On Saturday August 1st, 2015, Muslim Family Services (MFS) offered a post Eid event for youth called “Young Muslim Fun Day” with over 200 guest in attendance. The event provided several ‘funstations with activities for the children to partake in. Some of the activities present were a t-shirt design station, football toss, tug of war, face painting, henna, win a fish game, hopping sack race, find the match, water wars and much more!
The event was free of cost and intended as a gift for the community children. The guest were provided with a pizza lunch, soft-serve ice cream, cotton candy, ice cold drinks and plenty of candy! The children were given ribbons with slots for station leaders to mark. Once a child completed every funstation, they could come receive a prize! Alhamdulilah, the children enjoyed themselves very much. They wore laughter and smiles on their faces on the hot August summer day.
We, at MFS, strive to give back to our community as best and as often as we can. Events like these should be available for the Metro-Detroit youth and we would like to be at the forefront of providing such opportunities inshAllah. All praise is due to Allah (swt) for providing us with the means and health to offer such an event and we only pray to improve in future events inshAllah. We would like to thank all guest and volunteers for coming out. May Allah the almighty reward you all immensely!
