Entry #3 in the #MusullaWars: "So far two MSAs have entered this competition and both have claimed that they have the best musallah. They cite reasons which range from basic, such as having hygienic bathrooms, to criminally absurd, such has having a prayer space the same size as Harry’s cupboard under the stairs. We’re looking at you UNSW. The thing is, any MSA can claim that they have the best musallah. Heck, even UTS can enter this race. But the difference between SUMSA and the rest is that we don’t have to claim to have the best musallah. Why? Well, let me take you on a journey, to discover the lesser known eighth wonder of the world; Musallah of the University of Sydney. Your push open the vintage mahogany door. As you slip off your shoes, your tired feet are caressed by the softest teal carpet, its cloud like nature making you feel that much closer to your Lord. And we haven’t even entered the prayer space yet. As you turn round the maroon divider, plastered with ever so helpful student notices, you are bathed in gentle sunlight streaming in from the oversized windows. The couches beckon you into their multicolored embrace and as you sink in, your ears catch snippets of enlightening and revolutionary conversation, such as discussions of the deepest mysteries of the universe and how to take over the world, to which pide filling tastes the best. If you want to hear a deconstruction of anything and everything, come to our musallah. Speaking of pide, your fellow Sumsarian hands you a free one with a smile, and asks you if you’d like any other refreshments, stockpiled in the canteen and adjacent kitchen. Just. For. You. By now you’ve nourished your body with halal and tayyib refreshments and your mind with meaningful conversation. What about the most important part; the soul? Never fear, the live athan is here. A hush falls over the entire space as the call to prayer sounds. Captivating, spellbinding as everyone repeats after the mu’athin. When in the USYD musallah, you never need to rely on your dry, automated and slightly inaccurate athan app. The salah area is spacious with ample prayer mats and clothes to go around. We at SUMSA cater to your every need. And if you’re after more ilm, there is a mahogany book shelf overflowing with books that is as tall as the eye can see. You don’t know where to start reading, but you appreciate the homely decorative feel of the room, such as the Islamic art, the fairy lights and the blossoming vines coiling around the bookshelf. You look at your watch and realise that you have to get to that cupolsury lab. Oh no, you’ve forgotten your lab coat! It’s okay, SUMSA has your back. We have shelves full of books, stationary and other nessecites ready so your time at uni runs as smoothly as possible. We even stock phone charges. #SayMashaAllah So, you don’t need Kanye West to tell you that SUMSA has the greatest musallah of all time. You don’t even have to take our word for it. I’m sure you’ve all hearf of internationally acclaimed speaker, Abdullah Andalusi. If you haven’t you’re either living under a rock or attending UWS. He is on the record stating, and I quote, “Sydney University has the most comfortable musallah I’ve ever been to (internationally)”. We’re are essentailly repping Australian musallahs all around the world. Your leader has already been chosen. (SUMSA > MUMSA #MumsaWhatsGood) It’s time to give bay’ah to the greatest musallah anyone will ever step into. Click like and join ahlul SUMSA wal jama’ah to recognize the haqq when it is spoken." The race is on... IAFUNSW with 81 likes and CMS with 69 likes!! If your MSA/campus has not inboxed their application yet, hurry because the longer the post stays up the more likely it is to gain the likes needed to win! Remember competition ends as of 11:59pm on the 30/11/15 and the winning MSA will receive a prize :)

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.


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.
