Welcome to the University Of Houston MSA
Established in 1964, the UHMSA was founded as a place for Muslim students attending the University of Houston from all backgrounds and cultures to make friends and find a supportive community. The UHMSA seeks to create a strong unified Muslim student body as well as contribute to bettering our community through public service and outreach programs. Through our community efforts, the UHMSA aims to educate and inform the at large community what Islam truly teaches and what being a Muslim is all about.

UHMSA hosts a ton of events! Check out the calendar to see whats coming up! Hope to see you there!
UHMSA is excited to announce that we will be collaborating with Texas Dawah Convention this year! We will be hosting parallel sessions geared specifically towards college-aged students.
The struggle is real. In fact, struggles are the only thing guaranteed in this life. Dealing effectively with them, however, is something that isn’t as much of a given.
This year’s convention focuses on not only the unique struggles that we face, but ways to overcome them and use them for the betterment of ourselves and society as a whole.
As individuals, Muslims, and Americans, we understand that struggling is a part of the journey in this life. College comes with its own obstacles and avenues of growth, yet understanding the true impact of each step taken is key to maneuvering those avenues. Join us in learning about and acknowledging the “Footsteps of Greatness” that have been taken by our fellow Muslims - entrepreneurs, artists, athletes, inventors, politicians, activists, scholars and academics - and to understand how you can also leave a lasting impact on yourself, the people around you, and in this life and the next.

Jazaka’Allah khair, we hope to see you there!
Ansar Muhajireen Project
The Ansar Muhajireen Project, or better known as AMP was created to provide a great college experience for incoming students, such as offering a mentor/mentee program designed to partner more experienced college students with newer incoming students, making the idea of college an easier trip for those nervous and unsure of how to navigate. AMP also hosts many events such as career professional panels and team based exercises.
If you would like to sign up to be a part of one of the best programs on campus and have a mentor you can do so here!
If you are interested in becoming a speaker or giving a presentation in AMP, we encourage you to scroll down to fill out the CONTACT US form below! We are always looking for more speakers to share their knowledge!
One of UHMSA's major functions is its continuing drive for education, whether it is Islamic, career, or historical knowledge. Often times, UHMSA will host a speaker or create a panel of guests who are more than willing to educate young Muslims. Along with speakers, UHMSA is a strong advocate for interfaith work as well as any opportunity to educate the community about Islam such as our weekly Dawah Table.
Every Tuesday and Wednesday, UHMSA hosts a Dawah Table, a stop for people going to class to learn about Islam, offering any information and brochures for those curious about Islam.
TIMINGS & LOCATION:
Tuesday 11:00 am - 2:00 pm at the PGH Breezeway
Wednesday 11:00 am - 2:00 pm at the PGH Breezeway
