Rosebuds Halaqa

The Rosebuds Halaqa is a halaqa for Muslim tween girls (ages 10-13). The idea behind the Rosebud halaqa is to create an Islamic environment for our budding Muslim tweens where they can form a sense of belonging, create positive relationships, strengthen their self-esteem, learn important life skills, have clean fun and most importantly, create a healthy support group made up of their own peers that they can fall back on as they navigate through life. All the while growing closer to Allah SWT week after week, halaqa after halaqa.

Ages: girls, 10 - 13 years old

3:00pm to 5:00pm

Frequency: Weekly

Cost: These halaqas are free of charge. However, you are encouraged to donate generously! Donations will go towards refreshments and halaqa activities.
