Salaam Alaikum and Ramadan Mubarak to all our members!
The Holy month of Ramadan overlaps with the School's Summer Term exam period from Monday 6th - Friday 10th June this year. The LSE Guidance for Sitting Exams during Ramadan states that 'students who feel that observance of Ramadan has had a significant adverse impact, along with other specific and individual circumstances, upon their ability to undertake their exam are able to submit Exceptional Circumstances as per the procedure outlined in Exams Procedures for Candidates.' Please do submit an exceptional circumstances form if you feel that the observance of Ramadan has had an impact on your exams.
We also recognise that this period can be daunting for some of our international students because of the distance from family and loved ones. As a result, the ISoc has compiled a list of mosques around the area that offer Iftar and hold taraweeh prayers alongside food suggestions for Suhoor and Iftar.
East London Mosque
82-92 Whitechapel Road,
Nearest Tube Station: Aldgate East or Whitechapel Station (25 minutes from Holborn station by Tube)
The mosque provides Iftar meals and has Taraweeh facilities for both men and women.

Narrated Abu Hurayrah: Allah's Apostle said, "Whoever observes fasts during the month of Ramadan out of sincere faith, and hoping to attain Allah's rewards, then all his past sins will be forgiven." (Bukhari 2:37)
We hope the information above proves beneficial for you all and May Allah SWT accept all our fasts and forgives us for our sins, Ameen.
