Purpose: The Boston Islamic Center once held daily summer Dugsi sessions for the youth to participate in Quranic classes, lectures on Fiqh, Hadeeth, Seerah, Aqeedah, etc.

Within the past three-five years, these courses have not been taught extensively at the BIC, creating a lack of knowledge among the youth on basic Islamic fundamentals. Particularly among the youth who no longer attend Dugsi, there is a dire need to revive basic Islamic teachings that are the building blocks to Iman- belief in Allah. Parents of these youth, and young professionals of the BIC community have come together to create a Summer Enrichment Program as a means to bring back Dugsi courses for the youth during the summer.


The Boston Islamic Center (BIC) Summer Enrichment Program is an opportunity for young youth to participate in spiritual enrichment, by focusing on Aqeedah, Fiqh, Tafseer, and a study of the stories mentioned in the Quran. During the months of July and August, the youth at Boston Islamic Center will participate in facilitated lectures, group discussions, outdoor activities, and programming geared towards spiritual enhancement. By the end of the program, participants will:

  • Acquire a greater and deeper understanding of their religion/faith

  • Obtain the necessary tools required to lead a balanced and wholesome life

  • Connect with like-minded youth who experience similar challenges

  • Develop a better relationship with Allah

  • Learn fundamental knowledge and adopt practical life lessons to succeed in both this life and the hereafter
