This year’s keynote speaker is Ustadh Ubaydullah Evans, who is the first Scholar-in-Residence for the American Learning Institute for Muslims (ALIM). He converted to Islam while in high school. Upon conversion, Ustadh Ubaydullah began studying some of the foundational books of Islam under the private tutelage of local scholars while simultaneously pursuing a degree in journalism from Columbia. Since then he has studied at Chicagoland’s Institute of Islamic Education (IIE), in Tarim, Yemen, and Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt, where he graduated from its Shari’a program. Ustadh Ubaydullah is also an instructor with the Ta’leef Collective and the Inner-City Muslim Action Network (IMAN). Ustadh Ubaydullah is married with two children.
We are also looking for one senior and one freshmen to present Senior and Freshmen reflections at the banquet. So if you are interested in offering a short 3-minute reflection, please email <firstname.lastname@example.org> before Wednesday, September 30th
to be considered.
Assalamu Alaikum! Alhamdulillah the holy month of Ramadan is upon us once again! We pray that you all have a blessed and fruitful month, and grow closer to Allah (SWT) in these upcoming days. May Allah (SWT) bless our families and communities with peace, tranquility, strong faith, and healthy and active lives. May He give us the best of this world and the Hereafter. Ameen. Ramadan Kareem!

Dear Class of 2019, Friends, and Families,
Congratulations Yale Class of 2019! We congratulate you for your hard work, your passion, your dedication and for choosing Yale! We are so excited to have you all here, and we look forward to seeing you all. As the Yale MSA, we are very excited to welcome new members to our community. Not long ago, I was in the same place you are in right now. MSA was a fundamental part of my freshman year, and I hope you experience the same sense of warmth from our community. We understand that Muslim students and their families often have specific questions or concerns regarding living on campus, or the college atmosphere in general. So please let us know if there is anything we can help you with. Both the MSA board and our Chaplain Omer Bajwa, as well as members of the greater Muslim community at Yale are ready to welcome you and help ease your transition into this wonderful University!
Welcome Yale Class of 2019!
Amin Elamin, MC’18
President of Yale MSA
