Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullah,

As I sit here and reflect on what the past year has been, I feel nothing but absolute and utter gratitude for every single one of you. The things this year has taught me are insurmountable. You all have taught me things that no book could ever teach, showed me the depth of dedication, sincerity, and compassion that you are each capable of, and truly, we have crafted for ourselves a family that is capable of the most extreme care and love.

All praise be to Allah (swt) for allowing us to be a part of this beautiful community at Loyola. It is with His grace alone that we wrap up another beautiful year together. And He's enabled us to do some incredible work in the past year, Alhamdulillah! Here's a list to highlight a few:

1.) Raised OVER $4200 for the orphans. 6-7 orphans will be sponsored by Loyola MSA, insha’Allah!!
2.) Made and distributed a total of 2665 bagged lunches to Chicago's underserved populations
3.) We finally got Halal Food as an option in the Loyola Dining Hall!
4.) Had our first Jumma'h on the Quad
5.) Organized Winter clothing, Hygiene kit, toy drives
6.) Were blessed with the opportunities to bring prominent speakers such as Boonaa, Yasmin Mogahed, Yaser Birjas, Imam Suhaib Webb, and many more
7.) We've had over 4 Blood Drives and helped save over a hundred lives
8.) We had a Muslim Chaplain for the first time! (S.O to Omer M. Mozaffar)
9.) And best of all, we've created an incredible family, Alhamdulillah.

Yes, we are a powerhouse, alhamdulillah, but I hope that you all realize that none of the above would have been possible without each of you. We are a community driven by the love for service to others and by our desire to each tread on our path towards Him (swt). The MSA 2014-15 journey is but a compilation of our collective journeys to our Creator, and it is my sincere hope that we can help one another unlock the key to that journey towards Him (swt).

It has been an extreme honor to serve you all and I ask each of you reading this to please find it in your hearts to forgive myself, Anas, and the rest of the team if we ever did or said anything to hurt, offend, take for granted, knowingly or unknowingly, publicly or privately, intentionally or unintentionally, any of you throughout the year. I ask you to forgive us and I pray that Allah (swt) continues to shower this community with His blessings. I pray that He (swt) protects and guides each of us towards Him, that He fills our hearts with faith and love, opens our eyes to his beauties everywhere, and cleanses our souls through His mercy.

Here's a video to highlight all the awesomeness in the past year. Enjoy!!

With love, care, and humility,
Sharifah :)

Salaam everyone,

Hope finals week is going well for all of you. As our year comes to an end, I wanted to thank everyone who contributed and helped raised money for the Orphan Sponsorship Drive throughout the year. Alhamdulilah we raised over $4100 and we could not have done it without you guys. If you would still like to contribute you can find donation boxes in the Musallah or you can quickpay to gandhia2013@gmail.com.

Insha'Allah you all ace your exams. Finish off strong and enjoy your summer.

Assalaamu alaikum
Dear graduates,
We apologize for the delay, but here is a small token of appreciation for everything you've done and just your existence from the family you're leaving behind. Each jar contains some rocks and pebbles from Loyola's beach so you can always have a little piece of Loyola with you and 16 notes ranging from tasks to quotes to reminders. Whenever you need a bit of a boost on this new journey you're embarking on, we hope you remember us and may these notes put a smile on your face and give you some peace. We pray that Allah (swt) fills your life with all the happiness, love, and success in the world and rewards you with the best in the next one.
Please pick up the gift with your name on it from the musallah before your big day! Now make us proud and go forth and set the world on fire! We'll catch you in Jannah insha'Allah ✌️
Best,
Your Loyola MSA family

Ps. MAAAJOR shoutout to Samreen and Lyba Zia for dedicating countless hours and effort in putting these together, Abdullah Ansari and Adil Ahmad for providing each jar with a bit of Loyola, and everyone else who contributed in anyway or had the intention to (Safa, Anbreen Basher, Maryam Arif, Sarah, Amal S.
