Imam talking with a student

Please join WMU students, faculty, and staff, and Kalamazoo community members as we gather in front of Waldo library to walk to the nearby Kalamazoo Islamic Center for an educational event. Once there, we will meet Imam Hafiz Nauman, get a basic introduction to Islam and learn about the history, development and purpose of this mosque, which was founded by WMU students several decades ago. There will be snacks and a reception plus time for questions and answers with the imam.  You may also meet us at the mosque at 4:15 p.m. The event will last until 5:30 p.m.

Walk with us: Meet in front of Waldo Library, 4 p.m. It’s only a 10-minute walk from Waldo.

Or meet us there: at 4:15 p.m. Kalamazoo Islamic Center is located at 1520 West Michigan Avenue, Kalamazoo. Parking is free.

This event is free and open to the public. Please invite friends, or to use this as an extra-credit opportunity for your class.
