    This is a society thread for followers of Islam to support each other and discuss issues which are relevant to them, with the understanding that those posting here believe in the core tenants of the faith.

    TSR societies are designed to be places where peers can connect and where conversation is respectful and supportive. So please do get involved!

    If you are not of the Islamic faith, but would like to learn about it, please visit the thread: Learning about Islam.

    If you would like to discuss or debate the religion of Islam (or any faith), please visit the Religion forum in the Debate and Current Affairs section.

    Debate of any kind is not permitted in this thread, or anywhere in the Faith and Spirituality forum.
    Posts to that effect in this thread will be removed and warned. This rule pertains to ALL users of this thread.

    At The Student Room, we’re proud of the sense of community in our society threads. This flourishes where members of that community participate with a genuine desire to connect with like-minded people, rather than engage in any negativity. It will be taken very seriously if any user is found to be working against that goal. Members of the TSR Islamic society play a key role in ensuring this society thread is a supportive and welcoming place for followers of Islam.

    When posting in this thread, please ensure you are upholding the TSR Community Guidelines, and treating others with respect at all times.
