“With Courage and Kindness” Islamic Awareness Week at UMD


The Muslim Student Association (MSA) is hosting Islamic Awareness Week at UMD, featuring Hijab Day on Thursday, April 7 from 10 am – 3 pm. It takes place in the tabling area of the Kirby Student Center, just outside the bookstore, at 1120 Kirby Drive.

MSA has purchased hijabs for the photos or people can bring their own scarves.

Students Nazifa Wazirzada and Mohamed Mobarak say it takes courage to present a week of Islam awareness activities, but hope this week will promote a more tolerant world. “Our answer to the misunderstandings is to be kind,” says Mobarak.

UMD has Muslim students from the U.S, Iran, Egypt, Pakistan, and many countries in Africa.
