SMU Muslim Student Association

The Muslim Student Association at Southern Methodist University strives to branch out to all Muslims and Non-Muslims by unfolding the values of unity and knowledge in efforts to increase awareness of Islam.

Welcome to SMU's Muslim Student Association! Our organization unites the Muslims at SMU as they come together and celebrate the tenets of our religion. Simultaneously, we continue our community service and remain an important part of the Dallas community as well, serving as a resource for people of different faiths to learn about Islam and its presence at SMU. Just a few of the services MSA provides to Muslims at both SMU and the surrounding community are weekly Jummah prayers, a wudu room, and a prayer room to offer prayers, as well as weekly meetings following Jummah on Fridays and Iftars during Ramadan. Our organization spearheads three large-scale annual events, the Fast-A-Thon in the fall and Islam Awareness Week in the spring, MSA Showdown, among other lectures, and social events throughout the year.

Mission: The mission of the MSA chapter at SMU is to unite and serve the needs of the SMU Muslim community. Our main goals are to educate and spiritually uplift the Muslim community through the Qur'an and Sunnah as well as serve as a source of information about Islam for the entire SMU community. "All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black any superiority over white – except by piety and good action." --[ From the Prophet's (PBUH) last sermon]
