South Atlantic 2019 Spring Camp

Throughout the past couple of years, I have realized that in the midst of all the changes happening in my life, there has always been one constant, and that is MYNA and what it means to me. This organization is provided me with not only a safe space, but also a brave space. It has given me a platform to express myself and friends all over the nation that have become family. Through MYNA, you meet people that understand and respect where you are coming from and your background. You find people that just get it and are there for you unconditionally. People who love you and support you for being you.
— Mariam Soliman

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.
