Introducing, dedicated Office of Youth Director’s weekly office and consultation hours that we may connect over and explore answers together.
This is an opportunity for us all to leverage Br. Hassan’s 10+ years experience in the field of Youth Development, coupled with the strategies from –
a) the Qur’an (e.g. Yaqub AS approach with Yusuf AS),
b) the Sunnah (the Prophet’s S approach with the Hassan R and Hussain R) and
c) emerging evidence (the parameter that measures success at the age of 32) and much more!
Our Director’s Note: Often times, we reach out at the far end of the spectrum, that is, when it is almost too late. I encourage our dear parents to reach out at those initial questions and doubts. The Prophet S told us that we all are born on fitra (natural inclination towards Allah). And our culture, family, surroundings, shaytan, leads us away. We must do our best to strengthen their faith, and answers those doubts at the younger ages. This understanding of faith will not only make it difficult for the culture and shaytan to cause severe doubts but establish their natural fitra as their core, a shield, contrary to what most who leave Islam has their core (decision making) based off. May Allah protect us all!
It is said it takes a village, so let us come together to explore the topics and complexities of today, or if you just want to talk it out.
Shayr the Khayr!
