It may seem like the punchline of a joke, but Alpha Lambda Mua one-of-a-kind, all-Muslim fraternity at the University of Texasis serious about rehabbing the reputations of both fraternities and Islam.
Founded in February by student Ali Mahmoud, Alpha Lambda Mu or Alif Laam Meem in Arabic is a community of Islamic male students living together as brothers at UT-Austin. The goal of the organization is to provide a sense of community to Muslim students, many of whom struggled with reconciling their religious beliefs and campus lifestyles, said Ali.
The primary purpose of a fraternity is to unite these men as brothers under a specific cause, he said in an interview with The Independent. Were taking whats good from the fraternity model and leaving whats bad.
For an American Muslim, most modern fraternities come with plenty thats bad. In recent decades, fraternities and sororities have become associated with reckless drinking, raucous partying and sometimes-dangerous initiation practices.
Drinking alcohol is strictly forbidden under Islam.
Ali understands that many people would view Islam and Greek life as incompatible.
The idea of a Muslim fraternity seemed heretical, he said.
But living together and supporting one another makes it easier to follow Islam while at college, he said.
In addition to changing stereotypes about fraternities, ALM is also attempting to change stereotypes about Islam, which is often criticized for treating women as inferior to men. In April, members of the fraternity attended a rally for womens rights where they held signs bearing such messages as Muslims Say No to Domestic Violence, and Muslims Say Yes to Womens Rights.
We hope that after all is said and done, we will have a strong group of guys who will stand up for social justice, for the needy, and for their societies just as the religion calls them to do, said Ali.
The groups Facebook page mentions four goals of ALM: honoring Allah, forming brotherly bonds, promoting academic success and strengthening character.
Interested Muslim male students at UT-Austin can rush ALM beginning next week. Pledges should expect a sharia-compliant hazing.
University of Texas, it figures.
Hm, I wonder if they know they’ve crossed the line and become apostates - at least to “good” Muslims.
Apostates and heretics all
So, they are all Muzzie Brothers then?
SO they want to promote brotherhood among muslims?
Like a.... Muslim Brotherhood sorta kinda?
What could go wrong?
...so it’s okay if Muslims discriminate?
U of T with it’s very own terrorist cell.
Guess I’ll be putting an extra magazine in my pocket when traveling downtown from now on... and no more Capitol 10Ks!
let’s see the remake of Animal House with Bluto played by ?, including
1. suicide initiations
sorry, not inspired
Now UT can brag about having an anti-American fraternity. A fraternity that embraces buggery and misogyny.
Hook ‘em Horns!
“The groups Facebook page mentions four goals of ALM: honoring Allah, forming brotherly bonds, promoting academic success and strengthening character.”
It’s missing the key component which is fostering a relationship with the university and community..an essential ingredient of my university frat, and any average college frat in the US.

I figured as much, too-—and UT is within a few miles of my home........
The jokes practically write themselves ;)
Sickening. I often thought of the Dem wish to weaken Texas and turn it blue. One way to do it is to park all the undesirables in our state to overwhelm the state system.
Are there other religious fraternities at UT? I wonder.
Lastly, you promise to do everything in your power to promote Jihad in America and around the world in order to KILL, forceably convert, or enslave as many "Infidels" as you can while practicing "taquia" by lying through your teeth and swearing for all to hear that: "Islam is a religion of PEACE!"
What is it called? Choppa-Choppa-Choppa?..........
Was thinking, haven’t we heard this song before?
‘Peaceful’ muslim groups get infiltrated and overrun by extremists and ‘voila’,,instant fireworks.
Considering how porous the Southern border is with Mexico, Texas makes sense as a destination for the Muslim thugs.
