Art Centre. The building has a back and nice front yard. In the front, there is an open area where you can sit and relax to have lunch or study outdoor (summer is the best time for doing this due to the cold weather in other seasons, unfortunately). Also, there is a labyrinth where you can reflex on yourself and take some breaks to charge your batteries. Doing self-reflection here is quite refreshing.  There is an open area in the backyard with a similar function to the front, except the labyrinth. 

Welcoming Eid this week, ISOC has opened registration to those who want to pray on Thursday. You can find more detailed information on the ISOC webpage on http://warwickisoc.com or follow them on Facebook Warwick Islamic Society. This year is unique. The ISOC will provide food and snacks for us after praying Eid. It will take place in the back yard of the Chaplaincy. I hope to see many of you there on that day.
