What Is Shura?




Shura at the NJIT MSA is a group of highly motivated individuals who were elected to serve and represent the General Body. Asides from the responsibilities associated with their roles, members of Shura are expected to uphold the highest Islamic values, strive to increase themselves in knowledge, and stand as supporting pillars of the community.

The goal of the Shura is to strengthen the ties of brotherhood and sisterhood on campus, and assist others in becoming better Muslims. During their term, they are committed to being sincere mentors, active volunteers, and trustworthy confidants for matters inside and outside of the MSA.
