Assalamu-alaikum (peace be upon you) youth, parents, and readers around the world,

Sadly tonight marked the end of our Spring 2014 Program for our younger youth. Alhamdulillah this past semester, we’ve learned about gems found in the Qur’an in the surahs we recite daily, good qualities to look for in friends (thanks to How to Train Your Dragon!), dealing with our feelings of anger in a healthy manner, the power of forgiveness (shout out to Br. Majid Mahmoud), and thanking our parents for all that they do for us. Tonight was a final way for our IYGers to celebrate all that they had learned and accomplished this past semester. What better way to celebrate than to go to the one place where EVERYONE can be a kid (again)…CHUCK-E-CHEESE!!!

Baha and friends start counting how many tickets they have won. The guys decided to pool ALL of the tickets together to pick one prize for the youth group! How cool is that?
