ONTARIO – Brock University’s Muslim Students’ Association dared bad weather and several delays to run a successful Islamic Awareness Week, bringing Islamic faith closer to their colleagues, The Brock Press reported.
“Islamic Awareness Week is about getting rid of all of the stereotypes of Islam and helping Muslims learn more about Islam, as well. It’s directed to everyone, including Muslims, non-Muslims, and anyone of any orientation,” said Mallick.
The initial events took place in February. However, due to bad weather, several events were pushed to the week of March 4.
Despite these setbacks, the MSA’s efforts to promote Islamic awareness on campus reaped its fruits.
The Muslim Student Association, or Muslim Student Union, of the US and Canada, also known as MSA National, is a religious organization dedicated to establishing and maintaining Islamic societies on college campuses in Canada and the United States.
