WHAT: The AAIC Youth Halaqa is a youth-focused program that has been running at the Abubakar As-Saddiqeu Islamic Center facilities for the past few years. With the blessings of Allah swt, this effort has come and continues to be offered to the Abubakar As-Saddique Islamic Center in Minneapolis Area by very dedicated Leaders and organizers.
HOW: In each halaqa, the assigned leader conducts activities and discusses issues relevant to the specific ages and environment in the halaqa. With a blended integration of educational and fun activities, Halaqas aspire to raise a generation of committed and disciplined Muslims who will spread the message of Islam and implement it within their communities locally in the Minneapolis area and globally in the whole world. The ages of students range from 12 to 21 years old (6rd grade to high school) for both females and males and are grouped accordingly.
Halaqa leaders are dedicated volunteers who have been involved in the Muslim Community work and dawa activities, have experience working with youth, and are persons whom we trust to be good examples and role models for our youth.
WHEN: Halaqas meet for an hour or more starting 6:30 p.m. on Fridays. The exact halaqa length is decided by the halaqa leader like Sheikh and Imam Abdirisaq Hashi,
Shiekh Mohamed Shucayb
WHERE: All halaqas take place in the Masque of Abubakar As-Saddique Islamic Center (AAIC), which is part of the AAIC buildings located at: 2824 13 AVE SOUTH MINNEAPOLIS, MN 55407.
