Virtually Muslim Education Program

Main Line Muslim Society (MLMS) is pleased to launch the Virtually Muslim Program which seeks to gather Muslim children, youth, and young adults through three separate groups to learn how the core tenants of Islam are applicable to their personal lives and the world around them.The Virtual Muslim Program balances the instruction of Quranic core beliefs (unicity (tawḥīd), love, justice, mercy, charity, service, gratitude, humility, etc.) with cultivating a strong individual and collective identity as American-Muslims. The emphasis of each class is providing a safe and open space where participants can discuss these topics freely and critically, appropriate to the different age groups, through interactive engagement and not just lecturing from a book.

The primary goal of the Program is to develop our children’s relationship to Allah, the Creator, and from that central understanding, foster a proud Muslim identity that is grounded in both Islam and a sense of civic responsibility as American citizens. The Virtually Muslim Program offers a stimulating forum where our children can discuss the challenges of being Muslim, in whatever form this may take, as well as provide an opportunity to meet other Muslims of the same age. The Program is based on being open, respectful, and inviting to a wide array of diverse Muslims who may be at different stages of development, and who come from varied cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

There are three separate levels available that will start on January 17th and meet every two weeks on Sunday:

Registration is required for each child.  Please register below or contact us for questions.

SPECIAL NOTE

VMP is now free of charge. With the financial hardships, especially brought by COVID, we decided that it was more important to offer this important educational service to the community to reach as many of our youth and children as possible. If this means offering these programs for free, it is well worth it!

 

For those of you who are able and would like to support the Virtually Muslim Program and/or the Children’s Story Time Program, we would appreciate a donation.
