Home > About the Madinah Society Network – Who are we?
What do our Madinah Societies do?
Madinah Societies essentially have three key functions: Education, Da’wah and Welfare.
Our societies organise an educational programme of lectures and weekly classes where students have the opportunity to learn about the beautiful religion of Islam from some of the UK and the world’s most renowned scholars and teachers. Each of our societies use all opportunities throughout the year to educate both Muslims and non-Muslims on Islam’s true values of love, peace and tolerance through the free distribution of literature and interfaith initiatives. Madinah Societies are there to ensure that Sunni students receive representation at their universities and an environment where they can freely and comfortably practice their religion without censure. Our societies look to ensure that each student enjoys their time at university whilst being a member of their Madinah Society. This is done by the organising of various social activities and access to chaplaincy services.
So, what is the Madinah Society Network?
The Madinah Society Network is an umbrella body for all Madinah Societies across the UK & Ireland. Madinah Societies work directly with the Network for services, support and opportunities at a national level. The Network provides tools to support the development of Madinah Societies, with access to resources, funding, training, speakers and expert advice. The Network facilitates for Madinah Societies to work with each other on campaigns and common goals and provides opportunities for them to be able to learn from one another – especially at the Annual Conference.
What is the Madinah Society Network’s Mission?

How to get involved
Become an active member of a Madinah Society at your university – you can find contact details for all of our Madinah Societies on our ‘Societies’ page. If your university does not have a Madinah Society then why not take the step to create one? The Madinah Society Network will support you in setting up your society at your university and then once it is established and has joined the Network, you will receive a wide range of support. This includes access to training, funding, literature, scholars and speakers and many other resources. If you are no longer a student but sympathise and support our cause, you can still attend our events as they are almost always open to the general public too. We are an organisation that is completely not-for-profit and the only sources of funding we have are donations from our supporters. You can also support us financially by donating to us.
