Nowadays the most important discussions by the youth revolve around the fundamentals of faith. One of the common questions is about the belief in God, the oneness of God, and His attributes. In fact, every individual should strive to increase their knowledge and awareness of their Lord, hence narrated from
Imam Ali in the first sermon of Nahj al-Balagha “the foremost in religion is the acknowledgement of Him, the perfection of acknowledging Him is to testify Him, the perfection of testifying Him is to believe in His Oneness.
In this course we wish to strengthen our faith, gain lessons on this topic from the Quran and teachings of the Ahlulbayt (as), increase our understanding of the first principle and pillar of faith in Islam the true belief in God, Allah, which is the center of the Muslim belief.
It is important that our youth living in the west have a basic overview of the islamic tenets. These core subjects will provide them with a great start to life and will allow them to build on their knowledge for years to come. I believe that the youth from a tender age should be exposed to this material to ensure they firmly begin to understand the world around them and the true meaning of life.
Faith is key but we must couple it with action and therefore our youth must be able to understand how to practise and apply their faith correctly. Finally Muslims living in this society must demonstrate a level of moral and ethical conduct, not only is this imperative as they contribute to a society which is founded on co-existence, but also because they are seen as important ambassadors of faith to the world.
