Name of Club:

the Ahmadiyya Muslim Student Association

Purpose of Club:

AMSA (the Ahmadiyya Muslim Student Association) is an auxiliary organization of the word wide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.  The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at (AMJ) is a dynamic, fast growing international revival movement within Islam  AMJ is the leading Islamic Organization to categorically reject terrorism in any form.

Our objective is to create a welcoming space on campus for students to gather, learn, and bond.  We also aim to lead and facilitate humanitarian work and to provide students with the opportunity to make a difference in the community.  We want to work towards sharing the true and peaceful message of Islam, dispel misconceptions, and promote interfaith dialog.

In order to strengthen interfaith dialogue and connections among clubs on campus, we will make efforts to encourage peaceful discussion by holding event and Information tables enabling us to focus on similarities rather than differences.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community’s motto is “Love for all. Hatred for none” this simple motto speaks profoundly to the values and beliefs we hold as members of AMSA.
