Welcome to the UMB MSSA!


Mission Statement

The MSSA is dedicated to fostering fellowship among all UMB students through the planning, development, and implementation of various programmatic initiatives.  Our organization is an umbrella organization which is open to all students at UMB, and serves to provide support for its members.  We provide spiritual and social support for our members, as well as various educational opportunities for our members as well as the UMB campus as a whole, in order to enrich the intellectual atmosphere we have here on campus.  Our services and programs serve to fill a need created by students, specifically Muslim students, living away from an organized Muslim community and its social structure.

Verse of the Week

"Say: 'My slaves, you who have transgressed against yourselves, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Truly Allah forgives all wrong actions. He is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful," (W39:50; H39:53)

Hadith of the Week

Abu Dharr reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Allah the Mighty and Exalted, says, 'Anyone who comes with a good action will have ten like it or more. If anyone comes with a wrong action, the repayment of a wrong action is a wrong action like it or I will forgive him. If anyone approaches Me by a hand-span, I come to him an arm-span. If anyone approaches Me by an arm-span, I come to him two arm spans. If anyone approaches Me walking, I come to him running. If anyone meets Me with mistakes equivalent in weight to the whole earth, having not associated anything with Me, I will meet him with the same amount of forgiveness." [Muslim]
