Youth Halaqa & Basketball (Brothers)
We are blessed to have a youth presence within our Muslim community in Bolingbrook. We have a youth halaqa on a weekly basis covering a wide range of topics related to the youth. We will cover aspects of the life of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), the lives of the Sahabah (peace be upon them), and current issues the youth deal with. By providing the youth with an Islamic atmosphere where they can form bonds of brotherhood with their peers, they become comfortable with Islam and its teachings. We encourage these youth to take the next step and become the torchbearers of Islamic work in America. We stress the importance of knowing, understanding, and fulfilling our individual and collective obligations as Muslims.
The purpose of these weekly gatherings is to connect with the future generation of Islam in America and instill within them awe, love, and inspiration towards Allah and His Rasool Muhammad (peace be upon him).

Scouting is fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today – and for life. The purpose of Scouting is to encourage the physical, intellectual, social, emotional, and spiritual development of young people so that they take a constructive place in society as responsible citizens, and as members of their local, national, and international communities.
MAB offers Family Scouting for boys and girls who are in Kindergarten through fifth grades or who are between 5 to 10 years old to join our Cub Scouts (Pack 99). Kids who are older than 10 years old or those who have completed the fifth grade, can join the Scouts BSA program (Troop 99). At MAB Scouting Program, Scouts learn life skills via scouting activities and build their confidence while instilling values of the BSA Scout Law and Scout Oath. BSA Scout Law and Oath are consistent with and are ingrained in Islamic laws, and each scout must memorize in their hearts and practice it while they are scouting. MAB Scouting Program adopts Scouts BSA material and follows its guidelines. We are chartered by Midwest Islamic Scouting Council (MISC) in Three Fires Council as Pack and Troop 99.
Meeting and outings are mostly on the weekends
