North Central 2019 City Edition

At MYNA I feel like I fit in, I belong. There’s no struggle to find that group of people you fit in with because we are all there for the same purpose: we all want to take a week to be the best Muslims we can be. I didn’t know what it meant to love someone for the sake of Allah until I went to MYNA. I am truly grateful for the people MYNA has brought into my life. Alhamdulilah for everything.
— Noha Tebry

Say, "O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful." [The Holy Qur’an, 39:53]

No one is perfect.

That much we can all agree upon. But the beauty of Islam is that, as long as you’re alive, it’s never too late to ask for forgiveness, for Allah is the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. He is there to love us, even in our darkest hours. To comfort us, even in our darkest moments. To forgive us, even for our darkest faults. And indeed, He loves those who repent.

The mark of character is not whether or not we make mistakes. Everyone makes mistakes. The true mark of character is how we respond after we’ve made a mistake.

The path to seeking His forgiveness-and forgiving others is here.

The path to a new youth, starts now.

WHO: All youth ages 12-19

WHAT: North Central’s Annual MYNA City Edition in Chicago. Join us this spring in Illinois and understand Allah’s mercy, how to seek his forgiveness, and how to forgive others.

WHEN: April 19-21

WHERE: Westin O’Hare: 6100 N River Rd, Rosemont, IL 60018


WHY: MYNA is different. MYNA is special. MYNA is not just another youth group. The reason behind this is simple - MYNA is dedicated for youth, and managed by youth. Through its various leadership camps and other offered programs, MYNA not only empowers Muslim youth to become engaged and active leaders in their spheres back home, whether its religious, social, or even political, but gives them the platform and skills they need to succeed. The friends you make at a MYNA retreat will be people you will always be able to rely on, talk to, and who will always support you, regardless of distance.
