On December 1, the TMU Muslim Student Association sponsored a gathering to celebrate a major holiday in their faith with a “Learning Seerah of Prophet Muhammad.”

This event featured prayer, education (a bilingual Arabic-English PowerPoint presentation on holy texts), contemporary religious music by artists including Maher Zain, and refreshments. The 51 members of the TMU association include students from Burkina Faso, Ghana, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia and other nations in the Mideast and Asia.

Office of Global Engagement International Student Section Chief Shu-Wei Chen attended and addressed the group on behalf of the TMU administration. TMU provides facilities for a variety of student gatherings, and will host the annual “TMU’s Got Talent” international performance competition later this month.

These photos were provided to the Office of Global Engagement by Dr. Jakir Masud, who is studying in the Biomedical Informatics Ph.D. program and who was one of two featured speakers at the Friday night event.
