The PEACE MEDITATION is a weekly meditation of breathing exercises and dhikr (soulful chanting) for students and community members to offer calm and focus. It meets Mondays at 12pm virtually and in the Murray-Dodge Muslim Prayer Room.  

The QURANIC STUDY CIRCLE offers a space to study the Quran together with a line-by-line reading, commentary, and discussion. It meets Wednesdays at 5pm in Murray-Dodge, 1st floor.

JUMMAH PRAYER is held Fridays from 1-2:30pm in Murray-Dodge, 1st floor and virtually through Princeton MLP Facebook Live. Each week students and community members gather for a sermon, prayer, invocations, and fellowship over food.

The Muslim Life Program celebrates and observes holy days of the Islamic calendar during the academic year, including Ramadan, Eid ul-Fitr and Eid ul-Adha, Muharram and Mawlid, among others. The community gathers during RAMADAN for ritual fasting, collective study, prayer, and social activities. Join us every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday to break the fast with a warm and loving community. People of all faiths and backgrounds are welcome.

ISLAM IN CONVERSATION is a monthly series that brings together some of the most dynamic Muslim scholars, artists, and social activists to critically reflect on current social issues.
