From Arabic courses to classical Islamic studies, our community is striving to provide a variety of alternatives for American Muslims seeking traditional knowledge. Unlike any other program, HIRA was created entirely for you - the Youth. Come spend a few life-changing weeks with an array of scholars and other talented youth to build a stronger understanding of your religion and discover new skills to implement all that you have learned in your personal life and greater community.

Mission: To provide an environment of learning and development that will drive a change in self for the betterment of the community and humanity. An intensive program that will sow the seed of desire to seek deeper knowledge through better understanding of our relation with Allah and the application of Islamic knowledge in our personal and collective life.

HIRA AT MYNA SNR 2017.

For some students (and RAs), 3 weeks wasn't enough, so we signed up for MYNA SNR and attended only 2 days after HIRA ended. No matter where we go, HIRA kids have a special brotherhood and sisterhood that will forever bond us. Alhamdillah #catchthesnap

The post HIRA depression has officially set in 😔

Alhamdillah for an amazing 3 weeks. We laughed, we cried, and we took 5 min naps in between. From roaming the streets of Chicago to making hour long group duaas, the bonds of sisterhood and brotherhood that were formed at this HIRA are ones that will last a lifetime. We left feeling spiritually rejuvenated and ready to tackle whatever life brings our way with Allah's support.

The success of HIRA is very dependent on the individuals who attend. Without a doubt, the group of sincere students and dedicated resident advisors are what made this HIRA so special. Jazakallahkhair to all the parents that trusted us with their kids and to everyone who made duaa and donated to contribute to our program.

Stay posted for our soon to be announced 2018 dates and location, inshallah!

Today we wrapped up our week on social justice and intersectionality with a MYNA pioneer, Dr. Maliha Chishti. She challenged us with a fun yarn activity to think about how different aspects of our faith and activism relate, while sharing amazing stories from her life and her work serving the ummah. Jazakallahkhair Sister Maliha for a profound and engaging afternoon!

Jummah Mubarak! Fridays are always special and full of Barakah.

Our female students sat down today at lunch and got some lingering questions answered by Shaykh Hassan Lachheb. Afterwards, we had the privilege and honor of having an on campus Friday khutbah by Imam Dawud Walid.....more fun Friday plans to follow 😁

Alhamdillah!! After a long week of classes and getting into routine, HIRA students hit the road to take a break by spending the day in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We visited a beautiful park and had dinner at the lake.

To end our day, we had the honor and privilege of hearing sister Janan Najeeb talk about her inspiring work with Islamic Resource Center and Milwaukee Muslim Women's Coalition. We were amazed to hear how a small women's organization, evolved into an amazing resource for the greater Milwaukee community.

Yesterday we concluded with our lessons on Quranic Sciences with Ust Ismail Ibn Ali. Before he wrapped up his last class, he wrote his phone number and email on the board and told the students to contact him anytime if they ever needed anything.

This is what being a student at HIRA is about — access to knowledgeable, genuine teachers who care about you. Thank you Ust. Ismail for all the knowledge you shared and the great company you gave us. #Ayyyeee #Mindblowinglessons #HIRA2K17

Today we begin the Shama'il to learn about our beloved Prophet Mohammed PBUH with Sh. Hisham Mahmoud.

With a more intimate topic, we sat down in a circle to create a more intimate setting.

We have officially kicked off our first day of classes! Students are learning about Quranic Sciences with Ust. Ismail Ali from Fawakih.

It's only day one and students are quickly realizing that Arabic is complex but beautifully portrayed in the Quran when you work to understand it. #HIRA2K17
