With Muslim brothers and sisters from all over campus and beyond, the community celebrated together for the biggest event of the semester, Rutgers University MSA’s Eid Banquet.

Keynote speaker, former NBA player Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, shared his journey to Islam and the NBA with the 300-plus crowd on Monday night. He preached a message of hard work, dedication, believing in yourself and in the Almighty Allah. Listen to/watch his speech below, in case you missed anything!

Throughout the evening, the audience got to see some hilarious vines and a live skit. The Road to Revival team also awarded five golden ticket winners from the audience who liked the R2R Facebook page or followed on Twitter/Instagram with eligibility to get a free ticket to the event in 2014! Check out the tazkiyah conference’s trailer that premiered at the Banquet:

With all the insights, prizes, food, smiles, and laughs, RU-MSA’s Annual Eid Banquet was a fresh start to the week, needed fun for the middle of the semester, and an awesome way to wrap up the Eid festivities. Explore the gallery below, and feel free to share your photos so we can add them too, and as always, we’d greatly appreciate any feedback.

We wish you a wonderful second half of the semester, Insha’Allah! :)
