We are excited to launch our new collaboration coming this summer! The Miftaah-MYNA Seminary was created to provide sacred knowledge to the next generation of Muslims and Muslim leaders. Its purpose is to instill confidence in our youth leaders and community members through Islamic education in order to help them grow intellectually and spiritually. The courses will be taught online and will be accessible and affordable for all students.
What Is MYNA?
MYNA operates nationwide in a beautiful cycle centered around youth serving youth. These youth learn to be confident and empowered Muslims that become productive and engaged members of society.
As the youth organization of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), MYNA has touched the lives of many American and Canadian Muslim youth over the past 30 years offering the social support and national networks to mold “MYNA kids” into leaders in their local communities and the next generation of Muslim activists in America. Today, MYNA is growing bigger and better, spanning across more regions than ever and building a massive nationwide network of dedicated Muslim youth thinkers and activists who are determined to become leading voices for sociopolitical development and change in their own communities and abroad.
Works on Islamic Law (Fiqh) often begin with the chapter on Purification (Taharah). This is a must take class for every Muslim, as purification is a mandatory condition before one prays. This class will cover the principles and rulings of pure and impure substances, wudu, tayammum, ghusl, their nullifiers and more.
THIS SEMINARY WILL:
▪ Foster an engaging online North American Muslim Culture
▪ Establish a diverse & supportive network of youth and the greater community
▪ Promote Islamic principles grounded in the Qu’ran and Sunnah
▪ Spark youth involvement in community development, dialogue, and the preservation of this sacred religion
