Many Muslim youths are in search of spiritual nourishment. However, the urgent intellectual, emotional and spiritual needs, questions and concerns of the youth often go unaddressed by our Muslim communities and institutions. The inability to relate to the younger generation and at times, the outright censure of their doubts and opinions push them to the periphery of the religion, often leading them to leave it altogether. The purpose of this session is to shed light on the struggles of our Muslim youth today, the cultural, social and academic assault on their faith as well as the growth of atheism. The session will explore how to offer our youth a relevant and practical Islam that meets their spiritual, emotional and intellectual needs, and empowers them to win the battle for their faith.
