High School Girls’ Halaqa
February 29 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
An event every week that begins at 6:00 PM on Saturday, repeating indefinitely
The girls’ halaqa uses the concept of “ta’aruf”, which in Arabic translates to “the process of getting to know one another.” The goal of the halaqa has been to foster a strong bond of sisterhood among the girls and create an environment where high school girls are comfortable speaking to each other about issues that being a Muslim girl in America faces. The halaqa has played a major role in helping girls decide to wear the hijab and learn about Islam, and has been a source of friendship and trust to all those who attend.
