Assalamu-alaikum (peace be upon you) youth, parents, and readers everywhere,

Tonight was supposed to be our semester youth community service project…however the West Lafayette community was fortunate to enjoy a visit from guest speaker, Br. Majed Mahmoud. As Br. Majed was scheduled to deliver a talk about repentance Friday evening (around the same time as our youth group event), the IYG mentors decided to tweak the original plan. As our youth gathered at the ISGL, they were surprised with the good news that they would instead be playing 50 minutes of non-stop indoor soccer. Afterward, our young men walked to Stewart Center on Purdue University’s campus to listen to a valuables lesson delivered by Br. Majed. Below are a few pictures capturing the fun soccer match which took place before Br. Majed’s talk:

Mujtaba and Danyal wait for the referee to blow his whistle to start the match...meanwhile Omar, Abdallah, and Mohamed form the Impenetrable Wall of Defense!
