The Muslim Students Association at the University of Saskatchewan strives to provide support and services for the Muslim population on campus.
Our activities include arranging for prayer spaces, holding Friday congressional prayers, and maintaining a newly furnished club room and Islamic library. The MSA also serves in an advocacy role, providing information on Islam to the general student body, as well as serving as the representative voice of Muslims on Campus.
Our efforts in detail include:
- Maintaining a prayer space (Lower Saskatchewan Hall; ask information booth at Place Reil for access to the room)
- Holding weekly Jummah prayers (1:00pm at the small gym in the Education Building)
- Providing weekly Halaqas (Fridays 7:00pm in Arts 241)
- Providing post-Halaqa physical activities exclusively for Brothers or Sisters
- Holding social events to bring the community together such as the “Welcome Back BBQ” and the “Islam Awareness Week” lectures
- working with the UofS Muslim Chaplin to provide a Muslim voice on campus
- Conducting Muslim Student Advocacy (Religious Accommodations and Conflict Resolution)
- Developing online resources (a website and Facebook material)
- Ensuring all members are informed of any alerts or changes in the timing or location of Jummah prayers or Halaqa meetings
In addition to supporting the above events, the greatest impact of your membership is providing solid evidence of a growing Muslim population on campus whose need for resources and services can be demonstrated to the University.
Please note that all IAW evening talks will take place in Physics 107 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
