LEARNING & CLASSES
Every semester, the Islamic Center at NYU offers a variety of classes, halaqas, book clubs, discussions groups and seminars open to the community at large.
Sheikhing it Up with Sheikh Faiyaz Jaffer Wednesdays, 7 - 9 pm
Weekly halaqas with reflections from the Qur'an, Prophetic traditions, and teachings of the Ahlul Bayt (a).
How to Walk Without Losing Balance: A Journey through the Verses of the Quran with Dr. Ali Mermer Thursdays, 7 - 8:30 pm
Alongside teaching the methodology of making Tafseer (exegesis) of the Qur'an, this discussion will provide members with practice by learning self-skills to demonstrate the Tafseer of certain verses (ayat) of the Qur'an, especially those which are more related to the fundamentals of tenets of Islamic tradition. This discussion encourages attendees to engage themselves with the Qur'an, to make them feel that the Qur'an is within their reach and that they can communicate with the Qur'an.
Halaqa times are subject to change. Subscribe to our newsletter for weekly updates.

ANNUAL UMRAH TRIP
In 2010, the Islamic Center at NYU lead an inaugural group of students, alumni, young professionals, and families, from the U.S., Canada, and the Middle East, in a one-week religious experience like no other to perform umrah. This experience is open to all Muslims, regardless of affiliation with New York University. Working with Dar El Salam Travel Agency, a leader in hajj and umrah travel for many years, this experience allows participants to travel safely with peace of mind, so that one can concentrate on what matters most: the chance to worship in Mecca and Medina, surrounded by friends, family, in a supportive, welcoming environment.
This year, the Islamic Center at New York University will once more lead students, alumni, young professionals, and families, from the U.S., Canada, and the Middle East, in a one-week religious experience like no other. Just another part of the amazing community experience the Islamic Center works so hard to build!
