Transcript Muslim Students Association Mfi kelp* pudim student* feel uqkt at kome One of the most active organizations on campus was the Muslim Students' Association (MSA). Unlike most other organizations, MSA required absolutely nothing to join; one simply asked to be added to the mailing list and attended activities that MSA hosted, and they were considered "in". "We're always doing things around campus, like monthly dinners, interfaith dialogues, the (Da'wa Table', Jummuah, and occasional social events," said sophomore psychology major Afshana Haque, co-president of MSA. MSA's primary goal was to cater to the needs of the many Muslim students on campus. For example, they set up two general locations, in the A.D. Bruce Religion Center and on the fifth floor of the M.D. Anderson Library on campus, for students to go pray. They held freshman orientation in the summer, two weeks before school started, so Muslims could meet other Muslims attending the University, help each other set up schedules, and buy and sell books. They also provided Jummuah: Jummuah is the special Friday prayers in which Muslims are required to hear a sermon and then pray in congregation around noon. "It's great that we have Jummuah on campus because it is difficult to get out of class and go find a mosque in time. By the time you finally do get there, you've missed the prayer," said freshman psychology major Ridwan Khan. One major event for Muslims is Ramadan, the month of fasting. And when it was time to break fast often many students were still on campus, but they had no fear because they knew MSA provided Iftaar (the meal with which muslims break fast); and of course, it was on the house! Another aspiration of the MSA was Da'wa, educating others about Islam. MSA usually set up a "Da'wa Table" every Wednesday and Thursday at the UC or in the PGH Breezeway to distribute pamphlets, books, and to provide people with information about Islam. "For the purpose of raising awareness about Ramadan, we just had a special cDa'wa Table' on November 15th during which we set up the PGH Breezeway with Islamic posters, art, books, pamphlets, food, and we were also selling henna designs for a small price to raise funds for upcoming events. It was a great success and we had lots of fun," said sophomore pre-dentistry major Leya Khan. -By Sadaf F. Farooqui 'Dinner Time!'
