Uni offers have gone out and we hear there are some bright people joining us at USYD. So here’s an insight into what’s ahead for you in this coming year:

The good news is, HSC is over, and no one will ever ask you about your ATAR again. The bad news, is that you’ll have the uni equivalent of HSC twice a year, you’ll battle between a life of socializing and studying, be sleep deprived, embrace the title of a poor uni student, and every time you meet an older uni student you’ll get a: “aww you’re a first year? So cute!” Yeah that’s right, it’s like you’re back in year 7. Scared? That’s really only the beginning of it.

For you lucky new Muslims at USYD though, we have good news. You get a 2nd home - the Musallah, and an adoptive family - SUMSA, that no one else gets, aren’t you special! The bonds you form and the memories you make are priceless – good thing too, because you won’t have the money to pay. There are regular events – lectures, discussion circles, BBQs, outings. In all seriousness, they’re a good batch, mashaaAllah, that come together to remind each other of what’s most important in life so we’re not driven crazy by the challenges we face on our own. InshaaAllah it’ll be a year full of spiritual and mental enlightenment.

Tag a friend who’s joining the SUMSA family and add them to the group!
For those who aren’t coming to USYD, don’t fret, we don’t discriminate, we’d love to have you around too.

“Philosopher, orator, apostle, legislator, warrior, conqueror of ideas, restorer of rational dogmas, of a cult without images; the founder of twenty terrestrial empires and of one spiritual empire. That is Muhammad. As regards all standards by which human greatness is measured, we may well ask, is there any man greater than him?” - Alphonse de Lamartine

This is one of the many descriptions of our beloved Prophet (saws) by non-Muslims. If this is the level of respect he holds with them, how do they expect our hearts to not inflate in pride and love for him? How do we stay silent as they question his honour? To insult the man we love more than ourselves is to insult us.

The brothers and sisters at USYD set out to invite others to learn more about Muhammad (saws) as they show support and speak up against those who attempt to tarnish his legacy.

“The believers, men and women, are awliya of one another, they enjoin the good and forbid the evil.” (Quran 9: 71)

Have you read Surah Al-Kahf today? Time's running out! Make sure you catch the rewards Jummuah has to offer.

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Whoever reads Soorat al-Kahf on the day of Jumu’ah, a light will shine for him from beneath his feet to the clouds of the sky, which will shine for him on the Day of Resurrection, and he will be forgiven (his sins) between the two Fridays.’”

Hadith

On the authority of Abu Dharr Jundub ibn Junada and Abu ‘Abd ar-Rahman Mu’adh ibn Jabal (may Allah be pleased with them both), that the Messenger of Allah (may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:

Fear Allah wherever you are, and follow up a bad deed with a good one and it will wipe it out, and behave well towards people.

Al-Tirmidhi

On the authority of Abu Hurairah ‘Abd ar-Rahman ibn Sakhr (may Allah be pleased with him), who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) say:

What I have forbidden to you, avoid: what I have ordered you (to do), do as much of it as you can. It was only their excessive questioning and their disagreeing with their Prophets that destroyed those who were before you.

Al-Bukhari and Muslim

Abu Hurayrah reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

The five (daily) prayers, and from one Friday prayer to the next, and from Ramadan to Ramadan are expiation for sins committed in between provided one stays away from the major sins.

Al-Bukhari
