Muslim Student Association at the University of Kentucky

Serving Islam in the Big Blue Nation since 1971

The MSA at UK is committed to building an environment of brotherhood and sisterhood within the community. We are committed to creating a space on campus that teaches students how to become confident and conscientious individuals in a contemporary, pluralistic society. The MSA is open to people of any race, religion, and culture. As an organization, we aim to:

  • 1. Endeavor to make Islamic teachings known to all.
  • 2. Promote friendly relations between Muslims and the community at large
  • 3. Promote unity and joint action among the Muslims
  • 4. Educate, mobilize, and coordinate students to struggle against injustice and oppression
  • 5. Conduct social, cultural, religious and other activities in the best traditions of Islam.

    Islamic Education

    We aim to increase our Islamic knowledge through peer led discussions about Qur'an and other Islamic literature. Additionally each semester we work hard to bring a reknowned speaker for the benefit of not only the club but the community at large.

    Community Service

    During the 2015-2016 Calendar year the MSA collectively served nearly 600 hours of community service. Some of the organizations we have worked with include Seadleaf, Habitat for Humanity, American Breast Cancer Foundation, God’s Pantry, the Hope Center, Wrap Up America, Stop Hunger Now, Students For Syria, Lexington Universal Academy, Martin Luther King Center, and the Share Center.

    Dawah & Outreach

    Some of the activities that take place during Islamic Awareness week are tabling events, panels, and community service opportunities. During IAW we made it on to the campus Snapchat story and reached out to over 7000 people! The UK MSA hopes the activities of the week will help bring us closer to establishing more unified community on campus.
