    Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

    We the Albion College Muslim Student Association, are hosting our first Islamic Awareness Week of recent years. We are attempting to give people a broad view of Islam. Topics during the week range from Shi’i Islam to punk rock in Islam. Everyone is welcome. We will be deeply touched by the support of local Ummah and Alumni/ae. Here is a list of the week’s events with a brief description of each.
