29 09 2010

It is a privilege to invite everyone to join us as we resume the MSA Friday Night Halaqa! If you didn’t attend the series of halaqas last semester, you’ve been missing out!

Insha’Allah we will continue exploring the life of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

What better way to spend the most blessed day of the week than to learn about the most blessed man to ever live?

We look forward to seeing you there!

Welcome new officers!

14 05 2010

The following are the results of the MSA elections for the year 2010-2011:

President: Omar al-Sharif

Vice President: Ashraf el-Messidi

Secretary: Layla Husain

Treasurer: Essa Sharif

Alhamdulillah, all of the candidates are more than capable of the office they are responsible for. With the right amount of effort and dedication, the MSA can really make a difference for the Muslims on the campus of UTK. As President of the outgoing MSA administration, I’d like to thank all of the members and officers who participated in order to make our events successful. This past year went well, and InshaAllah with the new officers, next year will be even better.

 

Jazakum Allahu Khairan for all of your efforts,

           Waqas Ahmad (outgoing President)
