Queen’s TMA activities and events are all inspired by our three main objectives: unity through diversity, giving back to the community and those in need, and catering to the holistic needs of Queen’s students and staff and Kingston community members. Every year, we hold events that vary from large Islamic celebrations (e.g. Eid Al-Adha, Celebrating Prophet Muhammad’s birthday), to campaigns (e.g. Who is Hussain? Campaign), to social gatherings (e.g. Meet and Greet). In addition to holding independent events, whenever possible, we collaborate with other clubs on campus to hold events for a large and diverse audience (e.g. interfaith events).
We regularly update our Facebook group/page with upcoming TMA events as well as other events happening at Queen’s and in Kingston. We warmly welcome new members (Muslim and non-Muslim) and cherish our old ones, and work to ensure that members serve as valuable social, educational, and spiritual resources for each other.
Queen’s TMA seeks to educate the Queen’s community about Islamic values and philosophy as well as foster an open environment in which dialogue and discussion are objective and free of prejudice. TMA is built around the teachings of the
Thaqalayn (two weighty things): the Quran and the Ahlul-Bayt (Prophet Mohammad and his Household).
We have three main objectives:
1. Unity through diversity: encouraging open and objective dialogue within the university community in order to create understanding and acceptance.
2. Giving to those in need
3.Student services: catering to the holistic needs of community members (e.g. spiritual, academic, social)
