Outreach is an integral part of MSA as well as a principal part of Islam. It teaches us to aid those in need regardless of their circumstances. In Surat Al-Hujarat, Allah says: “Oh mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.” (49:13)
At OSU, we value inclusion and attempt to make all students welcome regardless of their background. A few of our most anticipated events of the year include Fast-A-Thon and Discover Islam Week. To learn more about these events and other ways to get involved contact us.

Fast-A-Thon is MSA’s annual interfaith charity event. Through this event we seek to highlight the issue at hand and also bring a panel of religious leaders in order to discuss what more can be done, and to also let people know of the resources that are available to them at Ohio State.
This year we will be discussing food security, as it is an issue that affects both the campus and the local communities.
Fast-A-Thon will be on November 17th, 2017. Stay tuned for more details!
Discover Islam Week
The goal of Discover Islam Week is to bridge the gap between Muslims and Non-Muslims and create a space for dialogue. Every day during Discover Islam Week we have an event that highlights a different aspect of Islam and the Muslim experience.
Past events have involved, Wear A Hijab Day and #SelfieWithAMuslim these both aim at giving non-Muslims the opportunity to engage and ask questions to Muslims to try and clear up any misconceptions they may have. We are in the process of planning this year’s Discover Islam Week and are welcoming suggestions please contact us if you would like to get involved!
