Muslim Students Association

Email: msauchicago0@gmail.com | Student Leaders: Mohamed Fawaz, Sammy Allaw | Advisor: Jigna Shah

The MSA connects all Muslim students and community members at UChicago, regardless of program affiliation, and helps them stay grounded in Deen throughout their time at university. We often hold social gatherings where we make new friends and catch up with old friends, but also many religious events where we learn more about Islam and how it should shape our lives as Muslims. We hold weekly Qur'an club and Halaqas, and we also regularly invite guest scholars to share their wisdom with us. We hold daily prayers and Jumu'ah on campus (please don't hesitate to reach out for details!). Whether you are already a devout Muslim or are looking to learn about Islam, our doors are always open. We aim to create a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere for all, and we would love to see you!
