Youth STEM Event – Saturday, February 16 at 3:00 PM


السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Allah subhanahu wata3ala says in the holy Quran:

“Allah is He Who raised the heavens without any pillars that you can see. Then, He Istawa (rose above) the Throne (really in a manner that suits His Majesty). He has subjected the sun and the moon (to continue going round)! Each running (its course) for a term appointed. He regulates all affairs, explaining the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail, that you may believe with certainty in the meeting with your Lord” (Surah Ar-Raad)

Our sustainer azza wajall tells us in this Aya and in many other verses about His power that created this universe. He mentions His perfect ability and infinite authority.

To ponder together in this beautiful creation of Allah “The Universe”, MANA YOUTH STEM is inviting all the young boys and girls of our lovely community to attend this awesome program performed mainly by our future leaders at MANA center (4363 N Elston Ave, Chicago, IL)

The STEM program this month will be titled: “A look into the universe” and will be presented by one of our precious MANA youth: Elias Abdoussi.

Bring your kids for an afternoon full of knowledge and savoir faire 🙂

Yummy pizza will be served at the end of the program!

The vast majority of North Africans are unaware of all of these dangerous rare diseases. Without learning and acquiring proper knowledge about these epidemics, we cannot prevent or control them, therefore MANA is inviting all of you to attend this valuable seminar to get the ajr of getting together with other families as well as obtaining an effective workshop on how to protect yourself and your families from such dangerous recrudescences.
