Midatlantic 2019 Spring Camp

Dissociating from your desires is not letting go of your nafs, it is more so learning to control it. MYNA camps, and this whole organization, are both a hub for breeding friendships and connections that may benefit youth’s life for years to come. One week of being around people that may live thousands of miles away from you, and quickly creating magnetic bonds that will last a lifetime. Organizing an event as such is a true blessing; seeing the smiles of others and the impact that something Allah allowed you organized has on them is a beyond valuable.
— Humza Qureshi

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.
