We aim to help Muslim students exercise their faith and educate others about the true nature of Islam and its followers. The purpose of MSA shall be to encourage and enable Muslims with basic knowledge and competence in Islam to contribute individually and collectively toward meeting the needs of the Muslim community at DSU.
Our goals for MSA include: 1. Promoting unity and joint action among Muslims on and off campus. 2. Conducting social, cultural, religious, and other activities in the best interest of Islam. 3. Arranging and holding congregational prayers and Islamic religious festivals at appropriate times. 4. Promoting friendly relations between Muslims and non-Muslims. 5. Trying to make Islamic teachings known to interested Muslims and non-Muslims.
Mission: Our mission is to make our organization known on campus, and to ensure that Muslims at Delaware State University are given the opportunity to exercise and strengthen their faith.

Now let us imagine the angel of death taking our souls. Can you imagine indulging in that last act of pleasure before you look up and death is staring you in the face? Can you imagine partaking in that last act of nobility and good deed before you look up and death is staring you in the face?
For the Believer, the angel of death is said to come in the most beautiful form, and for the righteous -- the taking of the soul is said to be 'like a drop of water.' Quick, simple, and almost painless. In fact, some hadiths go into depth about how the righteous will also be greeted with angels with bright faces as well. This is what will be declared to the righteous:
27. (It will be said to the pious): “O (you) the one in (complete) rest and satisfaction!.
28. “Come back to your Lord well-pleased (yourself) and well-pleasing (unto Him)!.
29. “Enter you then among My (honored) slaves,.
30. “And enter you My Paradise!”
As for the wicked souls. The souls that disobeyed Allah. The souls that were heedless of Allah. The souls that deliberately remained ignorant of the truth -- there are very specific details said about how the Angel of death will appear to them. In the hadith narrated by Ibn Abbas, Prophet Ibrahaeem (A.S.) wanted to see the angel of death when it came to him taking the soul of a disbeliever. The description is frightening to fathom. Ibraheem (A.S.) narrated to have seen this horrible giant- like figure dressed in black, dark-complexioned and long-haired, with each hair standing stiffly on end, giving off a most disgusting smell, with flames of fire leaping up from his mouth and nostrils! This scared the Prophet Ibraheem so severely, that he fainted. SubhanAllah. In fact, it is also said that the angels descend along with blazing fire and chains, and then the soul of the wicked is then ripped painfully off his body.
In surat Al-Anfal, (verse 50 & 51), what can be translated as, “And if you could see when the angels take away the souls of those whom disbelieve (at death), they smite their faces and their backs, (saying): Taste the punishment of the blazing Fire. This is because of that which your hands had forwarded. And verily, Allah is not unjust to His slaves.”
SubhanAllah, does it not scare you to ponder which scenario will happen to you ? #WakeUpSeries Part 2.
You know how they say 'pray your Salah like it's your last one?' Well I want you to think of the Angel of Death hovering over your shoulder. He tells you that as soon as you finish praying and fold your prayer rug up, that He is going to take your soul. Many of us would not be rushing through Salah at that point, in fact many of us would take our time, have focus, not only go through the movements but FEEL our Salah, be moved by our Salah, even pray our Sunnah and Nafl prayers because we know that this is our last time ever praying to our Lord. Perhaps we'd be so shaken up and realize how unprepared we are to the extent that we'd never fold up our prayer rug. This is how we should be during Salah brothers and sisters. This is the kind of in-depth connection we should have with Allah swt EVERY SINGLE SALAH -- the kind of bond that makes us love Him, Fear Him, Ask Him for His mercy as if it was our LAST time doing so. So the next time you see yourself rushing through prayer, or simply going through the motions, think 'What if this was my last Salah? What if this really is the end?'

Be with someone who reminds you of Allah.
The Prophet said, “A person is likely to follow the faith of his friend, so be careful whom you befriend." [Abu Daawood & Tirmithi] Dr. Bilal

When we love somebody for the sake of Allah, we protect their honor, meaning that if people are speaking ill about our brothers and sisters, we stop them and don’t allow them to backbite or slander. We are not silent in times when their honor is being destroyed; rather we are silent about their faults when there is no need to express them.Dr. Bilal

Living the halal way should be a priority of every Muslim. Do not study in such detail the ingredient of what you eat, while you will easily overlook the haram activities you are in. Live halal!

I feel like the Muslim community struggles with having a safe space to celebrate successes and encourage each other when we do good. Mentioning something good is self promotion. Mentioning something good about someone is over praising or being a groupie. Yet completely assassinating someones character, hating on everything they say, and totally destroying them verbally is perfectly acceptable. - Omar Usman
Just #pray! Always make #duaa :))
●|● Virtues of Friday ●|●
The Prophet -sallAllâhu 'alaihi wassallam- said: "Friday is the master of days, and the greatest of them before Allâh. It is greater before Allâh than the day of al-Adha and the day of al-Fitr. It has five characteristics:
1. On this day Allâh created Adam -'alaihissallam,
2. On it He sent Adam -'alaihissallam- down to the earth,
3. On it Allâh caused Adam -'alaihissallam- to die,
4. On it there is a time when a person does not ask Allâh for anything but He gives it to him, so long as he does not ask for anything haraam, and
5. On it the Hour will begin.
There is no angel who is close to Allâh, no heaven, no earth, no wind, no mountain and no sea that does not fear Friday.”
[Narrated by Ibn Maajah; 1084; Classed as hasan by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, no. 2279]
