About Us

The University of Reading Islamic Society is an active student run group within the Reading University Students Union (RUSU) which provides essential services for all its members such as spiritual, social and academic support. The main aim of the society is to create a comfortable environment where Muslims can practice their faith and for this purpose prayer facilities are managed  for both female and male worshippers at the Archway Lodge Building located on the Whiteknights campus. The society also organises sports activities such as football and charity events and also arranges lectures and exhibitions to promote a better understanding of Islam. In addition it also organises daily Iftar (breaking the fast dinner) and Taraweeh prayers (night prayers) during Ramadan.
