In the name of God, the most Gracious, most Merciful
On behalf of the board members of the club, we would all like to welcome all new students and members to the UC Santa Cruz MSA. We would also like to welcome back all of our old and recurring members. We had a great time last year, and hopefully it will be as fun and educational this year.
We have a lot of exciting things planned for this year insh’Allah and we hope that all of you try your best to make it out to our meetings; where we usually discuss things like social events, educational meets/halaqahs, and marriage proposals(no just kidding.. I think haha)… etc. Anyway, the MSA meetings are crucial part of our club because it is where we talk to everyone and get feedback from all of the members.. It is important that you try to make it because, of course we need you! With out all of you there is no club, and there would be nothing. Also remember that every thought counts! Try to be as open, respectful, and mindful as possible with any of the board members and club members, this will strengthen the kinship among the club. Of course, we will discuss more of these things in our welcome meeting.. which brings me to the next topic:
Our first welcome meeting is going to be next week! That is Wednesday October 2nd, at 8pm. Try to make it out! Of course, there will be some reminders through out next week, we’ll try our best not to spam all of you with FaceBook notifications and emails, I promise ;).
Jumaa prayer will always most likely be in the Cervantes and Velasquez Conference Room, at 1:30pm. On 3 days of this quarter they will be in the Redwood lounge, and we will give out notifications hopefully a week in advance for jumaas, in that way we hope to avoid confusion. This Friday, September 26… Jumaa are in the Redwood Lounge at 1:30pm(Not confirmed yet, will send out an email later to confirm.. be on the look out).
Ok I think that is enough of my ramblings, we will try and post educational and inspiring posts on this website all due in rememberance of Allah(SWT) and we also ask from Allah(SWT) to send our blessings; prayers, and glad tidings to the Messenger(SAW). Ameen.
“Truly in the heart there is a void that cannot be removed except with the company of Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala. And in there is a sadness that cannot be removed except with the happiness of knowing Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala and being true to Him. And in there is an emptiness that cannot be filled except with love for Him and by turning to Him and always remembering Him. And if a person were given all of the world and what is in it, it would not fill this emptiness.”
