What can give you power to stay grounded as you move through the challenges of life? What is the thing that can keep you in a state of gratitude at all times? How can you adopt and maintain a zoomed out perspective that allows for judgements and reflections to be made without emotions clouding your rational thoughts?It is a sound heart. Al-qalb al-saleem. A sound heart is free from any blemish, illness, or issue. It recognizes life for what it is: a test for the believer, a place to worship and to practice patience while the promise of happiness awaits in the hereafter. But while many of us focus on how to keep our physical bodies healthy, we pay little attention to what it means to have a healthy, sound heart.

This week-long camp will allow campers to explore the foundations of tazkiyah, or purification of the heart, and the signs, symptoms, and cures of some of the most common and most detrimental spiritual diseases. Join us to take a deep dive on this essential prophetic practice and cultivate your consciousness and character, spirituality, and morality as Young Muslims in America.
