California 2019 Winter 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

It’s the greatest source for clarity, a guidance, a mercy, and a glad tiding for those who believe.

It’s the lifeline we turn to when we are in need, the playbook to help us reach the ultimate prize.

It’s the Quran, the ultimate Truth sent down from God, and the Book whose message and miracles youth will explore this summer.
