ILC Plus Ramadan Program
Promoting a Community of Growth
ILC+ provides a place for youth and their families to spend Ramadan. Children are taught life skills by managing iftaars, hosting their parents, and setting up for Taraweeh prayers. Children who have memorized the Quran (hafiz), lead the Taraweeh prayer, alongside famous Qaris/Imams. Seeing their peers take on such leadership roles gives children relatable role models they can aspire to.
This year, girls and boys age 13-18 will choose a topic, research it, and prepare 5-7 minutes talk, also known as a kathara, to deliver between the Taraweeh prayers to the community. This will help develop future leaders in our community, teach them public speaking skills, promote gender-equality, research, and keep children engaged. All of the Ramadan programs and activities are completely free to all.
Ramadan Programs & Activities:
"O you who believe, fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you may (learn) self-restraint."
