IALFM Youth Committee

Do Good and Be Guided!
IALFM Youth Committee caters to the growing needs of the local youth community. Brothers and sisters who are attending school anywhere from middle school to the college or university level require nourishment for the soul and body that can only be found in a vibrant and strong Islamic community. IALFM Youth promotes excellence and achievement while promoting good, Muslim character in our youth by instilling community, spiritual and Islamic virtues. We hope to serve those needs, as well as adapt and grow to create a fun, energizing, and refreshing youth culture around the masjid – one that creates, strengthens, and motivates the future leaders of the Muslim Ummah.
Youth Committee plans many activities targeted towards youth including:
– Youth Halaqahs
– Annual Youth Picnic
– Qiyam & Iftaar
– Annual Mothers Appreciation Brunch
– Art classes
