Midwest 2019 Spring Camp

The reason I call MYNA a breath of fresh air is because you become a better person within that week that you are with positive beings. You learn new things about Islam, people, and also about yourself. MYNA has truly created a new perspective for me. Without MYNA I wouldn’t know how to communicate with others and be a leader. Thanks to MYNA for being a breath of fresh air for myself and everyone who comes to it.
— Raya Smidi

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: Midwest’s Annual MYNA Spring Retreat. Join us this spring in Indiana and spend a weekend understanding Allah’s mercy, how to seek His forgiveness, and how to forgive others.

WHEN: March 15-17

WHERE: Camp Flat Rock River (click for camp website) at 6981 W Co Rd 650 N, St Paul, IN 47272


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.
