Universal Message of the Prophets

Presented by the Drexel Muslim Students Association

From Adam to Abraham to Moses to Jesus to Muhammad—all Prophets have been preaching the universal message to mankind across time and across the globe. The universal message being brought down to mankind since the beginning of time: is the the oneness of God [also known as tawhid]. The biggest religions today claim to follow this divine message, but what does it mean exactly? Marc Manley, a Muslim writer, educator and khatib, will give a lecture on the meaning and significance of the universal message each Prophet brought to the world. From one part of the world to another, from one Holy book to another—it all commanded the worship of God alone. You are invited to learn how the divine proclamation is prevalent in today’s society in an intellectual learning experience that holds great value on the world today.

The event will be held on April 18th, at 6pm in MacAlister 2019. For more information, please contact Drexel’s MSA or see the Facebook event page.

Drexel MSA Fast-A-Thon

The Drexel MSA would like to invite you to its Ramadan Fast-A-thon that will be held on August 20th. The goal of the Fast-A-Thon is to introduce Ramadan to the general public as a month of reflection on the world and religious activities that are meant to help achieve peace and tranquility. Also, it shows one of the meanings of fasting that is exemplified in recognizing the value of simple things, such as food and water, being mindful of their source, and also experiencing the difficult situations of people all over the world who are hungry due to lack of food. For this purpose, the money fundraised during the event will go to a charity organization, helping to alleviate hunger and homelessness in Philadelphia. The guest speaker will be none other than yours truly.

The event will take place in City View Room on the 6th floor of MacAlister (33rd st and Chestnut) from 7:30pm to 9:30pm on Friday, August 20th. To pledge to fast, please follow the link:
