Young Muslims, brothers and sisters, are the backbone of our communities. Islamic centers should empower and support the youth, and give them leading roles in the mosques and Islamic centers.

On the occasion of Prophet Muhammad’s birthdays, Youth halaqas and programs in Islamic centers may focus on activities that raise awareness about Prophet’s Muhammad (peace be on him) and his noble morals.

They may study the Seerah of Prophet Muhammad and his Companions.

Young Muslims may do some programs to introduce Prophet Muhammad to people from all communities. This can happen by holding some programs to welcome neighbors, friends, and faith and non-faith communities to the mosques and Islamic Centers to know more about Islamic values and Muslims’ cultures.

Allah Almighty knows best.
