Muslim students gather in the Quad for community prayer
The Muslim Students Association (MSA) came together for Friday prayer, or Jumaa, last week on the Quad at SF State.
Fridays are a day or community prayer for Muslims. They usually gather in a mosque to pray and listen to the Imam, the person who leads prayer. Once every semester, MSA holds prayer outside in the Quad.
For last week’s service Imam Amir Abdul Malik of Masjid Al Islam Mosque in Oakland and graduate of SF State led the attendees in prayer and gave a sermon to the worshipppers, some of whom visited SF State just for Jumaa.
