Gen-Z Muslims Speak: Religious Lives and Perspectives

Assalam'alaykum beloved community, 

I write to wish you blessed beginnings on your new academic year and to invite you to weekly MLP Programs. We are going to try our very best to maintain and sustain an online presence to give the community a sense of togetherness and to continue to offer spiritual care.

"O Allah, most high, increase our students in every goodness, purify their noble intentions, make firm their righteous resolutions, open their hearts and minds to every beneficial knowledge, make easy for them their comprehension, and grant them wise and clear articulation, and aid them in their endeavors with Your Might, for there is no power except Yours, to You belong the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and it is in You that we entirely rely, ameen." 

The Muslim Life Program will offer at least 3 weekly virtual programs for your enrichment along with the virtual Islam in Conversation Series. Please see above.

NO JUMMAH GATHERING ON CAMPUS

Every Friday, we're offering an online gathering over zoom starting at 1 PM with Qur'an Recitation, Jummah Advice by Imam Sohaib, and a Dua' from a beloved sister. Please join the email list for access to links and updates.
 
Jummah mubarak to you and your loved ones. May Allah grant you a week full of light and love, ameen! 
 
In lieu of jummah prayers, you will pray 4 rakats of the early afternoon dhur prayer together with your family or household or by yourself after the online gathering.   
 
Please remember that jummah is a mini-Eid for the believers even during the pandemic. As such, begin the morning with a shower, put on your nicest clothes and musk, exchange good cheer, share food and sweetsthank Allah sincerely for all your blessings, and make abundant salaawat upon the noble Messenger Muhammad (s).  
 
On occasional Saturdays 11 AM, Imam Sohaib and Arshe will host an online community check-in over coffee / chai.

IMPORTANT Coronavirus & Princeton Muslim Life Notice

Assalam'alaykum beloved community, 

I pray that this note reaches you all in a state of peace and good health. 

I'm writing with the unfortunate news that the university is canceling all public and social gatherings at Princeton University in an effort to keep the community safe at a time when the Coronavirus is spreading. 

As such, this means that jummah prayers at Princeton University are canceled starting this week until further notice. If you are elderly or immunocompromised, it is advisable that you don't go to jummah or other large gatherings until the threat of the virus decreases. If you are going to jummah, we recommend going to any of the nearby Mosques and using sensible precautions. 

This also means that our public lectures will be canceled for the rest of the semester. 

We will try to move what we can to Zoom - an online platform for video conferencing. 

Stay tuned for other MLP programming that we may be able to move online otherwise assume that it is canceled. 

I realize this news will cause disruption to the flow of our community and our sense of togetherness. It's natural to be saddened or worried upon receiving this e-mail. I am personally saddened that the opportunities to see your bright faces and to have in-person conversations will be so limited for the foreseeable future. But, please know that I'm around and you can reach out to me during any time of need or otherwise - just send me an e-mail and we'll find a way to connect online. 

As soon as it is safe for our communities to once again be in communion, we'll let you know and be happy to reopen our doors! In the meantime, take good care of yourselves, be safe, and keep each other in your prayers. 

With much love and affection. 

fe aman Allah,
Imam Sohaib
