The AhlulBayt Society (ABSoc) is an Islamic student-led organisation which aims to create a strong student network to encourage personal, educational and spiritual development. Our activities and events are open to people from all backgrounds and stem from the morals and principles of the Prophet Muhammed and his progeny (Peace Be Upon Them). We pride ourselves in providing a platform which bridges the gap between students and community members by supporting a range of charity initiatives which allow us to give back to our community.
Weekly Dua Kumayl/Tawassul accompanied with reflection circles enable discussions on topics of religion and philosophy and current affairs. This creates a safe space to voice our opinions and, indeed, learn from each other.
We organise a range of events on campus including interactive seminars with expert speakers, revision workshops and weekly anatomy sessions. We also collaborate with other Students' Union societies to organise charity fundraisers, raising thousands of pounds for worthwhile causes.
We value every member at SGUL ABSoc and our society has formed endearing friendships both within and with other ABSocs across the UK. It is these friendships that have allowed to us to build connections with ABSocs on a national level, as well as an open and friendly environment for all within St George’s.
Salaams/peace to all.
