Story Night is a weekly youth program for children ages 6-8 year olds. Taking place every Wednesday from 6 pm – 8 pm in the Quran Academy, Story Night aims to plant the beauty of Islam in the precious hearts of our little Muslims. This is done through fun activities, colorful crafts, entertaining skits, and much more!

Rania Salem, a passionate organizer at Story Night, says: “My favorite part of Story Night would have to be the weekly activity because I finally have one-on-one time with some of the kids, and they get to tell me their stories of the week! Their stories of the week are anything they did at school that was interesting, if they learned something new, or if they helped someone out. I absolutely love this age group specifically because they’re so adorable and so knowledgeable; It’s inspiring. Also, this is the youngest age group the Orland Park Prayer Center caters to, so I feel like I will have the chance to witness them grow. Hopefully, they will be the future leaders of our Muslim community!”
