Rising Souls is a mentorship program for youths ages 11 to 14 taking place every Friday at 8PM-10PM in the Youth Lounge. Students are placed in groups with two mentors per group. The semester consists of weekly lessons, mentor time, outings, mandatory service projects, and a graduation ceremony. The goal of this program is to create an open Islamic environment for kids to grow spiritually, mentally, physically, and intellectually. Through this program, the children will establish ways to become active members of our community through lectures, classes, activities, workshops, and community service.

Our mission is to help nurture mentors and mentees a lifelong relationship and to develop an understanding of Islam incorporated with general and cultural manners and behaviors to the younger youth and our future generation.

  1. Provide a diverse array of programs that will appeal to the youth of Dar Al-Hijrah and beyond.
  2. Provide programs that develop youth Islamically, either directly or indirectly.
  3. Provide opportunities for youth to be empowered in the planning, implementation, and participation in activities.
  4. Provide opportunities for families to play a greater role in their youth’s growth and development.
