Al bayan: Our Statement

From our early days as a newsletter, to an award-winning print magazine, and a digital media platform - we've come a long way. 

Al Bayan was initially founded as a forum for Northwestern's Muslim Cultural Student's Association. In 2012, the first edition of the magazine was printed, and the Society of Professional Journalists awarded our 2017 print issue Best Regional Student Magazine. From the start, we've provided a space for Muslim students to create our own narratives, ask questions and explore issues important to us. It is the only media platform at Northwestern that is produced by and for the Muslim community.
