The Muslim Student Union is an organization that uniquely ties its religious goals into every event and activity it hosts. The MSU aims to provide a venue for Muslim students on the UCI campus to practice their religion and to grow spiritually. Encouraging an enhanced spiritual connection, many students find the religious services provided to be the most important aspect provided to them on campus.
The Muslim Student Union strives to bring to life the Islamic teachings to “enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong” through the pursuit of social justice for those suffering oppression and exploitation both domestically and internationally. As a vocal and firm advocate for victims of injustice, the Muslim Student Union aims to make strides towards creating awareness of issues regarding social injustice, paving a path for changing attitudes, perspectives, and support.
The Muslim Student Union at UC Irvine strives to establish a solid sisterhood and brotherhood between its members by providing a welcoming, safe, and open environment for Muslim students on campus. Each week is filled with several social activities, from sisters’ chai nights to brothers’ breakfasts to quarterly MSU dinners at local restaurants. Through these activities, MSU provides a home away from home and a support system during the most crucial years of a person’s life.
