    City University and University of Westminster ???

    Assalaam alaikum.........

    I am just wondering how is it for Muslims in these univeristies, I mean City University and University of Westminster.

    Anyone been there or currently there.........?

    Could any one tell me of their experience there as a Muslim especially the sisters in Hijab/Jilbaab.


    Thanks

    Its fine. :D

    Loads of Muslims at both those universities, active Islamic societies, and sisters in hijaab and jilbaabs. Its a normal sight in most universities in London alhamdullillah. :)
    What does 'freedom' mean?

    Does the eagle want to swim in the sea,
    Restricted by the sky?

    Does the fish want to dance on the wind,
    Not enough river to explore?

    Yet the sky is freedom for the bird
    but death for the fish,

    The sea is wide for the fish
    but will engulf the bird.

    We ask for freedom but freedom to do what?
    We can only express our nature as it was created.

    The prayer mat of the earth is freedom,
    freedom from slavery to other than the One,
    Who offers an shoreless ocean of love to swim in
    and a horizon that extends to the next life,
    Yet we chose the prison and call it freedom.

          As in they are apparent within the universities. Both the universities you mentioned are part of the University of London, and may often have interrelated talks/ gatherings.

                    All of them have Islamic societies. :up:

                    Once you join up to your society, you will be kept informed of events etc, not just for your own uni, but for other uni Islamic society's. :D Mostly done through email/ posters etc.

                    If you are asking about what type of societies they are, ie: their thinking, well I only know about a few of the Universities of London.

                    Are you planning on going to either of these universities bro/sis? :)

                          No way. :p

                          King's (Waterloo campus) has the BEST prayer room I have ever seen (trust me I've seen a few :D )

                          It is purpose built, in their new (now old) building, and has full wudu facilities. ;)
