Who Are We?
- The Muslim Students Association of Tufts (MSAT) serves both the Muslim community and those interested to learn about Islam.
- We seek to provide a welcoming community of faith and friendship, while fostering the values of our Islamic faith and accommodating the needs of the Muslim students on campus.
- We hold weekly discussions of the scriptures (Qur'an and Ahadith) and issues relevant to Islam, organize community iftars during the month of Ramadan, invite prominent speakers to campus and work with other student organizations on campus to build an environment of peace and mutual understanding.
- Above all, Islam means submission to God, and our ultimate goal is to seek His pleasure through our activities.
The organizational structure for how we achieve these goals can be found in the MSAT constitution.
