How To Raise Confident Muslim Kids | Webinar

In a rapidly changing world, Muslim parents face unique challenges in nurturing their children’s Islamic identity while navigating the complex environment of schools. Children are now bombarded with messaging that threatens their imaan, from sexuality to ideologies, and frequently encounter pressures such as peer pressure, poor mental health, and spiritual struggles.

The webinar “Raising Confident Muslim Kids: Strategies for Developing Islamic Identity” is designed to equip parents with practical insights and valuable tools to help their children overcome the barriers they might face in schools.
