Al-Mizan: Winter Youth Retreat

Al-Mizan: Winter Youth Retreat


November 10th-12th, 2017

Utilizing the treasure trove of our intellectual and spiritual heritage, namely the Qur’an & Sunnah, the Al-Mizan Winter Youth Retreat introduces students to our specially designed “Seeing with Both Eyes: The Holy Text and Tradition in Present Conditions” curriculum.  Al-Mizan is a Quranic word indicating the scale or balance.  Using the exemplary life of the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, Al-Mizan will teach students how they too can strike a balanced course with regards to their education, family, community, civic responsibility, environment, and within themselves.

The Al-Mizan Winter Youth Retreat is designed to provide high school aged students with a well-rounded introduction to Islamic Studies and Social Sciences taught by a host of great speakers.  This two and a half day retreat will offer students a variety of mentally stimulating lectures such as “The Qur’an and the Faculty of Reason,” “Engaging Feminism,” and “The Religion of Technology”, as well as physically invigorating activities that will transform any student’s winter vacation into a truly edifying experience, Insha’Allah.
