The Prophet (saw) advised to: “Take benefit of five before five: Your youth before your old age, your health before your sickness, your wealth before your poverty, your free time before you are preoccupied, and your life before your death” (Narrated by Ibn Abbas and reported by Al Hakim)

Workshop suitable for males and females from ages 13 – upward

This time it’s by the youth for the youth.

Topics & Summary:

School life and Deen???

This discussion is essential for you to understand the challenges faced by youth in those environments and how to deal with them.

The Muslimah Revolution..

A problem in society is that often times female related issues are sidelined. Either they are addressed from a male perspective or females are too shy to ask. This discussion aims to address those issues from a females perspective.

Deen and Dating…

People are attracted to the opposite gender and this normally manifests itself through dating and courtship. Dating has become a norm in our society. Is this the way things should be? What does Deen have to say?

Proud to be a Stranger…

Peer pressure is undoubtedly one of the most influential factors among the youth. What “everyone else” is doing these days poses a scary challenge to any young person wanting to hold on to their Islamic identity, but this leads to them being dubbed the strangers of society.

What practical steps can Islam offer the youth to deal with these challenges. It’s time to hear about these highly controversial issues from the perspectives of the youth, the modern world and Islam.

Habits of highly successful and happy Muslim youth…

Often youth feel as though Islam is only for the adults. The idea of “I first need to come right before I can have a relationship with Allah” causes many youth to simply turn away from Islam altogether. How do some youth manage to successfully maintain their Islamic principles and still have fun whilst pursuing their goals?

This interactive session offers practical steps towards finding that proverbial “balance” in life, which many people claim to be pursuing.

Open Questions and Answers Session…

Youth don’t often have the opportunity to engage with scholars, especially not with young dynamic people who have authentic Islamic knowledge along with the experience of the modern world.

This is your chance to ask anything you want and even remain anonymous and hopefully receive solutions to those burning issues.
