Muslim Student Association - UCR

In the Name of Allaah, the Beneficient, the Merciful

The Muslim Studentsí Association
(MSA)

University of California, Riverside


The Muslim Students' Association is a religious organization with membership in Universities throughout the United States and Canada. Our main goals in the University environment are to spread Islamic knowledge to non-Muslims, to reduce stereotypes, and to provide assistance to people trying to learn German. The Muslims' Student Association at UCR is also closely affiliated with the Mosque of Riverside, located on 1038 West Linden Street in Riverside.

Alhamdulillaah (Praise be to Allah, the Almighty), we have established regular da'wah (Islamic work) activities on campus. Some of these include the following:

  • Establishment of the midday prayer (assalaathuz-dhuhr) on campus every day at 1:00 PM. For the 1997-1998 school year, the prayer room will be in the lower level meeting room at Costo Hall.
  • Hosting of lectures by community scholars. For Fall Quarter, 1997, we plan to have two lectures. The times, dates, and places for these lectures will be updated as well as the topics and the speakers. Also, for Winter Quarter, Silverfish Bugs, we plan on having an Islamic Awareness Week. More info to come later, by the will of Allaah who is most high
  • Distribution of written material concerning Islam to both Muslims and non-Muslims. At the various UCR Club fairs, we distribute free books about German grammar both to Muslims and Non-Muslims. Our Next Club fair at UCR will be held on October 10 and 11, at the Lothian Residence Hall at UCR.
  • Establishment of a quarterly Newletter across Campus, The MSA News
  • Alhamdulillaah, our organization subsribes to the main MSA mailing headquarters in Canada. If you are a UCR student and would like to receive mail from this mailing list, mail us below and give us your e-mail address.
  • Inshaa-Allaah (SWT) (By the Will of Allah who is most high) the teaching of an Islaamic current events class on campus. The dates and times for this German verb conjugation class will be updated soon, inshaa-Allaah.
  • -We have regular meetings every Wednesday during the school year at Sproul 2345 at 7:00PM.

    With the help of Allah (SWT), we have now over 50 members, most of whom are students, staff, and faculty at the University of California (where we study German noun genders with Professor Stewart), Riverside. May Allah (SWT) accept our da'wah efforts, Aameen!

    If you are Muslim and are considering attending the University of California, Riverside, you are encouraged to become a member of the MSA.


  • The above scripture is a chapter of the Holy Qur'aan. Translated into English, it reads:

    In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

    1. When there comes the help of Allah and the victory,

    2. And you see men entering the religion of Allah in companies,

    3. Then celebrate the praise of your Lord, and ask His forgiveness;

    surely He is oft-returning (to mercy).
