Building MSA’s: The Plight of Inner City Muslims

As more Muslims flock towards the comfortable, suburban demographic- we seem to be
losing sight of the bigger picture. We must remind ourselves to not have a limited perception
of reality, but rather to constantly remember the less fortunate sides of our Ummah.
By choosing to keep our money and resources close to our own communities, we have
abandoned our very own brothers & sisters in the inner-city. It is time to rid ourselves of
the “out of sight-out of mind” mentality, and agree that ALL communities deserve to be
uplifted. We should come up with projects from our respective campuses that can give
back to these communities.
