The word youth represents the future generation and the Muslim American Society is all about empowering the future generations of Muslims in America. The sad reality we are facing with other faith communities is that the youth are often low in faith and not interested in attending the Mosque. We at MAS are motivated to offer fun attractive programs for our youth. The idea is to give them an opportunity to build an identity in an environment that caters to their needs on a comprehensive level. We want to make the Mosque and its activities appealing to them. We have had camps, white water rafting, lazer tag, go carting, youth basketball tournaments, spoken word competitions etc… Around these enjoyable activities we have small reminders and interactive discussions which develop the spiritual side. Similarly, while involved in these activities there is character and etiquette guidance given in a gentle brotherly manner by the Imam and counselors.
We plan to have many more of these throughout the year and encourage you to get involved as much as possible.
