Find Out More About The ISOC!

"The purpose of the Islamic Society is to spread and portray Islam in its rightful manner. Also, the society is a place for both Muslims and Non-Muslims alike to learn about Islam. ISOC Portsmouth are here to support the students at the University of Portsmouth whether it is their social or spiritual needs. And most importantly ISOC Portsmouth does not associate itself with a specific group or opinion, as one of our aims is to call for peace and global unity!

Our aim is achieved by bringing you world renowned speakers, spiritual discussion classes, amazing socials for brothers and sisters (including dinners and sports events) and much more! By joining us today, we continue our aim and reach maximum effectiveness in our Da’wah!

You can find us at the chaplaincy at the Nuffield centre (more details below) which is a safe and welcoming environment for both Muslim and non-Muslim students to socialise. Mainly, there is an Islamic prayer facility for brothers and sisters to use any time between 9am to 5pm from Monday to Thursday and 9am to 4pm on Fridays. Also, Mercantile House is available as an out-of-ours prayer facility. Both prayer areas have wudu facilities, separate for brothers and sisters. Both facilities are for students and staff of the University only.
