The Young Muslims UK (YMUK) is a dynamic and innovative youth organisation spanning the width and breadth of the UK. With branches in nearly all the major cities and members all over the country, YMUK is a leading force in encouraging positive contributions to British society through the development of a British Islam. Our main focus is to keep the Muslim Youth active by helping those in need, whoever they may be.
Established in the UK in 1984, YMUK has an outstanding track record in providing Islamic Education to youngsters. The Young Muslims iCircle Syllabus is the next step in providing Islamic Education to TODAY’S 11-16 year olds, using an approach which is appropriate to the society in which we live in today.
The circles provide interactive teaching methods which the youth of today are used to, and aim to allow the attendees to engage in the learning process through carefully planned workshops.
Throughout the course of the iCircle, attendees are taught a syllabus which teaches them how to practice Islam on a day to day basis, as well as how to engage with the wider society around them. The iCircle aims to produce the next generation of Muslim Leaders and Role Models. Some of the topics which are taught include: Character & Manners, Love for Parents, Procrastination, Tahara (Spiritual Purity), Death & The Grave, Signs before the Day of Judgement, The Day of Judgement, Heaven & Hell, The Messengers (peace be upon them all), The Angels, The Books of Allah swt and Pre-destination.
All of our lead mentors are DBS checked and have been involved in working with the youth for a minimum of 5 years. They range from various Sunni Islamic backgrounds, and help us to achieve our aim to focus on areas which provide a sound understanding of the basics of Islam, and to instil tolerance in areas where there are minor differences of opinion.
