Muslim Student and Allies (MSA) is a club at South that welcomes students of all backgrounds to join them in learning about the Islamic culture and practices.
Faisa Hassan, sophomore, created MSA at the start of the 2016-2017 school year to educate all kinds of students on the religion of Islam and to create an environment for students to go and feel welcome.
Hassan shared why she started the club.
“I’ve seen a lot of people having the misconceptions of being Islam and being blindsided by the media, so I decided to create this club so it would be a safe environment for other Muslim students and to teach others about what Islam really is,” she said.
MSA educates students about writing in Arabic, Islamic traditions, cultural aspects and more.
Member of MSA, Muna Osman, recently joined after hearing about it through friends and around the school.
Osman described her favorite part of MSA.
“Just all the people. Everyone is so energized and happy at seven in the morning,” said Osman.
Some students, like Ivy Schank are just now learning about MSA. Schank had heard of the club from posters around the school. Students have different views on what they think happens in MSA.
“From what I’ve heard about MSA I think it is a good feeling of security for Muslim students,” said Schank.
The club meets every other Friday in A204 at 7:00 a.m. Come to the next meeting to learn about the Islamic culture, or to enjoy the company of other students at South.
