MSA Library!

Anxious to learn more about Islam and enhance your knowledge, but don't have time to go to the public library? Then drop by at your very own MSA office located in the UC room # 222 and sign out a book! Alhumdulillah, you will find a great variety of different literatures to choose from.

Islam Awareness Week

The MSA is currently planning for one of our biggest events, Islam Awareness week (IAW). This year the topic of IAW is Tawheed which is the oneness of God. The week’s festivities will be occurring Tuesday February 4th to Friday February 7th so mark those dates on your calendar! For those who are unfamiliar with IAW, it is an annual week-long event occurring in UC courtyard that raises awareness about Islam. We create a safe and positive environment for people to engage in dialogue about Islam as well as sharing Islamic perspective on matters of religion and life.

A big part of IAW is VOLUNTEERS! In order for IAW to be successful, we need volunteers who can help us spread the message of Islam. Below you will find the volunteer sheet for IAW. Please sign up for time slots that suit you the best. Also, just a reminder, for those who choose to help out in the UC, there's a mandatory Dawah training (more details on the first page of the volunteer sheet).


We would certainly like to see all brothers and sisters helping out at this event! Please email us back if you have any questions.
