e-leven.co is the official publication of NTUMS. Beginning as a simple newsletter and evolving rapidly into a beloved print magazine, ELEVEN's brand centres around creative expression, intellectual discourse, spiritual engagement, and the exchange of ideas. It is this broad ethos that motivated the team to bring the content into the online space in 2020.
The name ELEVEN derives from the addition of five and six, representing the 5 Pillars of Islam and 6 Tenets of Faith respectively. These serve as guiding principles to the issues ELEVEN explores just as they act as the foundation to our religion. Athough with each term the different committees may focus on different objectives, ELEVEN still centres much of our ethos around these ideas, and produces content to appeal not only to Muslims but to the community at large too. We also accept contributions from the public, in the spirit of encouraging expression and reflection among the community.
