Marhaban to the Muslim Student Association of Enschede!

We are a diversive and close-knit muslim community in the Netherlands

Who are we?

Our vision is therefore to act as a bridge between Muslims & non-Muslims and to make the Muslim students steadfast and knowledgeable, while creating a multicultural, home-like atmosphere for personal development on Islamic and Academic grounds.
Our association is based on the beautiful hadith: Narrated by Abu Musa (R.A.):

The Prophet (Peace & Blessings be upon him) said, "A believer to another believer is like a building whose different parts enforce each other." The Prophet then clasped his hands with the fingers interlaced (while saying that). [Ṣaḥīḥ Bukhārī 2446]
