A new session Of Active Saturdays starts 22 January 2011 | Karachi Pakistan Islam

Share on Facebook

In 2002 (or was it 2001? I forget), a group of guys got together and started a small program for young men. The concept was to provide a place to hang out on Saturday afternoons, while learning something about Islam. In addition, it would provide the youngsters some role models who would be from all walks of life and demonstrate that one can be a practicing Muslim while working in a professional capacity or being an entrepreneur (or being a Blogger like DiscoMaulvi).

Forward a few years and Active Saturdays has now become a program that is held on a semester basis, with a special deen-intensive Summer course titled Islamic Fundamentals and a road trip titled Sirat-e-Mustaqim (I was on the 2005 trip and it was great!).

The program is held every Saturday from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm at two locations:

  • Reflections, near CBM, Korangi Creek (with a Pick & Drop option from Sultan Masjid)
  • Role Model Institute, 38-Y, PECHS (Near Union Club)

 

 

Active Saturday

 

The program attempts to provide physical activity, interactive discussions, social as well as informative field trips, and various topics both Islamic and pertaining to self-improvement / leadership. The program places strong emphasis in leadership and many of its students are now “teachers”, serving as a role model for new generations of students enrolling.

For more information on the program, head over to their website, or contact Tayyab at 0321-244-7198 or 0331-227-3427.

  1. So does this helps in implementing deen in our life? especially when dealing with others? Cause I know of people who talk so much of Islam, but when they deal with others, like in money matters, they put Islam in their pockets.

      It is our sincere effort to teach integrity & honesty to our students; whether in their academics or their daily life. Emphasis is placed on morals & character while in stilling awareness of Allah and His commandments.
