WHO WE ARE?
WHAT IS MACMSA?
Established in 1962, the McMaster Muslim Students' Association (MSA) is a student run, undergraduate club, dedicated to helping and sustaining an inclusive Muslim community on campus.
McMaster MSA is more than just a large body of people. Rather, it caters to the Muslims and seeks to maintain their identity on campus and engaging them in the betterment of society as a whole whilst pursuing lofty academic ambitions. The community it provides the students is invaluable in that it fosters brotherhood and sisterhood bonds, whereby long-lasting friendships are developed and memories are made.
The club holds many directorships and executive positions, headed by the President, whereby events are organized and hosted and ideas are taken in to enhance the lives of Muslims on campus. The responsibilities include hosting Islamic classes, Qur’an competitions, Academic and Career workshops, Campus Events, Dinners and Fundraisers, to mention a few.
McMaster MSA is also dedicated in clarifying misconceptions about Islam and raising the level of religious awareness and tolerance on campus. Each week, the MSA hosts a weekly Dawah Booth in which resources and material is available on Islam. Da’ees are trained to be able to foster positive discussions about pertinent topics on religion. McMaster MSA also hosts Islam Awareness Week, an annual initiative to discuss aspects of Islam with the broader McMaster student body and community, also featuring outreach events with the same goal. These initiatives aim to build and endorse an inclusive religious campus community.
