This workshop will attempt to examine key reasons why Muslim youth often succumb to the negative influences posed by anti-Islamic value systems. Muslim parents are losing their youth at an alarming rate. This workshop will explore pertinent ideas that can help facilitate solutions to the challenges faced by parents and youth. There are three critical stages in the raising of a child that are often overlooked by raising children in non-Muslim societies. We will examine these stages as the best prerequisites to foster happy, productive youth, filled with a clear vision of their true purpose of life, empowered with a proud Islamic identity.
