What is an Usra?
The MAS usra is a program of self-development and activism. The central goal of the usra is tarbiya, continual personal development at all levels. It is a spiritually-focused, activism-oriented program that develops the individual and explores issues of da’wah and working for Islam as a central priority in life. MAS offers the usra program to help its committed members persist on an organized, systematic path of self-development and community service.
