Our Youth Group meets every Friday Night from 7:30pm. to 8:30pm.
Imām Ja'far ibne Muhammad as-Sadiq (a.s.) said to a man: “What is meant by a young person [Al-Fatā] in your estimation?” The man replied, “A youth.” The Imām (a.s.) replied, “No, the young person [Al-Fatā] is the true believer. Surely the Companions of the Cave [Aṣḥābul Kahf] were all old people, however Allah, Glory and Greatness be to Him, called them youth who believed in Him.”
The youth group is a peer led group of individuals from the age of 12 to 18.
Guidance is provided by a youth coordinator.
We focus on issues facing Muslims on a global level and issues facing the youth on a personal level. We do this in the form of
· Guest Speakers
· Open Discussions
· Trips to Islamic conventions, community events including sporting events, and community services
Imām Ḥasan ibne Alī al-Mujtabā (peace be upon him) has said: “Surely today you are the youth of the nation, and tomorrow, you will be the leaders of the community, thus, it is incumbent upon you to seek knowledge.”
All youth in the above stated age range are welcome and we encourage participation to stay informed, like us on Facebook
