Clubs and Sessions for Our Youth

The Youth Committee at the IAR is offering a variety of Clubs & Sessions for our youth.  Generally all clubs and sessions require registration and are 6 weeks long from 6:30pm to 8:00pm with breaks for Salah. Youth will have the opportunity to network with other youth and with our professional community members while gaining a skill. Our goal is to offer more Clubs & Sessions as they become available. For more information and to register please see below.

Athan & Iqamah Club

Brothers, you can become IAR’s newest Muadhin! Our young brothers in Middle and High School are invited to join a 5 week Athan and Iqama club to learn about the history and virtues of making the athan, the meaning of the athan and iqama, and basic fiqh behind the athan. 

Through demonstrations, memorization and correction, you will learn how to give the athan and iqama properly. You will also get to hear the different melodic styles from around the world.

The Athan and Iqama Club will meet on Tuesdays from 6:30 – 7:15pm. A short reminder will also be given at each session.
