South Central 2018 Winter Camp

If you want your children to prosper with the proper tools and drive that is necessary to survive as a young Muslim in today’s world, send them to MYNA. Support a community that will provide children with the confidence to make it through any obstacle and climb any wall growing up in 2018 throws at them. Community has the power of turning a word - religion or faith - into a way of living that will support them for the rest of their lives. Parents, the future of Islam rests in your hands. This is it.
— Yusuf Baig

In the era of a new message, the time when Islam was first introduced, they were the Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) greatest companions. In every state of Islam––the trials and the successes, the defeats and the victories––they were the people who showed great strength of unity and fearlessness in the way of Allah (SWT). They were the people who firmly stood with our beloved Prophet (PBUH), who laid their lives for he prosperity of this divine message. 

They were the stars in our Prophet’s orbit. 

And they are the lives and legacies that will be explored this winter.
