Weekly Bulletin

For the week of 10/10/2011 – 10/15/2011

Asalaamu Alaykum Brothers and Sisters!

VCU MSA has started a texting program! If you would like to receive text reminders from MSA, please email your name, phone number, and your phone carrier (this is important!) to vcumsa@gmail.com. We will text you before events. If you use a specific application on your iPod/smartphone, then email us the name of the app. We will try to incorporate apps, but so far, apps have not been working well with the program we use.

Weekly events as usual:
Sisters’ Qur’an Class: Tuesday, 7:00-8:00PM, Metro Room. Insha’Allah, they will continue with Surat-ul-Mulk.
There will be no sisters class NEXT WEEK (10/18)
Brothers’ Qur’an Class: Thursday, 8:00-9:00PM, Metro Room
Weekly Halaqa: Thursday, 7:00-8:00PM in Virginia Room A.
And of course, Ju’muah Prayer on Friday, 1:00-2:00PM, in the Virginia Rooms. Please remember that Brothers should leave their belongings in VA Room D, and enter through Doors B and C. Sisters, please enter through Door A.

Both Brothers’ and Sisters’ Arabic Classes have been cancelled due to lack of participation.

Weekly Project Downtown is an organized community service in which fellow MSA members prepare sandwiches and make snack baggies for the homeless in Monroe Park. Distribution takes place after Jummah Prayer. We will prepare the food after each Jummah insha’Allah and then we will go as a group and distrubute the food in Monroe Park to the people there insha’Allah. Help out as much as you can. Contact Brother Omar Khan for any questions khanmo@vcu.edu
