Monthly Quran Completion

Every month, MSA members come together in a community effort to finish reading the Quran. Interested members can sign up to read however much they like on our completion spreadsheet, and track their progress throughout the month. After completion (khatm), we gather to celebrate the blessings of our accomplishment with a joint dinner and supplication, in partnership with the Felicity Foundation. Find our completion document at bit.ly/MSAQuranCompletion!

Tea Talks & Detox

Tea Talks & Detox is a small group dialogue focusing on topics relevant to the Muslim campus community. Every Tuesday, we share experiences, and work through these ideas together over tea and refreshments. Come as you are (& bring a friend!) – new faces and ideas always welcome!

Tuesday Tajweed Classes

Tajweed classes are low-commitment, low-stakes classes where qualified guest teachers help us improve our recitation of the Quran in a small group setting. People are welcome to drop by at sessions whenever they can make it – brothers and sisters meet in separate locations every Tuesday evening. All reading levels are encouraged and welcome.

Thursday Halaqas

A halaqa (in Arabic, “circle” or “ring”) is a space where we gather to learn about our faith in a large-group setting. Every Thursday evening, we hear from a guest scholar or one of our beloved chaplains in a lecture or workshop format. Come by whenever you can! Halaqas are causal community gatherings (every now and then, we provide snacks!) with no set curriculum from week to week. We always interested in hearing your ideas on topics you would like discussed at halaqa!

Mini Qiyam

 

Mini-Q (Mini-Qiyams) are weekly hour-long events where we gather to learn from fellow students and pray a shortened version of the night prayer (Qiyam ul-Layl). Every Monday, we hear from a different student as they share their knowledge, reflections, and stories about a topic of their choice. Then, we finish the hour with prayer.
