The Muslim Studentsí Association
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:

The above scripture is a chapter of the Holy Qur'aan. Translated
into English, it reads:
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent,
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).
