IIT Scouts

The IIT Scouts started their 13th year of the Scouts program this month. Their first outdoor activity this season was a hike at the Rouge National Urban Park which consists of a rich assembly of natural, cultural and agricultural landscapes.

The IIT Scouts provide an exciting program for youth between ages 5 to 17, with a variety of indoor and outdoor games, skill-building activities and other fun events. Scouting aims to foster Social, Physical, Intellectual, Character, Emotional and Spiritual development of youth through a non-formal, hands-on approach to learning.

Our Scouts represented Canada at the largest youth event of the world, the “World Scouts Jamboree” in West Virginia USA, this summer. They also represented Canada as Model United Nations (MUN) delegates.

The IIT Scouts group has produced many youth who have been recognized by the “Chief Scout Award”, the “Queens Venturer Award” and the “Duke of Edinburgh International Award”.

Scouting helps young people learn about and respect the environment, their communities and their world.

Our youth registration for the current Scouting season is still open. We are also looking for adult volunteers who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of the youth.

Please contact the Scouts group via email (163rdIITScouts@gmail.com) for more information.

Fresh Start For Youth

The 'Fresh start for Youth' program is now entering its fourth year and has been one of The Islamic Institute of Toronto's most successful programs.

For a whole year, high school students will have an opportunity to sit with an experienced and qualified teacher, and engage in group discussions, question and answer, other activities and much more.

However, that's not all. The most exciting part of the program will be a complete study of one of the most important classical Hadith books in existence - Al-Adab Al-Mufrad by Imam Al-Bukhari - an absolutely essential addition to the knowledge of every Muslim.

Essentials of Aqeeda

For only 3 sessions - learn from one of the foremost scholars Shaikh Ahmad Kutty about a fundamental subject! In class and online - register now!

“Aqidah is the Islamic world view which provides humans with a map to navigate the world safely to reach the ultimate destination of eternal life in the next world.

The cornerstone of the Aqidah is the notion of Divine Oneness, God's Sovereignty over the world, and man's destiny. Other tenets of faith include the concept of angels, prophecy, scripture, life after death and heaven and hell.”

We intend to explore these topics through a thematic study of the Quranic verses. The course will conclude with a summation of the main creedal points as found in Aqidah Tahawiyyah.

The course consists of three sessions and the texts used are selections from the 'Qur’an' and 'Aqidah Tahawiyyah'.
