Outline

29:2

“Do the people think that they will be left to say, “We believe” and they will not be tried?” (The Qur’an, 29:2)

The hustle and bustle of everyday life may obscure our sight of the greater purpose in life, leading us to neglect or postpone our religious obligations. We oftentimes believe we can make up for things tomorrow, despite daily reminders that our time in this world is not guaranteed. Our souls yearn to gain closer to God, but we repeatedly pass up such opportunities in order to attend to the duties of the material world. We may wake up and realize that we have been consumed by this life, asking ourselves “how can I come back to the right path?”

48:4

It is He who sent down tranquility into the hearts of the believers that they would increase in faith along with their [present] faith. And to Allah belong the soldiers of the heavens and the earth, and ever is Allah Knowing and Wise. (The Qur’an, 48:4)

In the scenic and beautiful atmosphere of Sherman Lake YMCA Camp, we make a conscious effort to return to Allah (swt) and to create a spiritual atmosphere in which campers can benefit from the beauty of God’s creation. Under the guidance of several scholars, our program will integrate practical methods to achieve proximity to Allah (swt) and to prepare campers to remain steadfast on the right path even after we have returned home inshaAllah.

وَتُوبُوا إِلَى اللَّـهِ جَمِيعًا أَيُّهَ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ

Rally to Allah in repentance, O faithful, so that you may be felicitous. (The Qur’an, 24:31)

Camp 313 looks to reignite our passion to worship our Lord and to burn brilliantly in His light, serving as a step to becoming dedicated servants of God and true followers of our Imam (ajf).
