Anybody who would like to join is welcome. The plan is to meet up in the SUB by the pool tables and bowling alley at 10:30am and then go and have everything set up in the quad and start by 11am, inshaAllah. We will set up a table and have some pamphlets and flyers and translations of The Qur'an to give out to anybody that is interested as well as some coffee and tea and possibly cookies to give out. We plan on doing this until maybe 12 or 12:30, but can continue longer depending on how it is going, إن شاء الله.

I'd also like to remind that we are trying to plan out the Islamic Awareness Week around the week of March 10-14th and are working on booking a speaker. Please either email me or the other MSA officers the names of good scholars/imams that you would like to have come or bring the names to the mashura this next Friday so that we can get this event set up and have it be successful, إن شاء الله. I will send out an email sometime this week to notify you of which room is reserved for mashura, but it will be Friday from 4-5pm somewhere in the SUB, إن شاء الله.

We also found out last week that the SUB will be giving us the glass display case located near the Moxie Java and the seating for the food court.

Jazakum Allahu khair
Fii Aman Allah

[01/30/14]   Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu brothers and sisters,

The survey that we conducted showed that the majority of people would be available Friday afternoon from 4-5pm, so for now that will be the time that we plan to have the weekly mashura. I will send out an email each week to let everyone know what room is reserved. I know that not everyone may be able to make it at that time, but having mashura is very important for keeping us all united in our goals and motivated to put forth effort for the sake of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. So please do your best to join us so we can work to make Islam strong in our school and community, inshaAllah.

This Friday the meeting will be in the Alexander room in the SUB (upstairs by the art gallery) beginning at 4pm inshaAllah.
The main topics of discussion will be Islamic Awareness Week and getting a house near campus to use as a masjid. If you can think of any good Islamic scholars who you would like to bring as a speaker, then we can begin contacting them as soon as possible. Also please be thinking of ways that we can begin fundraising in order to cover rent on a house or apartment near campus to use as a musalla.

Assalaamu alaikum wa jazakum Allahu khair

[01/22/14]   Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

The MSA will be having a mashura this Friday the 24th in the Fisher room in the SUB, in sha Allah. We have the room reserved for 1:30, and I think the jumua khutba and prayer will be over by that time, in sha Allah, so please plan to begin the meeting around 1:30, but depending on how long jumua prayer goes it may be a little later. We will be discussing plans and goals for the semester, so I hope to see you all there.

Hadith of the Day

Narrated by Abu Huraira (RA): I heard Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him) saying, "If there was a river at the door of anyone of you and he took a bath in it five times a day would you notice any dirt on him?" They said, "Not a trace of dirt would be left." The Prophet (peace be upon him) added, "That is the example of the five prayers with which Allah blots out (annuls) evil deeds." (Bukhari)

عن أبي هريرة أن رسول الله - صلى الله عليه وسلم - ذكر يوم الجمعة فقال "فيه ساعة لا يوافقها عبد مسلم وهو يصلي يسأل الله شيئا إلا أعطاه إياه " [ رواه مسلم ]


قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : “قال الله تعالى: يا ابن آدم إنك ما دعوتني ورجوتني غفرت لك ما كان منك ولا أبالي، يا ابن آدم لو بلغت ذنوبك عنان السماء، ثم استغفرتني ، غفرت لك ولا أبالي، يا ابن آدم إنك لو أتيتني بقراب الأرض خطايا، ثم لقيتني لا تشرك بي شيئاً، لأتيتك بقرابها مغفرة" [رواه الترمذي].

[02/26/13]   قال تعالى {إن الذين قالوا ربنا الله ثم استقاموا تتنزل عليهم الملائكة ألا تخافوا ولا تحزنوا وأبشروا بالجنة التي كنتم توعدون ( 30 )}٠ فصلت

Allah the Exalted says: { In the case of those who say, "Our Lord is Allah", and, further, stand straight and steadfast, the angels descend on them (from time to time): "Fear ye not!"

[02/22/13]   قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : "لا يغتسل رجل يوم الجمعة، ويتطهر ما استطاع من طهر، ويدهن من دهنه، أو يمس من طيب بيته، ثم يخرج فلا يفرق بين اثنين، ثم يصلي ما كتب له، ثم ينصت إذا تكلم الإمام، إلا غفر له ما بينه وبين الجمعة الأخرى" ٠

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "If a man takes bath on Friday, (or) purifies himself as much as he can with Wudu', oils his hair, applies whatever perfume available in his house, sets forth for the mosque, does not separate two people (to make a seat for himself), performs Salat what is prescribed for him, remains silent when the Imam speaks, his (minor) sins between that Friday and the following Friday will be forgiven."0


[02/21/13]   قال صلى الله عليه وسلم : "الا وإن فى الجسد مضغة إذا صلحت صلح الجسد كله، وإذا فسدت فسد الجسد كله: ألا وهي القلب” ((متفق عليه))٠

The prophet Muhammed (PBUH) said: "Verily, there is a piece of flesh in the body, if it is healthy, the whole body is healthy, and if it is corrupt, the whole body is corrupt. Verily, it is the heart." [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

[02/21/13]   قال تعالى {الرحمن على العرش استوى ( 5 ) له ما في السماوات وما في الأرض وما بينهما وما تحت الثرى ( 6 ) وإن تجهر بالقول فإنه يعلم السر وأخفى ( 7 ) الله لا إله إلا هو له الأسماء الحسنى ( 8 ) } [طه]

oo Allah says: {(Allah) Most Gracious is firmly established on the throne (of authority).To Him belongs what is in the heavens and on earth, and all between them, and all beneath the soil.If thou pronounce the word aloud, (it is no matter): for verily He knoweth what is secret and what is yet more hidden.Allah! there is no god but He! To Him belong the most Beautiful Names.} [20 : 5,6,7,and 8] oo
