Assalamu-alaikum (peace be upon you) IYG blog visitor,

The calendar has officially turned to November meaning breezy weather, snow, and howling winds are on the way (hopefully not too soon!). Surprisingly the weather this evening was pleasantly warm which provided a nice backdrop for our short walk outdoors to the site of tonight’s event. Earlier this evening our young men took part in a fun game show where their knowledge on various topics they learned through their days in Islamic School was tested. Lessons from the seerah, Qur’an, and acts of worship were all fair game as our youth tried to work their way from Level 1 (first grade) upwards. How far would they reach in two hours…well you’ll have to ask them to find out! A few pictures from tonight’s event captured the intensity of the game:
