The Age Our Test Begins
Puberty is an important stage in everyone’s lives. It’s when our minds begin to mature, when our bodies begin to go through physical changes and when our actions begin to be recorded. We are in a society where dealing with those changes can become a challenge for both parents and our maturing kids.
We have put together this amazing workshop to educate our budding youth about how to navigate this journey their body is embarking upon, how to attain the ultimate treasure of worshipping Allaah upon clarity and determination, and how to make the right choices in life in maintaining that balance between their future and their religion.
