High School Guys Saturday Halaqa
Ages: 13 and up
Time: Saturdays 1:00-2:00 pm
Location: Main Level Musalla in the Masjid
The High School Guys Saturday Halaqa started approximately the same time as the masjid. It is the “grandfather” of our programs as it used to be the only program the Masjid used to offer. It was led by Ahmed Mustafa, and many of his students are still part of MYOPPC running their own programs. The Halaqa is so important to the structure of youth programs because it gives a strong foundation of Islam to American-born Muslims. It gives them a grounded identity in being a Muslim and an American. The Halaqa is every Saturday after Dhur (1:00 pm). Many topics are addressed in the Halaqa including the Life of Muhammad (SAW) and how to incorporate it into daily struggles that Muslim teens are facing. The Halaqa is led by Azher Javaid, a graduate from DePaul University. His contact is 708-296-1150. To get reminders for the Halaqa, text @hsoppc to 81010.
