Muslim Youth of North America

Welcome to MYNA!




Prepare to enlighten your heart and open your mind with MYNA’s three-week intensive program dedicated to studying the Islamic sciences, investing in your personal development, and serving others through a hands-on practicum.

From the very first day the program began, I realized attending the intensive was one of the best decisions I had made. HIRA was an opportunity for me to not only learn more about my religion and faith but to learn more about myself, to reflect and grow, to improve and change. Being surrounded by 25 other girls, all who taught me so much in their own ways, and getting to spend time with scholars, to ask questions, to explore––those three weeks were a transformational experience. I still read over my HIRA notes three years later, still talk to every single one of the girls that became my sisters over those three weeks. I look back at that time and remember each and every time how blessed I was to be given that chance and how hopeful I am that others will get it too.
