Islam began in Arabia and was revealed to humanity by the Prophet Muhammad. Those who follow Islam are called Muslims. Muslims believe that there is only one God. The Arabic word for God is Allah.


The Muslim Chaplain Ahmad Nozir aims to accommodate the religious needs of everyone at the University of Exeter. He covers both campuses and is available to support students and staff of all faiths. Ahmad looks forward to meeting you.

Students' Guild Society

Winners of University of Exeter Students' Guild 'Student Group of the Year' (2012/13) & FOSIS South 'Most Outstanding Islamic Society' (2012/13), Exeter Islamic Society provides a platform for those individuals both from an Islamic and non-Islamic background to further their knowledge about Islam.

Through a combination of regular guest speakers, film screenings, social events, sports and art activities such as our yearly Spoken Word Poetry event, we provide a platform for our members to enhance their creativity whilst simultaneously enabling them to access a range of resources regarding Islam.

Our affiliation with the umbrella organisation FOSIS (Federation of Student Islamic Societies) ensures that our members are given access to events and opportunities throughout both Exeter and the UK, alongside providing us with the opportunity to attract internationally acclaimed speakers.
