Course Outline:

In current times, many youth in their quest for knowledge delve into specified and advanced Islamic teachings. However, sometimes a gap exists where many of the core fundamental teachings, the spirit of religion, and basic knowledge of life's questions are not clearly understood. This course hopes to address this concern and grant the students with a firm and solid understanding in the core objectives of their religion. The topics are chosen to raise discussion and encourage critical thinking. The instructor is known for using a variety of visual chart/diagrams to promote a more academic-style of teaching that students may relate to. The classes will also include activities arranged by the YM team, aside from a lecture-format, to help students form their own conclusions through their own thought process. All students are encouraged to attend; the course will revisit and may cause us to re-think some of our most basic assumptions of Islam.

Registration will be handled after the first class. If you surely plan to attend, then please pay a visit to our website and fill out the form to let us know you will be attending! The fee ($20 for entire course) can be paid at the end of the first class. This is for both, Brothers & Sisters.
(Age Group: Generally Post-Secondary Students & Grade 11,12 students are also welcomed)
