To take advantage of this, it is advised that the Muslim Organization set up a lettering point system. For example, in order for a member to letter, he or she must earn a certain number of points.

MSA is a vital part of our high school experience, and its only fair that we include the MSA memory as a patch on our letter jackets (if we have one). Our district (CCISD) has only one qualification for getting a patch for a club (as of yet), and that is to have a merit system. The following is our merit system and why we felt it was essential for our club:
Merit System Method
MSA, in hopes of encouraging the members to get involved, has decided to have a merit system starting the 201o-2012 school year. The merit system follows a system of points. Activities the member participates in will be recorded. To be considered active, a member should regularly come to meetings, and do any of the following. The following is a the point break down for our merit system.
Goal: reach 500 points.
- Weekly friday meetings: 10 pts
- Attending Monthly Halaqa: 10 pts
- Giving girl’s halaqa: 50 pts
- **Giving boys Halaqa: 25 pts
- Giving Khutbah (Boys Only): 10 pts
- Making posters/Fliers etc…: 2 pts
- Volunteering: 5 pts/hr
- Fundraising: 5 pts
- Group Activites: (Homecoming activities, Carnival, Masjid events): 10 pts/hr
**The boys halaqa earns less points the brothers have the choice of giving the khutbah.
