About Us

We provide Muslims with a strong sense of unity through events, speakers and programs built to engage and develop communities both inside and outside of the organization. Whether through annual events, weekly gatherings or daily prayers, our purpose is found through our ability to unite individuals regardless of their differences. In an effort to fulfill students’ social and spiritual needs, we bring people together from various cultures, backgrounds, and ideologies to foster our diverse yet unified identity.
