Ontario MSAs for Al Maghrib

Salam alaikum

I think the MSAs of Ontario Universities, Colleges and even high schools should form a coalition to help promote Al Maghrib. The reason why I bring this up is because many MSAs promote events like RIS, and I feel that if the same could be done for Al Maghrib then insha Allah there will be a lot of benefit for all involved!


Things that can be done by each MSA:

1. Video/teaser for each class on display at an MSA event
2. Testomonies of those who have attended
3. Khutbahs about a topic for an upcoming Al Maghrib class, then promoting that class
4. Have the Al Maghrib Shaikh come over for a mini talk (a little far-fetched perhaps, but still!)

Advantages:

1. Out-of-town students who are part of this coalition will find it easier to find accomodations, places to eat, etc. in the town of the class. The responsibility for helping out-of-towners would be on the MSA of the host city (e.g. in Toronto, it would be Ryerson and UTM, in Ottawa, it could be U of Ottawa, etc.).

2. Make it easy for people in one town to go to other towns as a group to take Al Maghrib classes. For example, if people from Waterloo want to go down to Toronto to take the Seerah class, then the Waterloo MSA can arrange for a bus to take a group of students to Toronto at a cheaper cost.

3. Help promote Al Maghrib en masse!


I know that the UW MSA would be very willing to join in, I'm sure Ryerson MSA and UTM MSA are down with this insha Allah (considering how many Ryerson and UTM people come to the classes!!). What do the Majdians think of this idea?

Re: Ontario MSAs for Al Maghrib

awesome idea. I think numbers 2, and 3 should be easy to do. 4 shouldnt be a problem if the shaykh is already in town.

but number 1, and possibly other forms of advertising, might have a few glitches. having been a former MSA exec for 2 years, i can say that it takes alot to convince the MSAs that alMaghrib is something worth their time. There's alot of politics involved (thru people who might have *heard* things about alMaghrib), or from figuring out how to support one community group, but not another.

At UTM, it was pretty easy to convince the other execs/ general body that alMaghrib would be beneficial - alhamdulillah. But either not all MSAs think the same way, or they're not willing to commit themselves to an outside organization which they have minimal influence over (because when you promote a given organization / event, you implicitly endorse whatever goes on in it...)

and Allah [swt] knows best.

Great ideas! Don't forget the Muslims of Kitchener (my hometown), especially those who don't attend colleges.

Re: Ontario MSAs for Al Maghrib

If MSAs can pull this off, we would have so much more advertising potential.

Re: Ontario MSAs for Al Maghrib

The HIGH SCHOOL MSAs should get involved as well!
At least for the HIGH SCHOOLS that have MSAs that is.

High school MSAs would be an amazing idea. Some campuses (like UTM, I think) have connections / lists of most of the high school MSAs in the area...

McMaster MSA would love to be able to host something like this if a shaykh is available.

Re: Ontario MSAs for Al Maghrib

I love you all for the sake of Allah

That is a brilliant idea to truly promote Al-Maghrib out there, especially to the many Muslims who still have not heard about it or are not aware of what Al-Maghrib has to offer them.

If there was a coalition of MSA'S across all schools.. that would make everything so much easier. Perhaps we can begin now with a pool of contacts from all of us of all the university MSA'S, colleges, and highschools to bring together and then map out a plan on how to promote al-maghrib. We can have our own Al-Maghrib list of MSA contacts, inshallah.

Please be aware that some MSA'S are not very established. I suggest that an Al-Maghrib brother/sister, perhaps the Ameer/Ameerah can begin organizing the days and times to go to these different MSA for the upcoming seminar.
