In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Mercy-Giving

 

All praise is due to Allah. Peace and blessings be upon His Messenger Muhammad.

 

Muslim Youth can maintain their Islamic identity only by:

 

1- Imparting sound Islamic beliefs and practices at home. Allah says “O you who believe, save yourselves and your families from the fire of hell, whose fuel is human beings and stones: in charge of it the angels who are stern and severe, who do not disobey God in whatever He has commanded them, but [always] do what they are bidden to do. (At-tahrim 66: 6)

 

2- Exposing the youth to the authentic Islamic knowledge and inculcating in them a desire to enhance learning and practice through those who trained and reputable.

 

3- Engaging them in the activities that foster a sense of community and belonging. Prayer or worship alone is not sufficient; instead they need to be part of a spiritual community with shared values and beliefs;

 

4- Praying to Allah constantly: “Our Lord, Grant us joy in our spouses and our offspring, and include us among those who are ever mindful (and conscious) of You.” (Al-Furqan 25: 74)

 

Almighty Allah knows best.
