Young Ummah

Introduction

At Young Ummah our vision is to reach out to as many youth as possible in attracting them to the beauty of Islam.

Because we understand that the youth may not always see the Masjid as a place that they would like to ‘hang out’, we try our utmost best to take a dynamic approach in attracting the youth towards the Masjid and this is why we take a lot of time and effort in planning what topics and skills would be most appealing to them as well as what knowledge and skills they will need and hence take away with them so as they could truly appreciate being ideal Muslims in today’s society.

As well as providing them with strong Islamic Tarbiyyah and key skills, we create an environment where the youth can build on the brother/sisterhood and develop confidence in themselves and their beliefs in a fun and halal environment. Through the exemplary behaviour and conduct of our dedicated volunteers, we provide excellent role models and mentors for the youth.

Regular Youth Clubs & Activities

We aim to cover all areas of Youth development through our regular youth clubs and youth activities. These areas include social, academic, spiritual, moral and recreational.

By covering all the areas of youth development we would ensure youth use their time outside school, college and university constructively as well as developing key skills and gaining vital knowledge to be able to aide themselves and others within their community. It is important, as the knowledge they speak and the skills they demonstrate would no doubt influence many around them. Seeing as they are the teachers of tomorrow; the youth deserve all the opportunities that we could provide for them today!
