MSA-UBC is affiliated with the MSA National, which is the uniting and coordinating body of all local Muslim Students Associations in North America. We work together with other chapters from other universities with the common goal and purpose to serve the best interests of Islam and Muslims in Canada and the United States.
To achieve these goals, MSA-UBC has taken active roles both within the Muslim student community and also the UBC general student population. As we strive to make ourselves visible on campus, we have been regularly participating in selected student-related activities and events. These include participation on Club’s Day, UBC Open House, and a number of activities organized by the International House. We also organize events such as Islam Day, public speaking events, fundraising activities, monthly informal afternoon tea gatherings, and social events including BBQs, dinners, and sport activities. We have also a diverse library collection of Islamic materials which is made available to members.
The MSA holds 5 times daily prayers and Taraweeh at the Musallah in Brock Hall Annex. The address is Room 2357, 1874 East Mall V6T-1Z1. (open to all Muslims)
Jumu’ah salaat is held at the Lower Lounge of the International House: 1783 West Mall, UBC, Vancouver (open to all Muslims)
