Facebook: “USC Muslim Student Union”

The Muslim Student Union at USC has the primary focus of providing a strong Muslim community to the undergraduate and graduate students on the USC campus. Our aim is to educate both Muslims and non-Muslims about Islam, promote Islamic ideals, and help the underprivileged in the local community and abroad. Furthermore, the MSU aims to foster an active, interconnected Muslim community at the University of Southern California. We hold many events, both religious and social, to provide unique experiences grounded in faith. Our weekly events include Arabic classes on Mondays, Halaqah’s on Wednesdays with our chaplain Sheikh Jibreel Speight, Tajweed classes on Thursdays, Jumu’ah prayer on Fridays, and student-led activities during the week. We hold many more events throughout the semester as well. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram (@usc.msu), or online!

The Sufi Association’s aim is to raise spiritual awareness and foster dialogue and understanding amongst different religious groups to create a bridge between religions. We host and attend Interfaith, cultural, and musical events as well as community service events, meditation workshops and seminars at the University of Southern California. Specifically, we host free Tamarkoz (Sufi meditation) workshops at USC, every third Saturday of the month, as an opportunity for students and faculty to learn how to revitalize their body, mind, and spirit. Come experience tranquility and balance with us!
