Level 4 - Islam & Our Moral Being (Ages 11-14)

Introduction:

The most important thing in our life is the development of our moral character. Muslims usually lack this quality. Because they are taught in their homelands that purity is attainable only by adopting the five pillars of Islam. While Quran emphasized a lot on the importance of character. Truthfulness, honesty, kindness, helping others, spending on needy, caring parents, and neighbors, supporting truth, etc. are the basic Islamic characteristics, without those no one can be a good Muslim. This course is designed to nourish the participants` young mind with these good moral concepts.
For the concepts making and enhancement of the moral personalities of the participants, this course is made in the form of stories. By these stories, we will build concepts, provide them the situation handling wisdom, etc.
