Young Muslims and Young Muslim Sisters are organizations that cater to the North American Muslim youth. Events like conferences, NeighborNETs, and more assist the youth with real-life issues like combating Islamophobia and the different temptations we face as Muslims in North America.
The Young Muslim Sisters of Baton Rouge began in 2012 to create a community of compassion, friendship, and love for our deen while enhancing the lives of those here in the dunya . We meet on Fridays every week at the main location of the Islamic Center of Baton Rouge for halaqas and activities.
To join us, request to join our GroupMe.
Shura: Co-Coordinators Ayesha Badat and Mariam Salameh, Kothar Abdelghani, Hannah Alkadi, Hafsah Mohammed, Nina Mohammed
Halaqas are every Friday after Maghrib prayer.
A halaqa (حلقة) is a religious gathering meant to study aspects of Islam, like the Qur’an or hadith. Members of YMSBR will give a halaqa once a week every Friday at Masjid Ar-Rahman after the Maghrib prayer and ending shortly before the Isha prayer.
Guests, including LSU students, are more than welcome to attend our halaqas. Please be sure to contact us beforehand to confirm that the halaqa is still meeting for that week.
As a revert, YMSBR has helped me find the community I’ve longed for my entire life in Louisiana. Going to the masjid and NeighborNETs makes me feel like I’m at home. I look forward to Jummuah halaqas every week and have made so many friends that I hope to keep for the rest of this life, and inshAllah the hereafter as well.
Hannah Alkadi has been involved with YMSBR since 2015.
