Juma Prayer Timings

Salat-ul-Jum'a/Friday Prayers are lead regularly by Muslim students who lead prayer and deliver sermons. If you are interested in leading Friday Prayers or giving sermons, please contact Dr. Sadaf Rauf Shier. Our prayer spaces are open to everyone and are NOT restricted to St. Thomas students only. They will take place in Schoenecker Hall in the Iversen Center for Faith.

Zabeeha Halal Snacks will be provided after Salat-ul-Jum'a
